Forti Corse were a Formula One team from 1995 to 1996. Before F1 they ran in various series’ including Formula 3000 & Italian Formula 3. They graduated to F1 in 1995 under the guidance of Guido Forti and competed in 27 races from the beginning of 1995. They had the experienced Roberto Moreno and his fellow Brazilian Pedro Diniz driving for them, but the car was always at the back of the pack, but came oh-so close to a points finish when Diniz finished seventh in Australia.
They returned for a second season in 1996, hiring Italians Andrea Montermini and Luca Badoer, but only lasted until the British Grand Prix, after which they folded due to financial difficulties after a failed buy-out by Shannon Racing.
Guido Forti passed away last year aged 72.
