At Prodrive we like to challenge convention. By combining our Motorsport ethos with free thinking we create innovative products to short timescales, which inspire our customers in the automotive, aerospace, marine and other sectors to realise their ambitions. We also happen to make championship-winning race and rally cars. Prodrive is a world leading Motorsport and technology business. While we are perhaps best known for Motorsport, today it is just one part of an organisation, which has diversified to become a technology business working in a range of sectors with operations in Banbury and Milton Keynes in the UK and employing more than 500 staff. Find out more about our company, our culture and our Motorsport achievements. Prodrive is one of the world’s largest and most successful motorsport and technology businesses. We employ more than 500 staff at our headquarters in Banbury and our composites manufacturing facility in Milton Keynes. While the company is perhaps best known for motorsport, today it is just one part of an organisation, which in the last decade has diversified to become a technology business working in a range of sectors and providing a range of services. Within the Prodrive Group, there are four distinct but interconnected business areas: MOTORSPORT: race and rally programmes for vehicle manufacturers and global brands. ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY: innovative technology for the automotive, aerospace, defence and marine sectors. COMPOSITES: lightweight composites components for the automotive, aerospace and marine sectors. BESPOKE COLLECTIONS: clothing and accessories for leading brands. MOTORSPORT Prodrive has been competing in the major global motorsport series since it was founded in 1984 and has won six World Rally titles; four British Touring Car Championships; four Le Mans titles; the Le Mans Series; FIA WEC GTE Am Teams' and Drivers' title, numerous national rally championship titles, as well as managing the BAR F1 team for three seasons taking it to second place in the F1 constructors' world championship. Today we run programmes for Aston Martin in the FIA World Endurance Championship and global sports car series and for MINI in the World Rally Championship, as well as a new programme for VW in the Chinese Rally Championship. Today more than 200 Aston Martin race, MINI and VW rally cars are competing globally – all supported by Prodrive. In 2013 we made our first venture into Global Rally cross and our MINI RX won on its debut in the Global Rally cross Championship. With the innovative technology and techniques used in motorsport, it was a natural progression that Prodrive would offer its engineering skills to the mainstream automotive market and beyond. Today this division represents more than half of the company’s sales with more than 100 engineers working on projects for leading vehicles manufacturers, as well as businesses in the aerospace, defence and marine sectors. We have developed a particular specialism in electro-hydraulic and electro-mechanical actuation systems, the latest electric and flywheel hybrid systems; DC-DC converters for electric cars; as well as the design and manufacture of limited edition performance and luxury cars.
