Racing Gearboxes

Hewland invented the bespoke motorsport competition transmission and today boasts one of the largest ranges of off-the-shelf competition transmissions available anywhere. Designed to suit almost any driveline arrangement, whether it be front, mid or rear-engine, Hewland engineering has a product that is a perfect match, or we can adapt a design to your bespoke requirements, and almost always with proven race winning pedigree.

Formula One, LeMans GT, WRC Rally, Open-wheel formulas and Touring Cars are just some of the competitions that benefit from Hewland’s performance and reliability. Our philosophy of continuous improvement means that even well-established products benefit from the relentless pace of development that motorsport demands.

Race team principles and race series organisers like the German DTM Touring car series rely on the knowledge and expertise that Hewland brings to the design and manufacture of bespoke and control components. All of our catalogue range transmissions include sequential shift as standard, and are complemented by a host of differential options (including our world-leading Powerflow™ technology) to make the most of your power delivery.

Hewland transmissions may be combined with our purpose-designed “Semi-Automatic paddle shift system” (as adopted by some of the world’s leading teams and series), to provide unrivalled performance and reliability. Our specialist knowledge, experience and ability to rapidly develop products for even the most extreme motorsports, allow us to offer an ever-increasing range of products and services. With the capability to provide complete solutions, from a single customer requiring a bespoke ‘works’ solution to the supply and support of a complete race series, we continue to lead the marketplace from the front.
