History

The challenge of combining the past and the future

In the ‘70s a young Giorgio Breda began his adventure in motorsport, firstly as a mechanic and then as a track technician for several teams. His teenager brother Roberto Breda followed his footsteps to become a mechanic. However, the racing world is both fascinating and unsettled, so, the human need to settle down, without leaving this sector, led to the foundation of the Breda Racing company.

At the same time, Giorgio continued his career as a race engineer, team manager, and partner of two racing teams: “Il Barone Rampante (IBR)” and “Mythos”. All those around him, including his student son and the Breda Racing staff, were trundled along into these adventures. In fact, there are technicians among our “older” personnel who were involved with those teams.

The ‘90s marked an important period for the company – the wish to create and achieve something really personal and unique led to the development and construction of a Sport Car which would compete in hill climbing races. This project required considerable effort and many sacrifices, but after those difficult years, the Breda Racing was forced to make an important decision. On one hand, the production of racing equipment and components was increasing, while on the other hand, the market for sports cars declined. It was high time the company made a choice, so the cars production had been gradually abandoned but continued to give maintenance support to. Nowadays there are a handful of Breda’s cars which are still competing, one of which is in the USA.

The determination to expand and invest in the future led to another important decision and in the year 2000, a new partner, Massimo Rizzo, joined the family company. This decision, born from a difficult moment for the company, opened a big door for the future of the company itself. With Rizzo’s company as a partner, Breda Racing moved to its current industrial unit.  At that time, when prudence was in the air, it seemed to be a huge step but after a few years the workshop had to be enlarged once again.

The wish to follow this policy – looking at the past while thanking it for the experience given but without missing it, even if with some regrets – and the wish to not stop but to grow continuously, looking at the future positively, is now more than ever in Breda Racing and its management staff member’s intentions.

So, we are celebrating our 30 years of activity in 2018, which means over 30 years of passion for motorsport. This same passion helps us to pursue our main aim: a well-done job. In order to achieve this, we put quality, balance, reliability, tenacity, commitment, determination, challenge... on the same level. Such different qualities all combined allow us to look ahead, expanding and transforming our organization without making any sudden changes and keeping intact the principles and passion for motorsport that led to the company’s foundation, which have been our driving force all these years.
