THRUX­TON: CLAS­SIC SPORTS CAR CLUB

Motor Sport News - - Where To Go This Season - RL

The Clas­sic Sports Car Club has been run­ning some of the finest na­tional race meet­ings go­ing for a few years now, but one will be par­tic­u­larly spe­cial next sea­son.

Thrux­ton is one of the best, but sadly due to strict noise re­stric­tions, lesser-used rac­ing cir­cuits in the UK. It can be tough for clubs to get a date at the Hamp­shire speed­bowl, which is known as be­ing the fastest track in the coun­try.

This Au­gust the CSCC has its first ever stand­alone date there, and it should be pretty spec­tac­u­lar to wit­ness first-hand.

CSCC meet­ings feel spe­cial due to the blend of the con­tem­po­rary and his­toric ma­chin­ery they at­tract. One race can stage mod­ern tin-tops such as Citroen Saxos and BMW M3s, then the next some bel­low­ing 1960s clas­sics.

Per­haps the high­light will be the re­turn of Spe­cial Sa­loons and Mod­sports to the venue. Th­ese highly mod­i­fied ma­chines are al­ways spec­tac­u­lar to watch and hear, and the fast sweeps of Thrux­ton should be a per­fect stage.

Au­gust 13/14
