Renault Sport Open Day At Derbyshire Based HQ

Renault Sport Open Day At Derbyshire Based HQ

Sunday the 23rd of April saw Scorpion host a Renault Sport open day here at our HQ in Derbyshire. First of all we’d like to thank Nigel at Renault Sport Owners Club for his help in organising the event.

Anyway moving on, Renault and French car enthusiasts from across the UK turned up bright and early for what was set to be a fantastic yet busy day. After a brief introduction to Scorpion Exhausts as a company we swiftly moved onto the guided factory tour.

Company MD Shaun Leonard lead petrol heads around the facility, demonstrating and talking through different stages of exhaust manufacturing. One stage included a demonstration of our state of the art CNC tube benders. Did you know we can bend up to 90mm T304 stainless steel or titanium?

Moving onto our development centre. Technician Robbie demonstrated how to correctly fit a performance exhaust system to one of our employees stunning Clio 200’s. He then followed this up by conducting an EC approval noise test which every product goes through in order to receive homologation certificates where required.

Everyone who attended the Renault Sport Open Day received a goodie bag packed with Scorpion merchandise. In addition to that we decided to run a little competition at the end of the day to see if everybody had been paying attention! In the briefing at the start of the day it was made clear that 3 questions would be asked later in the afternoon giving you a chance to win an unknown prize… little did they know the lucky winner would receive a beautiful 3D printed, wide body Renault 5 Turbo, made on our very own printer which is used heavily in our development department.

Well done Rob! we hope you’re enjoying your new toy!
