Motorsport Solutions

The use of technology in a racing environment pushes materials to their absolute physical limits. To achieve peak-performance, profound experience and knowledge of highly specialized techniques are required

The development of racing systems represents a balance between technical needs, adaptation to highly dynamic situations, deep understanding of the safety, and economic factors. In the Motorsport environment, we are specialists in power-train and vehicle engineering enterprise dedicated to delivering exceptional value to our clients with innovative engineering solutions. From the genesis of our racing capabilities, which originated in engine-management control systems, our focus has expanded to cover the Electric and hybrid-vehicle sector, Racing Engines, and Racecar design and development. We have demonstrated our capabilities with a proven track record in solving complex engineering challenges for Motorsport projects. Our success can be attributed to our highly skilled and committed workforce, its comprehensive in-house test and development facilities, and our state-of-art design and manufacturing facilities.

We pride our self in being one of the best automotive and Motorsport engineering consultancies, differentiating ourself from the competition by focusing on the following key areas:

  • We go beyond “meeting customer specifications” to deliver comprehensive and exceptional resolutions to complex engineering challenges.
  • We consider the whole life-cycle and engineering context to reveal associated opportunities for adding value.
  • We are working sensitively and harmoniously with the client’s departments and workforce to ensure the optimum integration of our work into the product and client organization.
  • We keep project teams small and flexible so that overhead is minimized, communications optimized, and maximum focus remains on our client’s priorities.
