Leafield Technical Centre is the former Caterham F1 Headquarters, based in Oxfordshire. There is history already on here about this place as most people know, so i shant bother you with it :)

THE EXPLORE
I was here a week or so ago for a couple of hours but decided to come back now I had a camera in hand as opposed to just the iphone! It was a really nice evening, I was here right through sunset until it was dark and even had the joy of slipping out past 2 fellas that turned up in a black 4x4 of some sort with torches. I was circling around the back of the site taking a few snaps when i saw the 4x4 pull up and the guys inside get out and immediately split up and began looking around and shining their torches all over the place, I got out without a problem and i don't even know if they were actually security of some sort or just other people up to the same thing as me but there we go! All in all it was a good explore, even with it being my second time there. Still managed to spot and find a few things that I hadn't on the first trip - including the metal spiral staircase which I thought was a nice touch!

Now for some photographs.....

I forgot this even existed. I remember when it was Absolutley pristine. It’s survived better than I’d imagined but it’s still an absolute wreck.
Definitely far from pristine now, shame about the simulation room!

I had an interview there in December 2005 with Mick Ainsley Cowlishaw for a job with Super Aguri. It was a real showpiece, something to be proud of, and in s beautiful location. Looks like it’s waiting for the bulldozers now :(
