A flagship hospitality centre with steelwork designed, manufactured and supplied by REIDsteel has officially opened at the iconic Thruxton Motorsports Circuit.

Motor racing legends Nigel Mansell and Murray Walker performed the honours during Thruxton’s 50th anniversary celebrations over a weekend in early June.

The £1.5m hospitality centre at Andover in Hampshire includes a restaurant, bar, exhibition gallery, function rooms, hospitality suites, catering facilities, viewing terraces and a balcony.

Its innovative design also includes a grand atrium and entrance lobby to reflect the dynamism of motorsport and Thruxton’s rich heritage.

The project architect was the Chapman Partnership, which specialises in the motorsport and automotive, leisure and entertainment industries.
