A spokesperson for Prodrive said: "Visitors will get a chance to view some its iconic Heritage Collection with cars on display including those driven by legendary names such as Colin McRae and Richard Burns. But unusually the company will also be letting people see just how those and its modern day cars are built by giving access to the facilities and workshops that put them together.

"In addition the public will be able to wander through to the engineering division of the group to see how it has played its part in projects as varied as the McLaren P1, America’s Cup Yacht’s as well as designing and building the world’s lightest folding bike, Hummingbird."

Tickets are £10 per person, with under 16s going free when accompanied by and adult. Tickets are available on a first come first served basis from bit.ly/ProdriveDay
