•    New Thruxton Motorsport Celebration event announced for 1-2 June 2019


•    Thruxton teams up with Historic Promotions for a weekend of nostalgic racing, exhibitions and entertainment


•    Huge success of 50th Anniversary celebrations inspires new annual extravaganza





Summers are about to get louder, faster and even more exciting at Thruxton Circuit with the launch of a fantastic new event on 1-2 June 2019 celebrating all things motorsport and automotive.



In a year of fabulous festivities to mark the venue’s Golden Jubilee, which was crowned by June's 50th Anniversary Celebration centrepiece, the event’s success and the immensely positive feedback from visitors has been the driving force behind 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 glorious machinery from across the decades courtesy of Historic Promotions.



Visitors will also be able to admire exquisite exhibitions from a number of attending car clubs and absorb the sights, sounds and smells of high-octane motorsport around the UK’s fastest motor racing circuit.



With a host of activities taking place both on and off track, including kids’ activities, Supercar Displays, Skid-Pan demonstrations and much more, the Thruxton Motorsport Celebration will be the perfect summer day out for the whole family.  



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.



Duncan Wiltshire, Chairman of Historic Promotions, added
: “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.



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.”



In addition to the Thruxton Motorsport Celebration, the venue is already gearing up for a packed programme of motorsport action in 2019.



Highlights include two rounds of the immensely popular British Touring Car Championship, the first taking place on 18-19 May before the series returns on 17-18 August 2019 for more world famous wheel-to-wheel action.



The adrenaline-pumping British Superbike Championship will also take up its traditional summer spot with three days of full throttle two-wheel racing taking place on 2-4 August 2019.
