M-Sport Factory tour

Join us for a tour around M-Sport.

Growing in size and stature since originally formed in 1997, M-Sport now operates a flourishing global motorsport business on the stages and circuits of some of the world’s most acclaimed motorsport series.

Event information

Providing the engineering expertise behind the award-winning range of Ford rally cars as well as the Bentley Continental GT3, M-Sport has quickly become an industry leader – delivering winning performances around the globe.

Continuing to expand, M-Sport is also in the process of a vast new development with a state-of-the-art Evaluation Centre currently under construction.

Once completed, this facility will provide a centre of excellence where motorsport and automotive leaders can follow a project from concept to product all at M-Sport’s high-security base on the edge of the UNESCO English Lake District National Park.

Founded my Malcolm Wilson OBE Malcolm Wilson Motorsport Limited was founded in 1979 and changed its name to M-Sport in 1996 when the company was awarded the Ford contract for rallying as well as competition research and development.

Under Malcolm’s leadership the team enjoyed much success, including winning the FIA World Rally Championship for Manufacturers two years running in 2006 and 2007. In 2017, they secured the Manufacturers’ crown for a third time as well as their first FIA World Rally Championships for Drivers and Co-drivers.

Aside from rallying, the team also enjoys success on the racing scene. Through the reputation that M-Sport holds, Malcolm was approached by Bentley Motors Ltd in 2012 to build the Bentley Continental GT3 competition in the International Blancpain series.

M-Sport’s nerve center is Dovenby Hall, a former hospital that enjoys an idyllic setting in the heart of the Cumbrian countryside. The site has been extensively renovated and the old manor house now sits next to a state-of-the-art workshop.

The extensive site contains everything the team needs to function, with the vast majority of components produced in-house. The competition cars have the whole world as their stage, but everything comes together in a quiet corner of Cumbria.
