Discover why a Formula 1 car doesn’t fly this half term at Haynes International Motor Museum

From 10am –2pm on Monday 31 May – Friday 4 June, the Education Team at Haynes International Motor Museum are demonstrating their working wind tunnel as they simulate how and why a Formula 1 car’s aerodynamic design cuts through the air.

In addition, Haynes International Motor Museum’s new exhibit Williams F1: The Drivers and the Driven lets visitors get up close to some of the most iconic Formula 1 cars in Williams’ history, such as Nigel Mansell’s FW14 or ‘Red 5’ and Damon Hill’s FW17. The new exhibit also enables visitors to experience a Formula 1 race car from a Driver’s point of view in the new cinema space. A special display of a crashed Formula 1 car showcases why driver safety is so important on the track, as well as explaining the high tech materials used in Formula 1 race cars.

The Williams F1 exhibition is one of seventeen large areas to explore and one of four new exhibitions which immerses visitors in the stories, sights and sounds from throughout motoring history.
