Campos Grand Prix has received a boost ahead of its step up to Formula 1 next year after announcing a major tie-up with the Spanish Murcia regional government.
Team principal Adrian Campos announced over the weekend that the partnership with the local government and his outfit would help with the construction of a new team manufacturing plant in the Fuente Alamo Technology Park.
Furthermore, the plans will include the construction of a new race track that would form the centrepiece for Campos' aerodynamic testing plans - with the circuit having a three-kilometre straight.
The news of the tie-up with Murcia comes with Campos's car designer Dallara having hit the latest of its deadlines for completing the team's new F1 car.
