Following the tremendous success of the Donington Historic Festival, our next event is only one month away now – the Thruxton Historic on June 11th & 12th. Not only is Thruxton the fastest circuit in the UK, it must also be the most charming and relaxed venue, nestling deep in the Hampshire countryside and yet easily accessible to London and the Midlands.
The Thruxton Historic has always boasted a superb line-up of historic racing which this year will be complimented by a new Heritage Aviation feature and car club displays. The Land Rover Legends show will also be taking place over the weekend.
Motor Racing Legends will be attending in force – with grids for the Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Trophy & Stirling Moss Trophy; Pre ’63 GT; Historic Touring Car Challenge with Tony Dron Trophy; Jaguar Classic Challenge; and the second stand-alone grid of the season for U2TC with Sixties Touring Car Challenge.
Supporting Motor Racing Legends will be three grids from Julius Thurgood’s Historic Racing Drivers Club; the Jochen Rindt Trophy for under 2 litre single seaters including Formula Atlantic, Formula Ford, Formula 3 and Formula 2 cars of the 60s, 70s and early 80s; and the MG Car Club Midget and Sprite Challenge.
Thruxton Historic, now well established in its fifth year, features twelve races on the 2.35 mile circuit, renowned as being one of the fastest in the country. Located near Andover just off the A303 it’s a short journey from most southerly locations in the UK. Thruxton is only an hour from the south-west corner of the M25 and just over two hours from most locations in the Midlands. If you are not familiar with the fast-flowing circuit, see the You Tube link below and driver a lap with Thruxton expert Tiff Needell.
Look to the skies on both Saturday and Sunday for a dramatic flypast from the iconic Spitfire from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight part of the new Heritage Aviation Feature at Thruxton Historic. On the ground, a remarkable pair of 1960s helicopters from the Historic Army Aircraft Flight will in the paddock for spectators to view close up – the Augusta Bell Sioux and the Westland Scout. And on top of all that there is a vintage aircraft fly-in each day, where the public will be able to walk around a spectacular static aircraft display right next to the race paddock. Visitors can expect to see historic aircraft such as the Tiger Moth, Auster and Piper Cub and will have the opportunity to get up close and meet the pilots.
