Arden International is an international Formula 3000/GP2 Series team, created by Christian Horner.

Initially created to raise up Horner's career, and then reliant on sponsorship from Viktor Maslov, the team began to get good results and was the best team of Formula 3000 in its last years, showing new talents to motorsport world like Darren Manning, Tomáš Enge, Björn Wirdheim and Vitantonio Liuzzi.

Yelmer Buurman driving for Arden at the Silverstone round of the 2008 GP2 Series season.

The team won two titles (2003, with Wirdheim and 2004, with Liuzzi), has scored 334 points, won 15 races and achieved 20 pole positions in Formula 3000.

In 2005, Arden stayed in the series, now rebranded as the GP2 Series and achieved second place in the Constructors' Championship with Heikki Kovalainen and Nicolas Lapierre, and second place in the Drivers' Championship with Kovalainen.

In 2006, Arden competed in GP2 with Lapierre and the rookie Michael Ammermüller (Neel Jani acted as a substitute for Lapierre when the latter was injured in the race at Monaco). This year, Arden suffered a massive drop, and had only 57 points to show, compared to the previous season's 126.

For 2007, Arden signed Bruno Senna, nephew of triple F1 champion Ayrton Senna, and A1 Team South Africa driver Adrian Zaugg.

For 2008, the team was renamed Trust Team Arden, after its Dutch title sponsor Trust. Swiss driver and Red Bull talent Sébastien Buemi and Dutchman Yelmer Buurman were its race line-up. Midseason, Buurman was replaced by ART Grand Prix outcast Luca Filippi.

For 2009, the team signed F3 frontrunners Sergio Perez and Edoardo Mortara.

Arden also operated A1 Team Great Britain in the first season of the A1GP series.

For 2010 they will operate a GP3 Series team with Mark Webber, the team will be called MW Arden. This builds on the fact that Mark Webber races for Red Bull Racing, which is run by Arden Team Owner and Team Principal of Red Bull Christian Horner.
