Andretti Global Opens New Facility at Silverstone

Andretti Cadillac UK staff gather outside new Silverstone facility

We have embarked on the next stage of our preparations to enter the FIA Formula One World Championship™ with the opening of a new facility at Silverstone Park, UK. Joined by the existing Andretti Cadillac UK workforce of approximately 80 people, we had the honor today of inaugurating this new British home for our wider Andretti family.

The new 48,000 square foot building is a milestone for Andretti Global. It is an independent property in its own name with the possibility to scale up activities as the situation evolves. The flexible space will house manufacturing facilities, including pattern, model and machine shops, ADM, electronics, R&D and additional office and meeting facilities. This new space will continue to work hand in hand with our principal Andretti site in Indiana, and our Formula E facility in Banbury and will be a collaborative site for our global family of race teams.

To date, the F1® project has been split between operations in Silverstone, Indiana and at the GM Tech Center in North Carolina. Our preparations began some time ago with a focus on critical activities such as assembling key staff and focusing on long lead-time activities including aerodynamic design, mechanical design and vehicle dynamics. The new facility will be completed in phases according to commercial and sporting needs and workforce requirements.

We have said that our work continues at pace – this new facility embodies that work. While we are building an American works team, having a European base is a great way to attract the best in F1® talent and install state-of-the-art machinery.
