Welcome to Bruntingthorpe

Whether you want to test, develop, store, refurbish, remarket or simply drive vehicles; hold a conference or an exhibition; shoot a movie or launch a new product, conduct driver training or corporate hospitality then Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground is the place to do it. With a uniquely flexible attitude, anything truly IS possible!

Conveniently located in the central Midlands area of the UK, and formerly a US Airforce base, Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground is currently the largest privately owned vehicle test track facility in the UK.

Bruntingthorpe is a unique facility….

At the heart of the 670 acre site is an impressive 6.5km circuit and an amazing 60m wide, 3.2 km straight – one of the longest in the country.

The owners, C Walton Ltd, bought the site in 1983 and have set up a diverse, yet complementary group of businesses under the ‘Bruntingthorpe’ umbrella including the Proving Ground, Events and BIAS (Bruntingthorpe Integrated Automotive Solutions)

Bruntingthorpe offers a wide range of facilities for vehicle storage, refurbishment and disposal, vehicle test and development and corporate hospitality and events. The location is also perfect for film & location hire. Big Thunder Events provides exclusive vehicle-based corporate events, all on one location.
