The racecourse venue, which has views over 600 acres of downland, grew by the same amount in the period April 2010- April 2011.

In the last year, dealership events, vehicle launches - including the Aston Martin V8 Vantage- and conferences have taken place at Epsom, which hosts the Investec Derby annually.

With a maximum capacity up to 800, The Queen’s Stand and Duchess’s Stand offer a vista over the London skyline. Other corporate clients at Epsom include Canon, National Counties Building Society, Wilmott Dixon and Unilever.

Phil White, sales director for Epsom Downs Racecourse, said: "Through our heritage of prestigious sporting events, Epsom Downs has come to embody the epitome of British horseracing.

"We have seen this notoriety for quintessential quality transfer into our meetings and events offerings, and are hearing more and more how this is a key factor for automotive clients who want to ally their products with our globally recognised brand."
