When David Brodie embarked upon a successful saloon car racing career in the 1970’s with the famous ‘Run Baby Run’ BDA engined Mk1 Ford Escort, little did he realise that the legacy would be the Brackley based business that still embodies many of the lessons learnt nearly half a century ago and still bears witness to his name (BBR = ‘Brodie Brittain Racing.’)

Back then Brodie’s black and gold Escort stood out from the race car crowd thanks to its awesome performance, fastidious preparation and original engineering solutions based not on theory, or trend, but on the stop watch and dyno sheet.

Over the next¬†five decades BBR GTi Ltd used its race-bred expertise to deliver market defining engine, electronic and chassis performance upgrades for a wide range of popular modern petrol and diesel road cars, including developing the world’s most successful (and officially sanctioned) Mazda MX-5 turbocharger conversion, the fastest road legal R53 MINI Cooper S and numerous rapid Ford Sierra Cosworth’s, Focus ST’s and latterly Focus RS enhancements.
