Thruxton Easter Revival Kick-Starts Action-Packed Season

Thruxton Easter Revival Classic car racingAs befits the fastest circuit in the country, Thruxton is speeding at full-throttle towards the 2014 motor racing campaign with classic car action on track.

Thruxton is beloved by competitors and spectators alike for its challenging, fearsomely fast layout. The action will rev into life in fine style with the retro-flavoured Easter Revival meeting on 19 & 20 April.

Car racing has been a fixture at Thruxton for more than six decades, and the Historic Sports Car Club-run Easter Revival resurrects many of the classic racing sights, smells and sounds of motor sport in years gone-by, with a particular focus on Formula 2 and, this year, the inaugural Super Touring Car Championship.

The modern-day Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) roars into the circuit just two weeks later, with the following month welcoming the power and thunder of the British Truck Racing Championship, whilst two-wheeled fans will be focussing their attention on the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship, which calls in on the first weekend in August.

British F3 is next up a fortnight later, before the BARC and North Gloucester Motorbike race meetings wrap proceedings up in the autumn.

“Every year, the off-season seems to get shorter and shorter, and all of us here are more than ready to get this new season underway!” said Bill Coombs, Thruxton Group Managing Director. “We’ve got a busy and exciting schedule of events on the calendar, to appeal to aficionados across the entire motor sport spectrum, be they fans of cars, bikes or trucks – or even all three!

“Our second Easter Revival is already shaping up to be a fantastic weekend, with some legendary cars and extremely talented drivers on the entry list, and to have seven former champions on the grid when the BTCC rolls into town will make for a tremendous show.
