Mission & purpose

Operating a flourishing global motorsport business, M-Sport has quickly become an industry leader with state-of-the-art facilities at home and winning performances around the globe. Chosen to mastermind Ford’s assault on the FIA World Rally Championship, the Cumbrian-based squad have secured seven FIA World Rally Championships, 61 victories, 262 podium and 258 consecutive points finishes – making them one of the sport’s most successful outfits. In its mission to be a world leader in rallying, M-Sport also operates a thriving customer support business for private teams. Assisting Ford drivers with motorsport programmes around the world and establishing a true Ladder of Opportunity, they are the only manufacturer to offer a car across all levels of the FIA Rally Pyramid. But it’s not just in rallying that M-Sport excels, and in 2013 the company embarked on a new venture on the racetrack – catching the eye of Bentley Motors and selected to spearhead the design and development of the Continental GT3. Completing the first car in just six months, the Continental GT3 went on to secure considerable success and became the car of choice for a number of works-supported teams around the globe. In 2018, M-Sport also entered the world of electric motorsport as Jaguar’s technical partner in the I-PACE eTROPHY. Running alongside the FIA Formula E Championship, the zero-emission series completed two seasons and was M-Sport’s first step into sustainable motorsport – a concept currently being built on with the introduction of hybrid technology ahead of the 2022 FIA World Rally Championship. M-Sport is also set for expansion with the development of the M-Sport Evaluation Centre. The multi-million pound facility will provide a unique centre of engineering excellence – allowing leaders in automotive technology to follow concepts from design to production on one exclusively-situated and expertly-equipped site.
