This Victorian railway tunnel is being turned into a wind tunnel for F1

This will be an insane facility once it is finished

9w ago

The UK is littered with countless railway tunnels that have been abandoned since the Victorian era, but Mike Fernie has discovered a secret project that is turning one of these engineering masterpieces into a state-of-the-art aerodynamic test facility. Welcome to Catesby Tunnel!

  • Oh good. At last we will see if an F1 car really can stick to the roof of a tunnel by air pressure alone.

  • Some mates and I walked that tunnel in 1985. It was a touch sketchy at points. Glad to see it being repaired and used.

  • F1 needs to dump wind tunnels now. We have CFD, wind tunnels are an expensive waste of time. It's really inefficient excess. F1 can keep it for regulation and scrutineering purposes but the teams just don't need it anymore.

  • Is this meant to be a joke ? F1 cars using it, any cars using it ? I doubt the local ramblers association would want to walk down it. It’s not gonna happen, an obvious complete white elephant.
