Originally built in 1940 as RAF Thruxton, a World War II airfield and home to both the RAF and USAF, the site was used for troop-carrying aircraft and gliders during the D-Day landings.

In 1946 RAF Thruxton was decommissioned and then used for motorsport from 1950.

Motorcycling was the first motorsport to be staged at Thruxton Circuit, with four-wheeled racing commencing from 1952.

Thruxton is one of the fastest circuits on the calendar and one which has hosted events including British Superbikes, World Endurance motorcycles, European F2 cars and trucks.

The demands of the circuit range from the long, fast straights and flowing corners to tight, demanding Complex and Chicane sections.
