Forti Corse, commonly known as Forti, was an Italian motor racing team chiefly known for its brief involvement in Formula One in the mid-1990s. It was established in the 1970s and competed in lower formulae for two decades with some success. The team graduated to F1 as a constructor and entrant in 1995 and continued into 1996, before succumbing to financial problems mid-season. The team competed in a total of 27 Grand Prix, and is recognised as one of the last truly privateer teams to race in an era when many large car manufacturers were increasing their involvement in the sport.
This rolling chassis with a sequential gearbox and new Hewland parts was originally raced by Roberto Moreno and Pedro Diniz in the 1995 season
