The structure, known in the paddock as a ‘motorhome’, had to be portable to allow transportation between events, but equally had to be unique and have outstanding visual impact to highlight the team’s new backer and stakeholder – Richard Branson’s Virgin Group – for their debut season.
The main structure was built from aluminium trussing crowned by a tensile system. Designed to host press conferences, receptions, and to provide a private retreat for VIP guests, the motorhome features two floors and accommodates between 60-100 guests.
The exterior was clad to offer an ideal surface for Virgin Racing’s sleek branding, while inside custom cassette staging created a modular floor over two levels linked by a complete custom staircase.
The structure provided a home from home for the Virgin team and more recently – complete with new branding – for the Marussia Virgin Racing team.
