What we do

The 50%-scale moving ground plane wind tunnel boasts wind speeds of up to 65m/sec (145mph) to deliver an unprecedented service for reliability, accuracy and repeatability; bringing an outstanding correlation to performance for on-track,
road or aerospace design.

Facilities

The Lola Technical Centre facilities are complimented by a fully secure control room with complete model making facilities. Automated model controls allow a wide range of pitch, roll and yaw-attitudes to be evaluated. A ground floor seven-post vehicle dynamic test rig delivers an additional research and development service for both commercial and competition cars.
