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 motorsport. 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.

Goodyear’s hard compound tyre makes its appearance at the Hampshire venue due to 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 regular BTCC frontrunner Josh Cook having proven his prowess around the 2.37-mile circuit in 2021 when he equalled the most wins of any driver around the Hampshire speedbowl, with seven victories. Another accolade honoured at the circuit just last year saw series stalwart Jason Plato celebrate his 600th BTCC race during the opener.

The 2022 campaign sees the BTCC visit Thruxton on two occasions, with the first in late May  (28/29) before returning three months later, over the August Bank Holiday (27/28 August).
