Used to go to 888 Racing's workshops at Greatworth Park many years ago... may have a photo or two of the site somewhere still. Pre Mira days (RAF Nuneaton) we also used buildings at Chipping Warden.

I knew very little about Greatworth, and the website is interesting but in desparate need of spellcheck etc etc.

What was MIRA's involvement with the site?

nothing.... more a case of our involvement with Greatworth and MIRA. (motorsport related)...

From what I understand the main building has been refurbished internally quite a lot, the admin/mess building was massively rebuilt and extended a few years back as the new HQ of Vauxhall Racing ('the VXR Performance Centre'.... chavtastic!) they added a new workshop complex and I think 2 new wings to the building at least.

From memory the main building was a bit of a dump, certainly the masts had gone too....


Just looked and I cant find any photographs that were taken of the buildings.
