Motor Racing at Thruxton in the 1980s makes full use of the author’s unique collection of many previously unpublished colour photos to follow the evolution of UK motorsport at Thruxton through the 1970s. During this time the venue featured in the early careers of many Formula One drivers, and amongst others the book records the performances of such luminaries as Ronnie Peterson, Graham Hill, Keke Rosberg, Alan Jones, and David Purley.

Thruxton has been described as “the UK’s Speedbowl.” The circuit is home to the prestigious British Automobile Racing Club, and during the period covered by this book the author was editor of the club’s magazine. As a result, he was able to get behind the scenes at many of the events, including F2, British Touring Cars, Aurora AFX F1, and club races.

In the 1970s Thruxton featured many famous drivers, including Ronnie Peterson, Graham Hill, Keke Rosberg, Alan Jones, and David Purley. The circuit was also popular with many club racing drivers, with the results almost always being extremely close – whatever the class.
Featuring many previously unpublished photographs from the author’s personal collection, this is an insightful account of racing at one of the fastest circuits in the UK.
