Business Club trip to Dovenby HallThe fourth Carlisle United Business Club meeting of the season takes a different format on Thursday 8 December as we head to Dovenby Hall, the home of M Sport.
The evening meeting will include a tour of the premises, presentation from Managing Director Malcolm Wilson and opportunities for guests to network whilst enjoying refreshments.
Dovenby Hall is the nerve centre of Ford's World Rally operation. A former hospital that enjoys an idyllic setting in the heart of the Cumbrian countryside, the site has been extensively renovated and the old manor house now sits next to a state-of-the-art workshop.
The extensive site contains everything the team needs to function, with the vast majority of components produced in-house. The rally cars have the whole world as their stage, but everything really happens in a quiet corner of Cumbria.
M-Sport's premises at Dovenby Hall set a benchmark in rallying. Few teams can boast a home set in 115 acres of lush parkland, the modern technology and engineering facilities found in the new workshops contrasting with the beautiful Cumbria countryside and the restored splendour of Dovenby Hall itself, a listed building of special historic interest
