Made famous for its extensive use in Formula 3 Championships around the world, the FTR has proven to be one of most successful and reliable transmission solutions in modern motorsport. This gearbox has been designed to provide the ultimate in versatility for single-seater racers and other high-performance, lightweight vehicles.


An innovative design allows engine oil to be stored in an integrated oil tank, providing an overall vehicle weight-saving and allowing for maximum engineering freedom elsewhere on the vehicle. Despite this feature, the FTR manages to retain a surprisingly low weight of only 40kgs in six-speed format.

The versatile nature of the FTR has led to a wide-range of adaptations in order to suit the individual requirements of each customer application. These include the FTRL “lightweight” version, the FTRS for use in higher stressed endurance race vehicles, and an FTR five-speed unit for instances in which a six-speed system is either unsuitable or outlawed by regulations.

With a wide range of options available, including a selection of differentials and Hewland’s proven Semi-Auto system, it is highly recommended that customers considering the FTR-200 contact our sales team to discuss the best solution to meet your needs.
