Lotus to build wind tunnel in UK
25 October, 2010
Oct.25 (GMM) Lotus has announced it will soon start building a wind tunnel at its current UK headquarters in Hingham.
The news would seem to end team owner and boss Tony Fernandes’ earlier plans to set up camp with a dedicated wind tunnel in Malaysia.
Lotus Racing also revealed that it is expanding its current UK factory to accommodate its new GP2 team AirAsia.
“Today’s announcement … gives us the facility we need to lay the foundations for long-term success,” said technical chief Mike Gascoyne.
