Prodrive Charity Event

Prodrive Ferrari

Prodrive design, build and run motorsport and vehicle technology programmes for vehicle manufacturers. Programmes included Subaru World Rally Team, Ferrari 550GTS and the Aston Martin Le Mans cars.

Thanks to a friend of mine, he let me accompany him on a yearly fund raising event held by Prodrive for automotive professionals.

We had a chance to sit in Colin McRae’s WRC winning 555 Subaru Impreza and also the Ferrari 550-GTS Maranello driven by McRae. We also saw the development of Aston Martin v12 engines used in the Le Mans cars. There were also a few £80,000 gear boxes made for Subaru that changed gear in 8 milliseconds and a customer was hanging around with the engineers as they put his new engine through its paces on the dyno. Loud!!
