Truck Racing and Fireworks set to stun crowds this weekend

Monday, October 21 2013

Brands Hatch is set to host a major fireworks display on 3 November, at the end of a family-themed event headlined by the final round of the 2013 British Truck Racing Championship.

Following a hugely successful event in 2012, the British Truck Racing Championship's second visit of the year to Brands Hatch will once again coincide with Guy Fawkes' weekend celebrations. A spectacular firework display will take place after dark on the evening of 3 November, following a day of entertainment for all of the family. Children aged 12 and under will enjoy free entry all weekend.

Throughout the day there will be fun attractions all around the circuit, including the return of the Red Dragon Monster Truck offering passenger rides, which proved to be highly popular at June's American SpeedFest event at the circuit. There will be a large covered circus tent where children of all ages will have a chance to participate in an array of activities, as well as a chance to see stilt walkers, hula hoopists and unicyclists performing throughout the day. The Brands Hatch funfair and children's adventure playground will also be open, whilst there will be a display of up to 100 showtrucks, which will parade around the track during the firework display.

On track, the British Truck Racing Championship season finale is likely to see two champions crowned on the Indy circuit. In Division 1 Matt Summerfield and David Jenkins will be resuming their rivalry, whilst local driver Dave Smith aims to repeat his overall wins from April as he fights to retain his Division 2 crown. A reverse-grid format has provided scintillating action already this year and is sure to provide a late season highlight for spectators!

In addition there will be support races provided by the Pickup Trucks and Legends series, plus the Quaife Intermarque League and Quaife Motorsport News Saloons and Cannons Tin Tops championships. All four provide some of the UK's best motorsport action, and the perfect prelude to Sunday's firework display!

Tickets for the Truck Racing and Fireworks event at Brands Hatch on 3 November are available from £18, with free entry for children aged 12 and under. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
