Easter Revival Kick-Starts Action At Thruxton

As befits the fastest circuit in the country, Thruxton is speeding at full-throttle towards the 2014 motor racing campaign – and fans of all disciplines of the sport will be well catered-for by the Hampshire venue’s spectacular season schedule.

The action will rev into life in fine style with the retro-flavoured Easter Revival meeting in 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 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.

“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.
