5 December 2016ChargePoint Services has installed electric vehicle charging facilities at Thruxton CIrcuit, the fastest racing circuit in the UK.

Thruxton Circuit wanted the latest EV charging technology in order to provide the best possible service to visitors, and as a result ChargePoint Services were chosen to install both a Rapid charger and twin Fast charger at the site near Andover, Hampshire, which is owned by Western Air (Thruxton) Ltd.

The chargers are operated by ChargePoint Services’ GeniePoint Network, they can be accessed via robust RFID card access or via smartphone App, and will be available for public access between 7am & 9.30pm, 7 days per week.  Situated just half a mile off the busy A303, they are ideally positioned for EV drivers to recharge whilst travelling between Hampshire and Devon & Cornwall.

Pat Blakeney, Group Operations Manager, Thruxton Circuit, said. “At Thruxton we are continually developing the venue to provide a diverse range of facilities to attract new visitors to the circuit.  We had very little experience in electric vehicle charging, but ChargePoint Services were extremely efficient and took us through the sales, planning and installation process clearly, competently and with minimal disruption.  In addition to passing drivers wishing to top up, we are confident that the installation of electric vehicle charging will encourage our current client list of manufacturers to use Thruxton as a venue for future events.”

Alex Bamberg, Managing Director, ChargePoint Services, said.  “The GeniePoint Network is expanding rapidly and we are very pleased to welcome the Thruxton Circuit onto our network.  One of our key focus is making the GeniePoint network the most reliable in the UK, and we have invested heavily in customer service to ensure that any driver arriving at one of our chargers are confident they can recharge quickly and easily in order to keep moving on their journey.”

ChargePoint Services invite constant feedback from drivers registered on the GeniePoint Network, part of this is to provide the option for drivers to suggest new locations for Rapid chargers to be installed around the country.

Thruxton Circuit was a site already highlighted by a number of drivers who can now benefit from another Rapid charger to keep them moving enabling them to recharge their electric vehicle quickly and easily.
