Dave O. from the Durham PC Users Group let us know about an upcoming tour of the ACE (Automotive Centre of Excellence) wind tunnel on February 22. From their informational poster, which is attached:

QuoteThis will blow your socks off ! ACE (Automotive Centre of Excellence) is a world-class R&D facility. Our environment can re create any weather conditions a test object will experience anywhere in the world, from the blis tering heat in Death Valley to the frigid conditions in the Arctic. We can test vehicles operating  under full load with crosswinds and wind speeds up to 280 km/h.

PLUG members are invited to attend but you need to RSVP ahead of time. They need to know numbers. The attached PDF has more details including how to get there.
