Williams to expand Grove factory
When Williams Grand Prix Engineering moved to its new factory in Grove, near Wantage, six years ago the team seemed to be a little lost in the vast new facility.
There has been talk for some time that Williams may also be considering the construction of a second windtunnel at the Grove site as the current 50% rolling road facility is now much in demand. The windtunnel actually dates back to the late 1980s when it was the most advanced such facility in the world and in 1995 the 165-ton structure was cut into three pieces and moved from its original location in Didcot to Grove and then reassembled.
