Thruxton was built in 1941 as an airbase for the RAF and USAF. It was used during World War II for gliders and played a large part in carrying troops for the D-Day landings. The airforce left Thruxton in 1946 and for a couple of years it sat doing nothing until 1950 when the circuit was born and motorsport came to Thruxton in the form of motorbikes and then in 1952 motor racing started on the old airfield. In 1968 Thruxton became the track we know today and followed the lines of the perimeter road. With the addition of a chicane and three other corners we see the birth of one of Englands fastest racing circuits.
