McLaren Group joins Make it in Great Britain exhibition
The McLaren Group has been chosen for the Make it in Great Britain exhibition at the Science Museum.
The exhibition will run throughout the Olympic and Paralympic Games and will showcase the best of British manufacturing.
McLaren Group executive chairman Ron Dennis said: "There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the UK's refocus on manufacturing and engineering has not come soon enough. The Make it in Great Britain exhibition is a golden opportunity to change perceptions and inspire more young people to take up science and engineering as a career."
McLaren Group will showcase three products, a Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 car, a McLaren MP4-12C sports car and a Specialized S-Works + McLaren Venge high-performance bicycle, all built at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking.
Business minister Mark Prisk said: "We have selected a really exciting mix of exhibits, and I hope that as many people as possible visit the exhibition and see all of the great examples of British design and manufacturing – it will be spectacular."
The exhibition was launched last year by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (DBIS) in a bid to transform the image of modern manufacturing. One of McLaren Racing's young engineers, Bernadette Collins, has been selected to act as an ambassador for the campaign.
The exhibition will be open from July 24 to September 9, and is free to visit. For more information click the link below
