Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground
Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground
A former WWII airfield, Bruntingthorpe is centrally located in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside, with good links via the A14 and M6 motorway to Leicester, Coventry and Rugby, as well as Corby and Kettering in neighbouring Northamptonshire. Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground was once the site for testing jet engines both before and after WWII ended, and even having a second life as a vehicle proving ground when it was bought by Chrysler Motor Corporation in 1973. Although changing hands a few times, the presence of cars have been a constant at this venue ever since.
But it’s now host to supercharged engines of a very different but just as powerful kind to its RAF days, scoring up and down its 4.2 mile long track, as you’ll discover when you book your next driving experience at this venue with Driving Experience.
This includes exclusive access to the most prestigious marques of supercar in the world, which can be booked for a variety of Blast and Thrill packages, offering you 3 or 6 miles in a wide mix of supercar greats, including the Ferrari 360, the Lamborghini Gallardo and the Aston Martin DB9.
Our Combined day packages also give you the option to quadruple or even quintuple your turbocharged fun, with drives in the supercar of your choice and five others, all under the guidance of an expert instructor to ensure your safety but also to help you get the most out of your day.
If you’re more nostalgic for the cars of yesteryear though, Bruntingthorpe also plays host to a variety of Classic Car driving experiences. This includes hot wheels from the golden ages of motoring in the 50s, 60s and 70s, from both sides of the Atlantic.
So whether you prefer British classics like the Mini Cooper and Jaguar E-Type, or a taste of all-American muscle cars like the Ford Mustang GT 350 and the Chevrolet Camaro SS, we’ve got the ideal retro experience for you.
For a driving day that’s supersized in every way though, there’s a wide variety of Truck driving experiences that are available to book for you to climb into the cabin of at the Proving Ground, including a Volvo FH16 600, a DAF truck, and best of all is our Optimus Prime Truck Driving Thrill, styled after the famous leader of the Autobots - a perfect gift idea to surprise fans who grew up with the Transformers cartoon series on Saturday mornings in the 80s!
