Renowned transport specialist opens new car and bike storage facility close to Silverstone
Circuit2Circuit provides a comprehensive range of covered car transport delivered with exceptional service. Transporting any vehicle, anywhere, Circuit2Circuit works with a number of Blue Chip companies and prominent individuals, delivering vehicles all over the globe. With a proven background in motor sport within Formula 1, BTCC and beyond they can provide the best cost-effective solution and the highest calibre drivers in the industry.
The resources on offer by Circuit2Circuit are pretty comprehensive, from individual race and motor shuttles to race trailers that can move multiple vehicles at once — perfect for your whole team! The latest addition to the fleet is a five-car transporter, offering the ultimate service in multi-car logistics. Each and every method of transport is completely covered, ensuring your car is delivered discreetly and securely, and is not at risk by any elements such as the weather or stone chips during the journey.
To complement the transportation service offered by Circuit2Circuit, and to respond to many customer requests, the company has introduced a bespoke storage facility in 2013 for classic, prestige and race vehicles: it’s called Silverstone Classic and Race Car Storage.
The storage facility is based in rural Northamptonshire in a secure and discreet location close to Silverstone circuit and junction 15a of the Ml. It has been specially tailored to suit customer’s individual requirements and as such, Silverstone Classic and Race Car Storage can offer a number of different storage options.
Your car will be kept in a dry, clean and fully alarmed secure environment. While your car is being stored in this purpose-built facility you can choose from a number of maintenance programmes. And of course, vehicles can be collected and delivered back to your premises via the expertise of Circuit2Circuit if desired.
Motorcycles are also welcomed and a couple of notable bikes currently in storage include a 1983 Yamaha RD125LC with only 1057 miles on the clock and a 1984 Honda CBX 750FE that’s logged up a mere 19,000 miles. Both bikes are in excellent condition having been stored in a dehumidified environment, ensuring they are kept free of moisture. Both still have their original fittings including exhausts thanks to being kept in this environment.
Company boss Leigh Pettifer explains how Silverstone Classic and Race Car Storage started: “With the car transportation service we have been offering for the past 12 years, we are often asked to store vehicles in a secure facility. We ensure every car is treated with the same professionalism at all times by all our experienced staff and it is this ethos that has given us such an enviable reputation.”
It is this reputation that has race teams, sponsors and marketing companies ensuring that Circuit2Circuit remains at the forefront of the industry. Sir Jackie Stewart OBE recently said how the company “carries out its business in a very professional fashion”. High praise indeed!
