Thruxton will play host to the Classic Sports Car Club (CSCC) for the first time this weekend (Sat 13 - Sun14 August), with a broad spectrum of more than 320 cars revving up to go wheel-to-wheel around the fastest circuit in the country.
The CSCC will be bringing all nine of its race series to Hampshire for an action-packed outing, alongside the JEC XJ Restorations/Toyo Tires Jaguar Saloon and GT Championship. What's more, this is the first time in the club's 13-year history that all of its categories will compete at this most challenging of venues.
The highlight of the meeting is likely to be the crowd-pleasing Special Saloons and Modsports Series, with this weekend marking the first time these cars have raced at Thruxton since their 1980s heyday.
Saturday has more of a classic theme to the day, with the Adams & Page Swinging Sixties Series (for 1950s and '60s vehicles), the Classic K series for up-to-1966 FIA models and the Advantage Motorsport Future Classics series for 1970s and 1980s machinery, complete with mandatory pit-stop.
Sunday has more of a modern flavour, with the Gold Arts Magnificent Sevens sure to make full use of the track's legendary slipstreaming opportunities. The Modern Classics from the 1990s and New Millennium series for cars from 2000 to the present day will both be in action, in addition to the new-for-2016 Open series.
"We're all very much looking forward to the Classic Sports Car Club's visit," said Thruxton Group Managing Director Bill Coombs. "Huge grids are on the agenda with a tremendous variety of cars spanning some seven decades, while the warm and welcoming vibe inside the paddock and around the track will make for a real family-friendly event. We're sure it will quickly become a firm favourite on our calendar."
