How You Can Own Your Own F1 Race Car

February 28, 2020 by Mike Espindle

If you think it would pretty bad-ass to own your very own genuine F1 race car—and you should—UK-based Tour de Force Engineering (TDF) has that solution to your need for speed. The new TDF-1 is built on an authentic race-proven F1 architecture in a package that more reliable and easier to maintain for private owners. A re-purposed Marussia or Sauber chassis, suspension package and associated components are packaged with a TDF-built power plant (a turbo four-cylinder that delivers 600bhp) and a six-speed semiautomatic gearbox, which delivers 95% of the track performance of competition F1 cars.

Matt Faulks, Director of TDF, said, “As a core part of our business is maintaining modern-classic F1 cars, we know the complexities of keeping these cars on the track – from maintenance and repairs to running costs and the sheer skill needed to drive them well. With TDF-1, we wanted to create a package that allows driving enthusiasts the ability to have a genuine F1 experience that is more accessible and cost-effective.”

To ensure drivers get the most from their car, TDF provides a comprehensive driver training course with the purchase of the TDF-1. This includes one-to-one training and driver coaching with TDF-1 Development Driver, professional racing driver and W Series star, Jessica Hawkins. Drivers will also have use of TDF’s own F1-grade driver simulator, to hone their skills. Starting from $2 million, tour-de-force.co.uk
