Where and when is the event being held?
VOLVO600 will be held at Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds, located just outside of Leicester in the UK.
The event will start at 10:00 on Sunday, 27 June 2021 and will end approximately at 16:30.
Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome and Proving Ground is a privately owned facility near the village of Bruntingthorpe. Access to site is only permissible via Bath Lane using the post code LE17 5QS. This detail is carried on the Event Pass.
The site was originally opened as RAF Bruntingthorpe in 1942 and boasts a very impressive straight runway which is just short of 2 miles in length and affords an additional 3 miles of taxi way ideal for helping set the rolling parade. More about Bruntingthorpe here.
Patrons will only be able to attend the 2021 record attempt if they have pre-registered and are in possession of the Event Pass. Each pass is individually numbered and the barcode contains link information requested by GWR that will verify the record attempt.
Access to the event will only be granted when the driver presents their pass for entry on the day.
The Event Pass replaces the paper based 4 part form used in the 2019 attempt, simplifying registration and confirming the number of expected participants in advance.
The Event Pass can only be purchased from the Torquevolvo online shop (TorqueVolvo Shopify). Entry will not be granted to the site if the driver of the vehicle does not produce the pass upon request.
The address is: Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, Bath Lane, Lutterworth, Leicestershire. LE17 5QS
