TDF-1 Formula One Car

For the past 2 years, Tour de Force have developed a program never before achieved in the world of private motorsport. This concept was created around the idea of a Formula one car tailored completely to private ownership. This would focus on the driver, their capabilities and come without constructor ties. The program has been born out of an engineering and F1 passion. This coupled with the experience of over 20 years working directly within Formula 1, both in the F1 pits and privately.


The TDF-1 program gives you the opportunity to push your motorsport talent and dreams to boundaries only ever before seen within Formula 1 racing. Acquiring 2011 and 2012 ex F1 race chassis from constructors Marussia and Sauber, TDF developed a powertrain that has been optimised specifically for private ownership. This allows you, the owner, to drive on any track viable for open wheel operation, and the opportunity to build your ability as a driver to the very highest level. In doing so the TDF-1 Program exists without the need for support from a constructor or the associated stipulation of use, often seen under programs such as McLaren Pure and Corsa Clienti.


With a capability of performing for over 3000km of track use at varying BHP outputs before needing rebuild work and boasting benefits such as DRS. The TDF-1 is one of the fastest, most cost effective track prepared cars in the world. In order for you to benefit fully from the levels of engineering and performance the TDF-1 program provides, we have designed a tailored driver training program to fit hand in hand with the car. Taking you where necessary through everything from simulator training through to the end result, driving on track with the potential to improve on every outing. Eventually realising this on circuits across the world on dedicated private F1 events. 


With a limited run of 5 cars comprising of three Marussia MVR02 and two Sauber C31 chassis you are invited to share TDF's passion for motorsport and higher performance engineering, by becoming one of the first to own, use and reach your driving potential in the world of Private Formula 1 with the TDF-1 Program.

All new tyres are supplied directly from Pirelli, wheels are made by OZ directly, so the owner can have as many sets as they desire. Cost per KM has been calculated from running our Sauber C30 development car and based on this information this TDF-1 will average approx £20per km. 


The car comes with a warranty on the powertrain, to comply with this the car goes back to TDF for an annual service which is either on the year anniversary of first use or 3000km whichever comes first (dependant on if used at a lower Bhp output this could be more than 4000km). This will zero the car and put a further years warranty on the engine.
