Banbury’s Prodrive achieved the highest accolade in the British motorsport industry after winning the Business of the Year Award at the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA) Business Excellence awards.
The Banbury-based company is the world’s leading independent motorsport business, employing 500 people in the UK with nearly 400 at its headquarters by the M40. In 2017 the business had one of the most successful years in its history, winning the coveted 24 Hours of Le Mans and a second consecutive FIA World Endurance Championship title with Aston Martin Racing. In China, the company’s VW rally programme won more titles in the Chinese Rally Championship. Working with Aston Martin in Gaydon, Prodrive unveiled an all-new Vantage GTE race car, the culmination of two years’ work and will soon unveil an all new Megane RX with which it will compete in the FIA World Rallycross Championship. Indeed, 2018 will be the first year it will compete in two FIA world championships and Prodrive will be the only business in the world to do so.
