RML Group Announce New Engine Facility
RML announced today that they are expanding their comprehensive in-house capabilities with the addition of an engine facility at their headquarters in Wellingborough, UK. The new facility will be utilised on a range of RML motorsport and automotive projects to include the Chevrolet World Touring Car programme.
The facility will be headed by Arnaud Martin who joins RML after a six year career with Cosworth Racing.
RML Group Chief Executive Ray Mallock commented: "We are developing this capability to give RML greater control of its various motorsport and automotive engineering projects. It brings in-house the final element of the performance equation enabling us to deliver the most effective solutions both on and off track. It also offers us cost benefits and improved efficiency."
RML will continue to work with current engine partners Swindon Racing Engines and Engine Developments on specific ongoing projects.
RML's 4,300 square metre facility is based in Northamptonshire, England and includes full design, development, manufacturing and operational support for international race/rally programmes and automotive engineering projects.
The organisation has achieved championship success in a diverse range of motorsport categories including GT/sportscars, touring cars, rally cars, single seaters and oval speedway cars. In 2005 RML teams will compete in the FIA World Touring Car Championship and the Le Mans Endurance Series. The company also took class honours in the 2005 Le Mans 24 Hours with an MG-Lola LMP2.
