About us - Drayson Racing Technologies

Introduction

Established in 2007, the business is founded upon Lord Drayson’s three decades of experience in science, business, politics and motorsport. Drayson Racing Technologies exists to address the challenges presented by climate change, air-borne pollution and the need for energy independence. We bridge the gap between research lab and commercial application- using the crucible of motorsport competition to promote and develop sustainable technologies that:

 

  • improve performance
  • enhance energy efficiency
  • reduce or eliminate carbon emissions

 

Specifically, we undertake research and development projects on behalf of our technical and marketing partners that are in the vanguard of today’s science and technology. This includes a focus on electric drivetrains and wireless charging, areas that have very significant commercial potential.

 

Motorsport has always been the test bed for major automotive innovation. Nowhere else are components and new technologies tried, tested and proven under such extreme conditions as on the race track.

 

  • To date the firm’s credits include:
    Leading the Formula E revolution – Drayson Racing has been scientific adviser to the series and was the first to commit to the new FIA competition, which is set to start in 2014
  • Creating the groundbreaking Drayson B12/69 EV, perhaps the most potent electric vehicle in the world today
  • Developing the Flex-Fuel LMP1 prototype, which raced at Le Mans, capable of running on E85 bioethanol or conventional petrol and which was the first bio-fuel car to win an international Le Mans race (Road America 2010)

 

Drayson Racing Technologies runs the Drayson Racing Team, having competed in international racing championships while pioneering second generation bio-ethanol fuel technologies, the team is now focused on the emerging field of electric racing and FIA Formula E.
