Thruxton Motorsport Centre

Attraction Video

Experience the fastest race circuit in the UK. Thruxton Motorsport Centre has something for every petrolhead and is a must when looking for family days out in Hampshire.

Based along the A303 just outside Andover, Thruxton Motorsport Centre has been operating driving activities and race meetings since 1968. Both past and present Formula 1 drivers have raced at Thruxton on their way to the top of the motorsport ladder.

Drive on the main circuit in the latest supercars or feel like an F1 driver in a proper racing car. Head to the Low Grip Skid Pan and learn how to control a sliding car in both front and rear wheel drive cars. Bring the speed right down on the 4×4 Off-Road Track and push a Land Rover to the limits. Race wheel to wheel at the Kart Centre in 60mph race karts on five different circuit combinations.

If you’d rather watch the professionals battle it out on track, Thruxton has a number of high profile race meetings including the British Touring Car Championship, British Superbikes and British Trucks. Come and see the stars of these championships attempt to tame the legendary fast sweeping corners at Thruxton.
