Renault win approval for second wind tunnel

Sat, 5 May 2007, 09:46

Renault has won approval to situate a second wind tunnel at its Enstone base.

Despite not enjoying a competitive start to the 2007 season, the reigning back to back champions are looking to the longer-term future after being granted conditional permission from the Oxfordshire County Council to relocate a facility that is currently situated in Italy.

The approval is subject to the agreement of an ecologist, and it is reported that at least one local resident is already objecting to the development on the grounds that it will mean more vehicle movement on the local roads.

The new tunnel will create an extra 15 jobs, according to the Cotswold Journal.
