Retro-themed extravaganza to take fans back in time at the Thruxton Historic

Thruxton Circuit will reverberate to the sounds of historic and classic motor racing machines this weekend (August 15/16) as it takes a spirited trip down memory lane for the eagerly anticipated ‘Thruxton Historic’ meeting.

Originally scheduled to take place on June 6/7 before the coronavirus pandemic caused calendars to be revised, the two-day spectacle will welcome a limited number of spectators trackside for the first time since lockdown restrictions were eased.

Extensive measures to ensure the health and wellbeing of all staff and visitors will be in place throughout the venue, including the implementation of strict social distancing and other preventative measures such as clear signage, hand sanitiser stations and enhanced cleaning products.

Aiming to build on the success of last year’s Motorsport Celebration, Thruxton Historic will feature a mouth-watering array of sensational sportscars, flame-spitting saloons and evocative racing cars going wheel-to-wheel around the fastest track in the UK.

Confirmed to take centre stage over the course of the weekend include bumpers grids from the Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Trophy, Stirling Moss Trophy, HRDC Classic Alfa Challenge, Pre ’63 GT, Historic Touring Car Challenge and the GT & Sports Car Cup – to name but a few.

In addition to the on-track entertainment, those in attendance will be able to cast their eye over a number of stunning classic car displays, situated around the picturesque Hampshire venue.
