Come and have a look in our R. J. Mitchell wind tunnel where we have a long history of exciting aerodynamics tests including working with Aston Martin, Formula One teams and Team GB athletes as well as developing the next generation of unmanned air vehicles, wind turbines and many other interesting projects!

On display will be a 50% scale F1 model that is used to help our students understand how wind tunnel experiments are carried out while giving them an insight into how the data can be used to help set up the car for different circuits.
