URGENT OPERATIONAL UPDATE FOLLOWING PRIME MINISTER’S STATEMENT

In response to the Prime Minister’s announcement imposing strict restrictions to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus, we are closing Cox Automotive UK locations including Bruntingthorpe in order to comply.

We expect the shutdown process to be completed by 5pm on Thursday 26th March after which it will no longer be possible to enter the site. The main entry gate will be closed and only a security presence will remain on site.

We will be working through the details of the closure process today and will communicate further as soon as we are able to. The health and well-being of our team members, and safety of our customers and suppliers remains our top priority.

We appreciate that this is an unsettling time for businesses and families. Together we will get through this but I’m sure you understand that this highly necessary and responsible course of action must be taken quickly.

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.
