In term 2 the Engineering Society will be hosting a site visit to Prodrive’s factory in Banbury. Prodrive specializes in manufacturing and mechanical engineering and are at the forefront of technological, material and automotive innovation. As one of the major global motorsport players, they run programmes for Aston Martin in the FIA World Endurance Championship and global sports car series and for MINI in the World Rally Championship, as well as a new programme for VW in the Chinese Rally Championship. Today more than 200 Aston Martin race, MINI and VW rally cars are competing globally – all supported by Prodrive.
(entrance fee and transportation fare included in the price of the tickets)
Note: as Prodrive’s Banbury factory is currently under renovation we will only be able to host the event in term 2, we will update the event page with relevant information as it substantiates.
