Thruxton


Full

Constructed as RAF Thruxton in 1942, which was home to both the RAF and United States Army Air Force, the original circuit was created in 1968, after earlier in the decade motorbike races had taken place using the runways and perimeter roads.

The circuit was not required beyond the end of World War II and in 1946 it was sold, with motorcycle racing beginning at the circuit four years later.

It wasn’t until 1968 that the full perimeter circuit was utilised, in a layout which has remained unchanged to the present day, making it the circuit in the UK with the longest continuous configuration in use.

The British Saloon Car Championship visited that same year for the first time and has been back every year since. Due to local planning restrictions, the circuit can only be used for 12 racing days per year.

Known for being a high-speed challenge, the circuit is a favourite amongst racing drivers for its fast and flowing turns.
