This weekend (Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th April) sees the third annual Thruxton Easter Revival at the UK’s fastest race circuit just outside Andover.
The event is going from strength to strength and with more than 200 entries already across classes including Historic Touring Cars, Classic Formula 3, Historic Formula Ford 1600 and 2000, Formula Junior and Guards Trophy for GT cars, this years Easter Revival is sure to be another fantastic meeting.
One of the highlights will be the Derek Bell Trophy, which will pitch a feast of formidable, 5.0-litre Formula 5000 behemoths against a pack of lighter and nimbler Formula 2 rivals.
Tiff Needell Confirms Entry
Tiff will return to compete in Historic Formula Ford 1600 in his Lotus 69, after piloting the iconic single-seater to victory at the Easter Revival last year, triumphing by a scant six hundredths-of-a-second at the end of a titanic tussle to notch up his second Thruxton success in the car – more than four decades after his first!
Tiff said “Thruxton hasn’t really changed much since it first opened. It’s still the fastest track in Britain, it still separates the men from the boys and it still generates great racing – it has never been a place for the faint of heart! Every lap round Thruxton for me is great fun; its fast-and-flowing nature is a real hoot in my little Formula Ford”
“I achieved my first-ever race win at Thruxton back in 1972 and then won again last year, driving the same car – 42 years on”
