A fried egg. That’s what I see when I look at a map of Thruxton. A kind of runny, amorphous blob. And the same goes for Goodwood and Castle Combe, two more UK race tracks that follow the course of old perimeter roads around former or active airfields. All three circuits have very similar characteristics – flowing bends that pour into each other, so you can’t quite say where one ends and the next begins.

But what Thruxton, Goodwood and Castle Combe really have in common is speed – and lots of it. They are fast circuits that present both car and driver with the sort of challenge you don’t get from more conventional tracks, and certainly not the kind that endlessly folds in on itself with one slow corner after another. From a car they require stability at three-figure speeds, and from a driver they demand old fashioned, big-gulp bravery. Confidence is key.
