Advanced Engine Research has designed and built the only bespoke non-manufacturer backed LMP1 engine for the 2014 ACO regulations based, like Formula One, on establishing a set amount of energy for each car through fuel flow allocation.  The V-6 twin- turbo engine’s gasoline direct injection system works well with the new regulations’ emphasis on brake-specific fuel consumption.  AER’s GDI system was originally designed for a Formula One engine supplier as part of a development project of a 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine as a test bed for the originally proposed Formula One regulations.Learn More
Advanced Engine Research designed, built and provides track support for the engines in the GP3 Series, part of a feeder series for Formula One. They supported 27 cars in 16 races in 2013 with no engine failures, giving the engine 432 successful race finishes.  Featuring advanced electronics, the fully stressed engine is designed to run a full season without servicing.  Starting in 2015, AER designed and manufactured engines will be powering the Indy Lights Series.  As in GP3, the multi-year partnership also features an engine designed to run a full season without maintenance.Learn More
Advanced Engine Research made its racing debut in 1999. They have powered teams to forty-three championships in that fifteen-year period.  Their record includes two class wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, two at the 24 Hours of Daytona, three at the 12 Hours of Sebring and four at the ten-hour Petit Le Mans.  In 2003, they powered the first LMP675 car to take pole and overall win over their larger LMP900 competitors at the American Le Mans Series race at Sonoma, CA with Dyson Racing.  And in 2010, the AER-powered Dyson entry gave Mazda, Castrol and Dunlop their first overall LMP1 wins.Learn More
