Our pristine 40,000 sq ft building, situated west of London, is the UK’s leading car storage facility.

STORAGE

The finest commercial storage facility

We believe  that cars should not be crammed, bumper to bumper, in dusty old barns, but sadly this is how many great cars are stored. Our pristine 40,000 sq ft facility features dedicated bays for each car, along with spacious roadways for safe and easy manoeuvring.

* Cars are permanently plugged into their battery chargers/conditioners

* Tyres are reset to the correct storage pressure

* Prior to departure tyre pressures are reset and fluid levels checked

* Optional 6-weekly warm-ups

WHO ARE WE

The team at V Management

Chris Bucknall
CEO

Chris started organising car tours in 1999 as a part-time passion project, which he juggled with his career as a screenwriter. The idea for V Management was born in 2014 with the aim of providing a 360 degree service to discerning owners, to include 5-star storage and management along with unique motoring tours and events. Chris’ meticulous eye for detail and single-minded determination to deliver at the very highest level are reflected in everything V Management does.

Ben Hadfield
Senior Car Manager

Ben’s lifelong love of cars led him to setup his own bodyshop business, restoring the paintwork and wheels of the finest cars. He then spent 5 years helping to manage Palmersport’s trackday operations, before a move south coincided with the launch of V Management. Ben’s fastidious nature and extensive automotive experience are a perfect fit for V, and he now runs the storage, management and logistics side of our operations.

Sara Brunell
Event Manager

Sara’s career began at Christie’s auction house in London where she worked for 9 years before moving into the luxury travel industry with ski company Scott Dunn, running their operations in the South of France and the French Alps, where she has lived since 1998. After working on one of Chris’ tours each June for several years, she joined V Management full time early in 2019, bringing huge experience to the crucial role of managing all aspects of our hotels, restaurants, race circuits and other venues related to our events in the UK and around the world.

Harriet Evans
Event Manager

Harriet started her career in hospitality at Fontwell Park Racecourse, a role which combined her love of both horses and events. She then spent five years at Goodwood Motor Circuit managing a wide range of events including Veloce, V Management’s annual charity track day. When a position became available at V in 2019, no time was wasted in recruiting Harriet to join our fantastic team, and she now manages our extensive calendar of tours, trackdays and bespoke private events.

Aman Kang
Event Coordinator

Aman gained an NVQ in business administration while working for the London Borough of Richmond, before moving to Berkshire where she worked for 10 years for a pharmaceutical company. Having joined the busy events team in early 2019, Aman now handles the increasingly complex administration of all our events with calm authority.

Matt Hall
Storage Manager

With a background in engineering and passion for all things automotive, Matt is ideally suited to his role at V, keeping order in our 40,000 sq ft warehouse and looking after the 160 cars in our care.

Derek Bell, MBE
Consultant

Derek is a legend of sports car racing and is almost as busy today as he was at the height of his racing career. The 5-times Le Mans winner and double World Sports Car Champion is at all the greatest events in the motoring calendar, but still finds time to host V Management tours and track days.

Tony Willis
Consultant

Tony is Ferrari’s North Europe Classiche consultant and owner of the Maranello Concessionaires Archive. His knowledge of classic Ferraris is second to none, and he assists V Management on technical issues and specialist Ferrari matters.
