Prodrive Tour

Right WM'ers

I am going to try and organise a Tour of Prodrive for us, details of tour are below, costs will be either £22 for evening or £27 for working hours/weekend. Prodrive is at Banbury so not far

So can you say if your interested and what your preference of time would be, I will then contact them and get some dates.

Kev


During the detailed tour we cover every part of Prodrive’s operation and give a unique insight to the workings of the business.

What the tour includes:

>> Coffee and welcome in the Prodrive heritage centre where you can view race and rally cars from Prodrive’s 27 years in world motorsport

>> The workshops where we build the MINI John Cooper Works WRC and the Aston Martin Racing cars.

>> Rally car transmission and engine build and engine dynos

>> Our advanced manufacturing facilities where we fabricate and machine all the parts which go into our competition cars

>> Opportunity to visit our new shop, to buy the merchandise we produce on behalf of Aston Martin Racing as well as Prodrive performance wheels and parts and special items of memorabilia not available anywhere else. All these are available at specially discounted prices to our guests

Probably not for me evenings no good, upredictable work hours and weekends try to spend with family if not working. And the kids would get bored to quick. Soz
Sounds good though

I'd been interested in this, depending on days. Not worried about day or evening.

I'm interested and don't mind weekend or evening (although work could be problematic if it's not a WAH day or I'm somewhere that isn't on the M40 corridor).

Aye, ok for me, evenings or weekend

Having looked round Dave Richards house I might as well have a gander at his buisness

Right just heard back from Prodrive

Evenings is 25 Maximum and 10 minimum and around 2.5 hours long

Weekends are 30 maximum 20 minimum and around 3 Hours Long

So was thinking of either June 12th or 16th. I have asked Prodrive to confirm if either are possible.

Can I have some comments?

16th is Le Mans weekend, so can't make. That being said 12th is the day before we leave for Le Mans so will probably be either packed or packing...

16th clashes with an AROC event @ Guests W'hall, but that would have to give way to a Prodrive visit, so both dates are good for me Kev.

Just so you are all aware, I am waiting for a response from Prodrive, as soon as I know you all will.
