  • Easter Revival early birds in with a shout of a Supercar thrill
  • Opportunity to lap Britain’s fastest circuit in a Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin or Audi R8
  • Just a £10 ticket could win a passenger ride in a £300k dream machine

The early bird catches the worm, they say, but those who get in quick with their ticket purchases for Thruxton’s popular Easter Revival meeting later this month will do much better than that – with a sextet of sensational Supercar rides up for grabs.

Following its enormously successful debut last year, the retro-flavoured Easter Revival outing – which will take place at Thruxton over the weekend of 19/20 April – needs no big sell, but organisers are in a generous mood, and the prize on offer for 12 lucky advance ticket-holders is a considerable step-up from your traditional chocolate bunny fare.

Everybody who buys an Easter Revival ticket between now and 11 April will be entered into a draw to win a two-lap passenger ride around the Hampshire circuit – the fastest in Britain – in one of Thruxton’s six standout Supercars during the lunch break of each race day.

The dream machines in question are the Ferrari 458 Spider, Audi R8, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo LP560 Spyder and the rare, 700bhp Lamborghini Aventador Roadster – a spectacular Supercar selection that would not look out-of-place outside Monte-Carlo’s glamorous, world-famous casino.

These ultra-modern, state-of-the-art Supercars bring theHistoric Sports Car Club-run Easter Revival right up to the present day, whilst respecting its theme in that all cars competing over the weekend were in their own time pioneering trend-setters.

These will range from the Formula 5000 five-litre monsters from the 1960s and ‘70s – in action at Thruxton for the first time in almost a decade – historic Formula Two machinery and the launch of the eagerly-anticipated new HSCC Super Touring Car Championship.

“Following the success of the inaugural Easter Revival last year and the way ticket sales are going for the 2014 edition, it doesn’t seem like fans need any additional incentive to spend Easter weekend at Thruxton, but we felt like giving our loyal supporters a little extra treat,” said Bill Coombs, Thruxton Group Managing Director.

“Everybody knows that Thruxton invariably generates some of the most enjoyable and edge-of-the-seat racing in Britain, but our Supercar experiences offer just as great a thrill and reinforce the circuit’s status as a multi-purpose venue. If you’ve never been in a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin or Audi R8 before, you really don’t know what you’re missing – so if you haven’t bought your Easter Revival ticket yet, I should get in quick!”

Tickets for the Thruxton Easter Revival are on sale either online via the official www.thruxtonracing.co.uk website or by calling the ticket office on 01264 882200.
