Thruxton Motorsport Celebration

from £25.00
Saturday 1 June 2019 - Sunday 2 June 2019

Following the success of our 50th Anniversary Celebration, 2019 see's a new annual two-day event called the Thruxton Motorsport Celebration. A mouth-watering array of sensational sportscars, flame-spitting saloons and evocative single-seaters will thrill the crowds with no fewer than 15 races on the bill as the past comes back to life at the fastest circuit in the country.

Off-track, there will be no shortage of activities for spectators to enjoy. ‘Battle of Britain’ flypasts on both days will pique the interest of aviation fanatics, featuring a Hawker Hurricane and the legendary Douglas C-47 Dakota. Not forgetting, of course, Thruxton’s impressive supercar display, circuit coach rides, sideways skid pan experiences and – for the more adventurous – axe-throwing, all topped off by local classic rock tribute band ‘The Cellarats’ performing live on the Saturday evening. Plus, local BSB star Tommy Bridewell (Devizes) will make an appearance on his Oxford Racing Ducati in what is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleasing run. Not only that, but one of the most successful Formula 5000 cars ever produced – the thunderous V8 Lola T332 – will rewind the clock as it returns to the circuit along with a Lola T70. A 1989 Formula 3000 Reynard will add to the ‘memory lane’ appeal.

A number of car clubs from across the UK are also set to attend, from the Porsche Club GB to the MX-5 Owners Club – celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2019 – the Alfa Romeo Owners Club, Lotus Seven Club, Overton Classic Revival and GT40 Enthusiasts Club.
