Honda: Setting up base in Milton Keynes
Honda announced on Thursday that it will base its European racing operation in Milton Keynes ahead of its re-entry into F1 in 2015.
The Japanese manufacturer announced in May that it will supply power units including the engine and energy recovery systems for McLaren starting in the 2015 season.
A statement said that "the new facility will be the European frontline operation for Honda's F1 participation and will rebuild and maintain the power units developed at Honda R&D center in Tochigi, Japan. Honda will also base its trackside support operations from this new European office".
The statement added that Honda plans to start operations in June 2014.
