    Since our formation, we have completed aerodynamic consultancy in professional cycling, winter sports and OEM automotive projects; worked on the development of a lighter-than-air vehicle; conducted transmission and brake system development for clients; and worked across a range of motorsport series including MotoGP, LMP and Formula E.

    Our most recent performance partnership is with Team INEOS, the seven-times winner of the Tour de France and INEOS TEAM UK, who are aiming to win sport's oldest international trophy, the America's Cup. We began working with INEOS TEAM UK, led by Great Britain's most successful ever Olympic sailor Sir Ben Ainslie, in August 2019 and currently 18 engineers are dedicated to projects with the team aiming to win this unique sporting challenge.

  • Our Wind Tunnel:

    Moved to our new Silverstone base in 2017, our wind tunnel underwent a major refurbishment in 2007, having been originally commissioned in 2000.

    Originally used to develop Formula One cars at 50% scale, the tunnel is a state-of-the-art facility used to simulate ‘real world’ environments as closely as possible, allowing for accurate observations and measurements of air flow.

    Our facility includes a full aerodynamic support service, self-contained model prep area, fully fitted machine and trim shops, and a large meeting room with conferencing facilities.
