Case Studies

Selected Engineering Success Stories

The ultimate Engineering Challenge

In May 2009 MGI was approached by Nino Judge of Litespeed F3 to organise an application to the FIA to enter F1. This application was then financed by Tony Fernandes and his partners and subsequently Lotus Racing and MGI was one of three new entries for the 2010 season. Granted it's entry late, MGI only had six months to design a Formula One car from scratch, and manufacture it, whilst also setting up the Lotus Racing team at the same time. The car designed by MGI was the only car of the new teams to take the finish line in Bahrain at the first race of the season in March, going on to 10th place in the World Championship, and easily the best of the new entries, a fantastic advertisement for the engineering and management skills of MGI Motorsport Ltd

F1 in Aerospace

In in 2015 MGI was approached by Apex Composites, a Canadian based Composites company owned and managed by talented former racing driver Gerry Kavanaugh,  and supplying the commercial aviation sector to both provide composite design and management expertise. MGI bought F1 standards of design and reactivity to Apex, delivering on time solutions to this sector of the industry. The partnership between the two companies is continuing and expanding to this day.
