The RML Group has today announced an exclusive Open Day will be held on Friday 6 July at the Wellingborough-based facility in conjunction with National Motorsport Week.
Established by the Motor Sports Association (MSA) and MIA, National Motorsport Week 2012 runs from 30 June to 8 July – a high profile period for the sport featuring both the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix.
In support of this week-long initiative, RML will open the doors for a rare behind-the-scenes visit for the many suppliers, partners and associates who have powered the Group to a wealth of successes both in the motorsport and automotive arena since its founding by Ray Mallock in 1984.
Invitees will each receive a guided tour across the facility with key personnel, including project engineers, designers, mechanics and technicians on hand to explain exactly what it takes to design, build and maintain championship-winning and headline cars.
A highlight of the visit will no doubt be RML’s collection of current projects:
- The revolutionary ‘Project 56’ Nissan Deltawing
- Home of reigning FIA WTCC Champions – Chevrolet Cruze
- The world’s fastest crossover – Nissan Juke-R
Guests will not only be given the opportunity to see these cars up close, but by viewing each department across the company will gain a better insight as to how such projects proceed from drawing board right through to completion.
In addition guests can watch first-hand as RML’s team of expert technicians continue build of the Juke-R’s – the project which caused a worldwide media frenzy earlier this year as Nissan unveiled plans to install the GTR powertrain into the shell of a Juke, all undertaken here at RML.Avid

Over time RML has partnered several major automakers in support of their motorsport and marketing objectives. Past and present clients include Aston Martin, Saleen, Opel, Vauxhall Mercedes-Benz, Nissan and Chevrolet.
A collection of cars from RML’s past including the Mallock, where it all began, will highlight the company’s rich heritage in the sport – a respectful nod to the world class projects in which RML has been engaged in since the beginning.
