THRUXTON 08-09 MAY

May 8 @ 8:00 am - May 9 @ 6:30 pm

With the highest average speed of any circuit visited by the BTCC, Thruxton in Hampshire undoubtedly provides some of the biggest thrills and spills in motor sport. Thruxton was originally a wartime airfield. Commissioned in 1941, the airfield was host to both the RAF and USAF and played a major part in the D-Day landings as a base for troop-carrying aircraft and gliders.

BTCC title sponsor Dunlop brings a special extra-hard compound of its Sport Maxx tyre to cope with the relentless high-speed corners, and even with this precaution tyre management is always essential at Thruxton.

In the modern era, Thruxton has been a happy hunting ground for the Honda marque, with its cars winning ten out of the 15 races there between 2011 and 2015.

Corners:11
Circuit length:2.36 miles
First BTCC Race:1968
