Prodrive HistorySource: ProdriveProdrive is one of the world's leading motorsport and automotive groups. Our global operations have a turnover in excess of £110 million and we employ nearly 1000 staff in the UK, North America, Germany, Thailand and Australia.
In motorsport we are the world's largest independent business with involvement in various international race and rally series. Currently, we run the Subaru World Rally Team in the World Rally Championship; Ford Performance Racing in the Australian V8 Supercar series and now the company is helping to take Aston Martin back into motorsport with a new programme, Aston Martin Racing, which has seen the British company return to sports car racing in 2005 with the DBR9 – and win its first two races. Already, we have six World Rally titles to our name and five British Touring Car Championships.
In recent years, our Automotive Technology division has grown dramatically and now represents half the group's business. Working with vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers, we have become a recognised leader in chassis dynamics, engines and powertrains and have worked with a number of manufacturers to combine these skills to style, design and manufacture niche vehicles.
Through our global resources we can inject excitement, innovation and inspiration into the products of world's vehicle manufacturers and help them create cars consumers want.
