How is it nearly that time of year again already? While we’ve had fewer Sunday Services this year due to a broader mix of events, 2022 has been a busy one and come and gone in a flash.
But we couldn’t let the year end without one more. Which is why we’re very excited to be returning to Thruxton again following the popular first event we ran with them in 2019, in partnership with our good friends at Mission Motorsport.
Thruxton will be throwing open the doors to their Motorsport Centre, serving up hot brews and breakfast baps, so come hungry. Mission Motorsport will be running the skid pan for the morning, where you can take your own car for a spin (quite literally) or hire either an MX-5 or F-Type from their fleet.
No matter what you own, be it front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive or all four, a skid pan is undoubtedly the perfect place to learn car control in slow motion. Want to provoke some lift-off oversteer in your hot hatch or flick out the back end of your MX-5? This is where you do it. Plus all of the money raised will go towards helping the MM team do what they do best.
The skid pan will be run in 30-minute sessions with six cars per group, costing £25 per car. Book your space here and be quick, as they won’t hang around. Ensure that you’re at the skid pan at least 15-minutes before your allocated session for a briefing and to keep the groups moving on time.
There will also be a rare opportunity to walk the track at 11:00, where you can walk the full 2.4 mile circuit to warm up. Book your spot here for £5. All proceeds raised from the event will help Mission Motorsport, The Forces’ Motorsport Charity help the wounded, injured or sick Armed Forces community on a journey of recovery.
