A winning formula for over 50 years

Established in 1969 and celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year, Formula One Autocentres set out with a mission to deliver a completely new fast-fit experience to its customers. This would feature clean, modern premises, high-tech equipment and highly trained technicians; far removed from the kind of service normally associated with the industry.

Fifty years down the line, we have grown to become one of the UK’s largest independent autocentre chains. The business remains family owned and continues to uphold its original commitment to delivering the highest quality service at the most competitive prices.

That commitment has proved incredibly popular with motorists, creating many thousands of loyal customers who continue to put their trust in Formula One Autocentres.

As a result, the company has gone from strength to strength, currently boasting over 110 state-of-the-art branches across England, with over 800 highly trained staff working seven days a week to provide a full range of services including tyres, exhausts, batteries, brakes, clutches, MOT's and servicing.

We remain resolutely independent, and as a family owned business, avoid being tied down to any single manufacturer or supplier. This gives us the freedom and flexibility to offer the biggest deals on the widest possible range of top branded products, making the company a viable, attractive and cost-effective alternative to both the big national chains and smaller local independent outlets. Quite simply, Formula One Autocentres provides cost-conscious motorists with the most reliable and affordable means of maintaining their vehicles.

We defend our position at the forefront of the fast-fit industry by constantly evolving and developing innovative new products and services to meet the ever-changing demands of our customers. With an ongoing expansion programme and by regular investment in technology, we continue to provide unbeatable fast-fit service along with the very best value prices. In fact, we can confidently claim that no other company is better equipped to face the motoring challenges of the future.

What people are saying about us...

  • Competitive on price prompt service polite staff. What more would you want

    - Derby - Aug 25, 2019
  • I turned up at 8.00 expecting to wait outside until the garage opened at 8.30, the guy on the desk took my details straight away even though they were not open yet and said I could go in and wait in the waiting area until the fitter started. When the fitter arrived he got straight onto it and fitted my tyre by 9.00am. The email I received when I booked the car in said no specific time but it would be fitted sometime in the morning so was really impressed when it was completed so quickly. I could see through the window that all the guys there looked like they were enjoying their jobs. When my car was finished the guy who did the job came over to speak to me which I thought was a great customer focused thing to do as often when you go to any other garage you just speak to the people on reception. These guys are a credit to Formula 1 and I will be coming back for any work in the future. Many Thanks A very happy customer.
