One of the fastest motor racing circuits in the UK, Thruxton is a supreme test of high speed skill – especially where the art of slipstreaming is concerned. Consequently, it is both feared and revered. This book makes full use of the author’s unique collection of many previously unpublished color photos to follow the evolution of UK motorsport at the venue through the 1980s.
