Circuit Biography

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.
