As with many other courses in the UK, Thruxton was constructed on a World War II airfield. A racetrack was built around the WWII airport in 1950, using both the roads and the runways around it.
This track is one of the country's fastest, with famous high-speed curves and a reputation for testing even the most experienced of race car drivers. It’s one of the longest circuits in the UK, with each loop clocking in at 2.4 miles.
It's one of the finest circuits to drive because of the three hard turns and new chicane on the reconstructed course, which replaces the previous runways with perimeter roads.
Until 1952, only motorcyclists competed on the track, but that changed and cars are now regular.
In order to provide a mixture of fun, Thruxton has recently built a brand new 1100-meter outdoor state-of-the-art kart track. At the Thruxton Motorsport Centre, 4x4 enthusiasts may test their skills on muddy terrain, steep inclines, chasms, and even a see-saw with the help of a fleet of modern Land Rover Discoveries, too
