Huge entry for Easter Truck Racing this weekend

Tuesday, March 22 2016

More than 20 trucks will be getting this weekend's (26-28 March) opening rounds of the British Truck Racing Championship off to a roaring start, with ten races scheduled for the five-tonne giants of motorsport.

The top Group A division is set to be headlined by a resumption of last season's titanic duel between multiple champions Mat Summerfield and Stuart Oliver. Summerfield will carry the coveted number one on his truck, having claimed his fourth successive title in 2015. Ten-time champion Oliver will be out for revenge, however the pair will also have to contend with crowd favourite David Jenkins, himself a former champion, and impressive youngster Ryan Smith. The latter will both return in their ex-European series MANs.

Group A will also feature West Kingsdown's reigning Group B champion Steve Powell, who moves up to the top class in a MAN truck. He's joined by near-neighbour Dave Smith from West Malling, who won the lower class title back in 2013 and had a brief crack at the top division two years ago. Powell's Group B title rival Luke Garrett also moves up, and other names set to compete include regulars Richard Collett, Steve Thomas and Holland's Cees Zandbergen.

Group B's entry includes two relatives of Group A runners. Steve Powell's brother John has briefly raced in the championship before, and returns for another attempt this weekend on board a Ford Cargo. Aiming to emulate his champion father, Michael Oliver will jump in a Scania truck to contest the class. Meanwhile brothers Frans and Rody Smit will be heading over from Germany for the weekend.
