The new simulator will be situated next to the wind tunnel, and building work will begin imminently.

"We're very pleased that planning permission has now been granted and we can begin the latest phase in our development at Enstone.

We've already stated the level of our ambition with the upgrading of our wind tunnel from 50 to 60% and the development of our new supercomputer for CFD computer simulations.

The confirmation that our simulator is on the way is further evidence of our continued investment for the future", said Team Principal & MD Eric Boullier.

The new simulator is expected to be complete by March 2012.
