Support Services

Take advantage of our comprehensive range of additional support services.

Bruntingthorpe is an extremely diverse and complex site and as such, benefits from a vast array of additional support services to assist our clients. We pride ourselves on our ability to support most customer needs and have developed long-lasting partner relationships with numerous local businesses to support any services we cannot provide directly.

Security is also a major issue for many of our clients, especially those looking to test new vehicles. We are committed to providing a private proving ground for all projects and use the following measures to enhance privacy and security; based in a rural location, manned security 24/7, 200,000 planted trees to reduce site visibility, high-tech site surveillance and canine dog patrols.

We also have access to our own onsite restaurant and have a number of trained first aiders available should you need them. Additionally, we can arrange for Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) to be on site to help support larger events.


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.
