1 Mins read

This year’s Thruxton Easter Revival event, 19/20 April, is set to make history as it hosts the opening rounds of the eagerly-anticipated new HSCC Super Touring Car Championship.

The high-speed circuit is preparing for the second running of its Revival event, and the highlight is sure to be the return of the Super Touring machinery made infamous in the Nineties in the British Touring Car Championship.

As well as some of the most iconic cars of the era, including the Honda Accord, Nissan Primera, Vauxhall Vectra, Renault Laguna and Ford Sierra RS500, some of the star drivers are set to commence battle, with double BTCC champion John Cleland and Patrick Watts amongst those expected to be on the grid.

“We are honoured that Thruxton will be hosting the very first rounds of the new Super Touring Car Championship,” said Bill Coombs, Thruxton Group Managing Director. “Lots of us grew up watching those epic BTCC battles on our TVs and so it’s great to see so many of those fantastic cars – not to mention a few of the illustrious drivers – recreating what was a memorable period in motor sport history.”
