During some of the warmest weather so far, Thruxton Circuit hosted their 50th Anniversary celebrations at the weekend and invited Unity Transport and Unity Volunteering to participate.

Two newly rebranded buses and an accessible car were parked up at the event with the buses being used throughout the programme to provide circuit rides for fee paying customers.

A number of Unity volunteer drivers enjoyed the opportunity to drive the circuit to the delight of customers who experienced bumping over the rumble strips on the track!

Customers were queued up for the experience and in the short time available on both Saturday and Sunday, Unity was able to provide 12 circuit rides, generating over £700 income for the charity.

Volunteer driver Graham said “It was a thoroughly good day enjoyed by volunteers and the public. Unity should definitely do it again.”
