General Motors has announced plans to open a new technical center focused on performance and racing in the Charlotte, North Carolina, region. The facility will expand the company’s capabilities, transferring knowledge and resources from racing programs to core vehicle engineering.

The 75,000ft2 facility, which is expected to open by mid-2020, will be located in Concord, North Carolina. The facility will feature driver-in-the-loop simulators, vehicle simulation, aero development and other practices designed to advance racing and production capabilities.

“We’re thrilled to expand GM’s US footprint by establishing a greater presence in Charlotte,” said Jim Campbell, US vice president of performance and motorsports, Chevrolet. “The new facility will be close to a number of key Chevrolet and Cadillac racing partners, teams and suppliers. This will allow for improved collaboration as well as access to some of the industry’s best talent.”
