Simon Smart, founder of Drag2Zero, said: “Everything about this facility is right for us and takes me back to my motorsport roots.

“We couldn’t say no when Rob Lewis approached us with this exciting opportunity and can’t wait to move.

“From December we will be offering our studio bike fits from our new HQ.

“The wind tunnel installation is well underway and we hope to be conducting our first test there in late February next year.”

Rob Lewis, managing director of TotalSim, said: “We have created the hub to provide a central location for numerous sports engineering tools to facilitate and stimulate innovation.

“It seemed obvious to speak to Simon and ask if Drag2Zero wanted to come on board, this is exactly the type of business that we are looking to attract to be part of the engineering community we are establishing here.”

Drag2Zero has been 'optimising the riding position of cyclists' for ten years and were the first in Europe to offer this service on a commercial basis.

Since 2007 it has been using its knowledge and understanding of aerodynamics to develop aerodynamically optimised cycling equipment, working with brands such as Scott Sports, Enve Composites and Endura.
