Looking for a great funding solution?

The UK’s Motorsport industry and high-performance engineering sector are second to none when it comes to innovation. Since the early days of competitive sport, Britain has been at the forefront of innovation and design of exceptional Grand Prix cars. One of the biggest testament to the UK’s motorsport related research and development capabilities is that 7 out of 10 Formula One teams have based themselves in the country to make the most of all the cutting-edge R&D that takes place here.

The UK’s Motorsport Valley ® is home to the world’s biggest cluster of high-performance engineering organisations. The over 4,300 businesses based in the valley are leading manufacturers and exporters of automotive components, techniques, and services, with an annual turnover of £9 billion in worldwide sales. Even at home, the innovative technology and designs from the motorsport industry are successfully being employed in other sectors such as defence, marine, healthcare and aerospace, to achieve optimal performance at all levels. The Motorsport industry is constantly evolving and conducting pioneering R&D, so much so that businesses within the Motorsport industry put at least 30% of their turnover back into research and development. 

Even with all the innovation and contribution that the Motorsport industry makes to the economy, recent times have been tough for businesses within this sector. Moreover, a large number of these businesses are still unaware of the funding help available to them through the government’s R&D Tax Credit scheme. There are several areas of R&D and new product development that could be eligible for R&D Tax relief. Some very specific areas include:

  • Development of innovative fuel injection technology that increases fuel efficiency and lowers emissions
  • Improvement in the design and function of exhaust headers to generate improved horsepower and performance
  • Engineering more accurate Manifold Absolute Pressure (MaP) sensors to increase power generation capability and improve engine performance
  • Designing innovative automotive part prototypes
  • Development of improved tyre designs and testing of different tyre materials
  • Improvement in torque converter system, CAD design, and CNC programming
  • Development and testing of high-performance components
