Fully Customisable Experience
The Hub is flexible and can be used in a variety of ways; rent some of the tools or tunnels, hire space for your R&D team or just a central place for meetings. Whatever your requirements the hub can help.
Private and Impartial
It is essential that the tools are impartial and private. All effort has been made to ensure that you get to use the facilities in this manner. The tools are run by impartial staff or can be operated by yourselves.
As the facilities and tunnels are specifically designed for sport, it has helped us keep costs to a minimum, allowing our rates to the hub members to be reduced significantly.
The hub is located just outside the Silverstone Circuit, within Silverstone Park. It has excellent transport links.
