Thruxton Circuit has announced a new event on 1st and 2nd of June 2019 celebrating all things motorsport and automotive at the Hampshire venue. In a year of festivities to mark the venue’s Golden Jubilee, which was crowned by June's 50th Anniversary Celebration, the event’s success and the positive feedback from visitors has been the driving force behind now making the Thruxton Motorsport Celebration an annual highlight of its schedule.
Over two days visitors will be treated to a wealth of on-track racing action with machinery from across the decades courtesy of Historic Promotions. Visitors will also be able to admire exhibitions from a number of attending car clubs and absorb the sights, sounds and smells of quality motorsport around the UK’s fastest motor racing circuit, whose race control building bears HistoricRacingNews.com livery.
Bill Coombs, Thruxton Group Managing Director, commented: “It’s been a year to remember for Thruxton Circuit with a host of immensely popular events to mark our Golden Jubilee prompting overwhelmingly positive feedback from visitors. It is by reminiscing about our illustrious history that we became inspired for the future with the launch of the Thruxton Motorsport Celebration.
“A high-octane weekend of exhilarating sights and sounds and thrilling racing action, whether you’re a petrolhead or not, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. We’re certain the Thruxton Motorsport Celebration will become a huge regional summer highlight for years to come.”
“The 2018 Thruxton 50th Anniversary Celebration weekend was a huge success and we were delighted to be taking part with our historic grids from Motor Racing Legends,” said Duncan Wiltshire, Chairman of Historic Promotions.
“Historic Promotions is now very much looking forward to working with Thruxton to launch and develop its exciting new Thruxton Motorsport Celebration, which is certain to be a highlight of the summer schedule with even better racing, more clubs, and a variety of other attractions for all the family. We’re aiming to bring all our experience and enthusiasm to this exciting new event at one of the most important and historic circuits in the country.”
