After getting Croft Circuit yesterday, now we get another British race track for the rFactor 2 Q4 update. Thruxton Motorsports Centre is coming. Fully Laser Scanned.
This reveal marks the third racing circuit to be added to this content drop. Studio 397 seems to be really stepping up the pace right now.
The Track ItselfThruxton is one of these British circuits. You know the ones. The ones based on the premises of a former Royal Fair Force airfield.
In the 50s was when the first motorsports activities began to appear at Thruxton. First, there were only motorcycles. These circuit configurations, running until 1964, used part of the runways and part of the perimeter roads.
1968 was when Thruxton, as we know it today, was first raced at. In those days, it hosted Formula Two and the FIM Endurance World Championship.
More racing organisers piled upon the premises in the 70s, including Formula 5000, British F3 and the BTCC. The BTCC has been hosted on the circuit since 1979, Thruxton, therefore, surviving multiple generations of British touring car regulations.
