Experience a fully race-prepared Corsa

The Big Thunder events team are pleased to offer the chance to get behind a fully race-prepared Vauxhall Corsa VXR for a thrill that’ll last longer than you think. Choose from one of our five vehicles that have been newly liveried for the 2019 events season for a more luxurious experience.

Take the car for a fast-paced lap around our exciting course, pushing it to the limit on the iconic Bruntingthorpe straight, a staggering 3.2km in length and controlling it through the many twists and turns. Our fleet of Corsa’s have been fully race-prepared by T.W.R Racing and boast 200bhp for powerful acceleration.

We’ll sit you beside one of our trained drivers who are proactive in their tuition approach, giving you the tips and tricks you need to improve your driving skills. Don’t worry though, we won’t take over. Our aim is to encourage you to push yourself further throughout the experience.

For more information on our Corsa driving experience or to discuss the possibility of organising an events day with our Big Thunder team, call us on 0116 279 9329 and we’ll be happy to help.


Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire is the current home of C Walton Limited, Manheim Auctions, Big Thunder Events, Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground and the Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, featuring the iconic Cold War Jets Collection as well as a number of other automotive businesses. All situated within the 670-acre site, there is something to meet the needs of each of our customers. Our wide range of facilities allow us to cater for any type of event, from the standard to the obscure, and thanks to our 3.2km straight, Bruntingthorpe still operates as an active airfield.
