Thruxton Circuit rolled back the years this past weekend (June 22/23) as a bumper trackside crowd was taken on a captivating trip down memory lane for the annual Thruxton Historic meeting.

One of the standout events on the UK motorsport calendar since it first debuted back in 2018 as part of the venues 50th Anniversary celebrations, the two-day spectacle once again brought together legendary machines and racers for an adrenaline rush like no other.

Undoubtedly one of the headline acts of the weekend was the prestigious two-part Jochen Rindt Trophy; which celebrated the best single-seater race cars – with up to 2-litre engines – from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

Second place in the opening contest was followed up by a hard-fought victory in the finale for Tom Smith, which secured him the overall bragging rights for this year.

Further single-seater thrills were on display courtesy of the Heroes of FF1600 Sprint Cup, which was battling for the coveted Ian Taylor Trophy. Small margins played their part across both races as Cameron Jackson triumphed in race one before Richard Tarling then came to the fore in race two.

The HSCC Guards Trophy Championship for Sports Racing & GT Cars prompted plenty of close competition with the team of Robert Tusting and Benjamin Tusting getting the better of Ross Hyett and Charlie Hyatt in their Lenham P69.

Andrew Hibbert was the driver to be in the weekend’s two Historic F3 for the Chris Moore Memorial Trophy, however he didn’t have things his own way as the Brabham BT18 was pushed to the limit in both contests, although he managed to hang on to triumph twice.

Over in the HSCC Historic Formula Ford 2000 Championship, Samuel Harrison was in a league of his own as he swept his way to pole position in qualifying and then followed up with two commanding lights-to-flag victories.

Italian flair was in full force courtesy of the Superformance Ferrari Club Classic Series, where Gary Culver, Nicky Paul-Barron and Tristan Simpson each claiming a win apiece in their respective prancing horse machines.

Slip-streaming thrills and spills were in full force when it came to the Mighty Minis Championship as Greg Jenkins powered his way to a brace of wins. Steve Rideout, Ben Butler and David Kirkpatrick also featured on the podium across the weekend.

Undoubtedly one of the biggest grids of the weekend came in the shape of the Adams & Page Swinging Sixties and new Thruxton Circuit owner Alex Thistlewayte marked his recent acquisition by comfortably winning the 40-minute race in his trusty Chevrolet Camaro.

Rounding out the weekend’s track action was a thrilling half-hour FISCAR which was dominated by Jonathan Abecassis, who claimed a commanding victory in his Austin Healey 100/4 by almost a full lap.
