Track Infos from Wikipedia :

Thruxton Motorsport Centre is a motor-racing circuit located near the village of Thruxton in Hampshire, England which hosts motorsport events including British Touring Cars and Formula 3 racing. It is often referred to as the “Fastest Circuit in the UK” where drivers can reach speeds of over 300kph and has earnt the reputation of being a true driver’s track. To illustrate this, Damon Hill drove his Williams Formula One car around the circuit at an average speed of 147mph in 1993.

The site also houses the headquarters of the British Automobile Racing Club (BARC).

The site was originally constructed in 1942 as RAF Thruxton, a World War II airfield which was home to both the RAF and USAAF and was used for troop-carrying aircraft and gliders, including operations during the D-Day landings. Also, the paratroopers who took part in the successful Bruneval Raid (Operation Biting), in which German radar equipment was seized on the coast of France, took off from here.

The circuit, which follows the line of the airfield’s perimeter road, was established in 1968. From 1950–1965, motorbike races had taken place on the runways and perimeter road.

Owing to planning restrictions, the circuit can only run 12 days of motorsport each year. Currently, three are devoted to motorbike racing, with a weekend dedicated to the British Superbike Championship, Britain’s premier motorcycle racing category; with the third day being used for club racing.

The remaining days are devoted to car racing with weekends being used for the TOCA British Touring Car Championship, the British Formula 3 and British GT package and the Dunlop Great and British Festival, which features rounds of the British Truck Racing Championship, the International Truck Racing Challenge as well as the staples of the festival, including the Radical endurance races. Two separate one day meetings are run for amateur championships of the BARC, one of which is titled the Thruxton Classic, which features races for Classic Touring Cars, Classic Formula Ford 1600 and Formula Ford 2000. The remaining day is allocated to other organising clubs, such as the 750 Motor Club and Historic Sports Car Club. Owing to the relative infrequency of race meetings, Thruxton continues to be a popular part of the motorsport calendar.

The SIM Version :

This is a conversion of the rFactor Beta by lasercutter.
I would like to thank him for giving me permission to do the conversion.

He wanted me to stress that this is a BETA.
Although the track is still under construction it is still pretty good.

Currently the rFactor version is at 0.82 but this is only a conversion of 0.81.
When I get more time I will update this to 0.82.

There is a small issue with the AI leaving the small paddock area but it will not upset the game.

This will not interfere with any other versions of Thruxton.
