The Open Road offers a range of services to the corporate market.


If you are trying to arrange a corporate or team building event then we are ideally placed to help.
  1. Situated in the heart of the British Motor Industry, just south of Coventry, only 10 miles from the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon and 15 miles from the Coventry Transport Museum.
  2. Centrally located in Shakespeare Country and within easy reach of The Cotswolds, one of the most beautiful parts of the country.
  3. Wide range of classic British, Austin Healey, Jaguar, MG and Triumph cars and American muscle cars - Corvette and Ford Mustangs.
  4. Our unrivalled knowledge of the area enables us to set bespoke tours or competitive treasure hunts to suit any corporate theme.
  5. Together with a local Partner Company we are able to arrange full accommodation and conference facilities to meet all requirements.
  6. If you don't want to spend a full day driving a classic car then, we can arrange a number of options for splitting the day.
    • We could include a visit to the Heritage Moor Centre at Gaydon and maybe take in their Land Rover Experience.
    • Together with a local Kart track we can put together a fantastic driving day where your clients will drive classic cars for half the day and go karts for the other half.
    • Or if you fancy combining it with a different 'sport' then we can arrange clay pigeon shooting or archery at a one of a number of local venues.
  7. We can provide vouchers for use as sales or performance incentives or rewards. As our cars are of different values it is easy to produce a step based incentive system offering use of a better car, the better they perform. Give your top performing sales staff use of our E-Type for a weekend or week.


Our Corporate Event experience isn't restricted to driving events.  Over the years, our cars have been used for numerous corporate displays, some promoting charities, some promoting businesses:


  • The Open Road has set the routes for the Stratford Festival of Motoring since its inauguration in 2013, producing a route book with two routes for each event. We have also provided advice and guidance to the organisers of the Festival and manned the start of the Festival for 2013, 2014 and 2015

N.B. As the paint on some of our cars is not as hard wearing as the two pack paint on modern cars we regret that we will not allow corporate clients to attach any stick on sponsor signs to the cars.  


If required we can have these made up on magnetic backing or we can prepare 'rally' type plaques which are normally fixed to the front bumpers and can also be given as souvenirs.
