Prodrive is one of the world’s largest and most successful motorsport and vehicle technology businesses with annual sales of £100 million and employing more than 500 staff in the UK, India, Australia and China. In the UK, Prodrive has manufacturing facilities and offices in Banbury, Warwick and Milton Keynes.
Our tour will start with coffee in the Prodrive heritage centre where we will be able to view race and rally cars from Prodrive’s 25 years in world motorsport which have included such greats as Richard Burns and Colin McRae. There will be opportunities to see the manufacturing facilities including rally car transmission, engine build and dynos – see what it takes to make an £80,000 gearbox! We will tour the workshops where they build Subaru rally cars, the Aston Martin GT1, GT2, GT3, GT4 and the current Gulf liveried LMP1 sports cars. We will also see the advanced machine shop and CNC equipment where we hope to talk to the specialists making the parts which go into their cars.
The tour takes around two hours. At the end of the tour, the merchandise shop will be open.
There is a charge of £5 for BCS members and £10 for non-members which is a heavy discount on the normal cost of such a tour.
