Whittle Building

A two-story event space with a difference.

The Whittle building is the newest addition to Bruntingthorpe’s catalogue of event venues, opening fully in 2016. The building, originally a Peugeot dealership, was purchased, deconstructed and re-erected on site to create a truly unique space for conferences, product launches and dinners. Painted in neutral colours, we welcome all vehicle brands who are able to decorate the space to suit their own desires.

Situated trackside, the Whittle Building is often of great interest to automotive events management agencies, providing everything you could need for a successful day or night. With panoramic views across the site from the first-floor balcony, visitors can enjoy full view of the Bruntingthorpe test track and product display areas.

With a 4,000 sq. ft. footprint, the Whittle Building can comfortably display up to 10 cars in a showroom-style, open plan space. Alternatively, the ground floor can seat up to 120 people in a seminar set up for smaller product launches. We also have a 20-person meeting room for more intimate talks and discussions. The first floor boasts conference-style seating for up to 50 people along with a balcony overlooking our array of tracks.

Complemented by our Control Tower, another unique trackside venue supporting up to 55 guests, the Whittle Building could be the perfect place to hold your next automotive event.
