Quantum Racing is an innovative automotive company based in Pulborough, West Sussex, close to the famous Goodwood motor circuit and the south coast of England that specialises in racing shock absorbers, racing suspensions, and specialised vehicle services. .
Quantum typifies the small companies on which the UK motorsport industry’s
worldwide reputation is founded.
Since the original Quantum damper was introduced in 1989, the company product has provided improved performance and thus been made available to a broader range of individuals and applications.
If your suspension setup has room to be improved, then Quantum can offer a truly unique solution.
Through the 90s and 2000s,
the company has supplied teams in:
- Formula 1
- European Formula 3000
- Japanese Formula 3000 (later Formula Nippon)
- UK Formula 3 series
- German Formula 3 series
- French Formula 3 series
- European Formula 3 series
- Japanese GT championship
- Formula Ford
- UK club racing classes, including Sports 2000 and Mini Miglia.
In 1991 Quantum expanded its horizons by introducing a version of the F1 damper to the British Formula 3 Championship, which was met with almost instant success. Paul Stewart Racing’s David Coulthard scored the company’s first F3 victory in the third round of the series at Donington Park and, in doing so, began a winning record that continues to this day. This success is one of the defining moments in the company’s history as it set us a reputation that has only grown since then.
Today the company is owned and operated by Patrick Murphy, formerly a number one mechanic with the Benetton Formula F1 team. Murphy joined the company in 1992 when former owner and ex-Penske Racing Shocks engineer Ken Anderson was managing a short-lived Quantum operation in the USA.
Quantum has developed many bespoke products that meet the requirements of the FIA Appendix K for the historic car market. This is because of the company’s in-house manufacturing capabilities that it has developed in recent years. We have also remanufactured suspension for F1 cars from the late 80s and early 90s, including several that did not use Quantum shock absorbers in that period.
Our mission is steeped in continued development in dampers and shock absorbers beyond the current F1 technology. We aim to quantify performance, improve design, and a level of service to suit all the car requirements.
Quantum shocks are made to order.
