KW Motorsport Announces KWM Consulting
Kieron Salter’s name crops up on these pages fairly regularly:
he and Teena Gade were at the NEC on Thursday, and were keen to
discuss their new ‘KWM Consulting’ project.
KWM is the company
founded by Salter and Will Phillips, after the collapse of Reynard
in 2002. One of KWM’s current projects is the conversion of
the Creation DBA into a hybrid – an image of this revised

will provide potential clients with a network of independent consulting
engineers and motorsport professionals for individual or collaborative
project work under the umbrella of the expanding KWM brand.
“There’s too much work for Will and
I,” commented Kieron Salter, “but not enough to employ
people all year round. So we’re offering clients the chance
to network a collection of talented people with a range of skills.”
to providing independent services, the network of consultants can
be pooled to create a project team that can be utilized to deliver
larger projects or jobs with short lead times.
The technology and security now available from the
advances in global high speed communications and the low overheads
of the 'virtual office' allow this kind of consultancy to operate
seamlessly and transparently as an 'on-demand' service.
The talent available already includes:
Senior Race Engineer Brian Ireland
Data Acquisition and Engineering Consultant Teena Gade
Senior Design Engineer Paul Crooks
Race & Design Engineer Adam Schaechter.
to expand the number of engineers and range of services available
through KWM Consulting as the demand for a professional and reliable
cost effective service increases," explains Salter. The team's
work isn't just confined to sports prototypes: the individuals concerned
are experienced in different classes of racing.

Kieron Salter are pictured at the NEC on Thursday. Teena will be
looking after Creation’s data logging again this year.
