New facility will focus on innovations that will boost the performance of future GM vehicles.
General Motors will open a new technical centre by mid-2020 in North Carolina. The facility will focus on performance and racing with the goal of expanding GM’s capabilities, and then transferring that knowledge and resources from the racing programs to core vehicle engineering.
“The new facility will be close to a number of key Chevrolet and Cadillac racing partners, teams and suppliers,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. vice president of Performance and Motorsports. “This will allow for improved collaboration as well as access to some of the industry’s best talent.”
The centre will provide GM the opportunity to expand and enhance its support for Chevrolet NASCAR race teams as well as various other GM racing teams. “Racing helps us accelerate the development, performance and popularity of our cars and trucks across the world,” Campbell added.
