116 Trophy New Car Build

While Forty40 Racing was established in 2019 as an arrive and drive team, we recognise that there are many who want the experience of owning and running their own car in the series.

As the biggest single team in the 116 Trophy, we are pleased to be able to use our wealth of experience and knowledge of these cars to offer full ground up builds for those racers who want to own their machines rather than rent them.

 Having spent hours on the track with these cars we know the common faults, how to fix them but more importantly how to avoid them.

We aim to build a car in which the new owner can have 100% confidence from the very first outing on track. We embrace the mantra that to finish first, first you must finish and with that in mind we only offer a full service build, with no menu of performance upgrades or lists of options for essential components.

We will build you the best race car we can for a fair price.

Donor Cars

We search hard for our donor cars and only use clean, running road cars that can be fully tested prior to strip down.

Our target mileage for the donor vehicle is between 60,000 and 80,000 miles and a full inspection of each car is conducted prior to purchase
