Forty40 Racing is THE team to drive for in saloon car endurance racing.

Arrive & Drive Racing

Using BMW 116 Trophy saloon cars we offer the most comprehensive packages for drivers looking to turn up, race and win. All our cars are prepared to the highest standard and our support team are always on hand to ensure the cars are in top racing condition and you have the best chance of winning. Generally you will be sharing the car with one or two fellow drivers, experiencing 30-50 minutes of intense, closely matched endurance racing. Our cars are fitted with radios and data systems so that as a driver you will have all the information needed to make race defining decisions and the support team around you to make those decisions count.

Driving for Forty40 Racing includes:

  • All logistics (cars, equipment etc) and consumables (fuel, tyres, brake pads etc.)
  • Club Membership Fee
  • Series and Race Entry Fee
  • Comprehensive spare parts
  • Race day refreshments (water, soft drinks and snacks)
  • Driver rest areas (guest passes available by arrangement)
  • Full qualifying and race technical and strategy support – each car has its own dedicated engineer plus a team manager shared between both cars.

How Much Does It Cost?

At Forty40, we tailor each experience to the individual. Therefore offering an exact quote is not possible without knowing exactly what you want. However, we are confident that you will get the best value for money on all of the services we offer.

The cost for a season of 116 Gaz Shocks racing compares favourably with the cost for a season of Karting. However, your races will be at Silverstone and Brands Hatch, not Rye House or Tilbury. Furthermore, the strict rules of competition that Club 750 imposes means that nobody is able to “pay-to-win” by buying upgraded equipment. It also means that your season costs are fixed and will not go up during the year.

Please contact us with your requirements and we will respond with a price for your racing experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

What services does Forty40 offer?

  • Track Days,

Each service is tailored to your individual needs so contact us for a quote if you are interested in any of these services.

What is endurance racing?

Endurance racing in the 116 Trophy takes place over 90 minutes, with two mandatory driver changes.
This makes the series ideal for two or three drivers to share a single car, which not only keeps costs down but means drivers must work for the team as well as themselves.
Organisers are looking to expand race distances to two- and three-hour races in2021.

What race series does Forty40 compete in?

Currently, we compete in the Gaz Shocks 116 Trophy governed by Club 750 Motorsport. This is the only entry-level competition to use performance oriented RWD cars.

New for 2021, Forty40 racing will be entering the multi-class Roadsports series. See this news article for more details on what you could be driving if you want to drive in this series.

How many cars are on the grid?

At least 25 cars are expected to take part in each round of the Gaz Shocks 116 Trophy in 2021. More than 40 cars eligible for the series have been built which means the 116 Trophy will be in high demand.

What do I need if I want to hire the cars?

You do not need a special driving license or equipment if you want to hire our cars for corporate or private track days that are not part of official racing events.

What do I need if I want to race the cars?

To race in the 116 Trophy series, you will need the following:
