Back in mid May, we were invited by client Vayon to attend the High Performance, Low Carbon Automotive Day to rub shoulders with some of the biggest names in the the automotive and motorsport industries. The day-long event, aimed at engineers and key influencers, allowed for some of the most innovative companies in the space to showcase their capabilities and new technologies.

Held at the world-famous Milbrook Proving Ground and surrounded by car-enthusiasts testing out the latest sports cars, the day was broken up into two sub-events.The first was ‘Meet the Engineer’,  a series of five minute presentations, by engineers and key influencers within the industry.

The second part of the day was the High Performance, Low Carbon SME Showcase where leading industry insiders exhibited their latest innovations, met with potential partners and generally talked about cool cars.

With so many presentations taking place and companies exhibiting throughout the day, it’s safe to say that you were never left feeling bored. Being surrounded by the latest technologies, and getting to speak directly with the minds behind them, provided a great opportunity to get such a considerable insight into the low carbon vehicle industry.

The day proved to be an interesting experience. Meeting with people who were so passionate about, and helping to drive forward, innovative new technologies to make vehicles lighter, faster and more fuel-efficient.
