50 days to go until truck racers blast into Brands Hatch

Friday, February 03 2017

There are just 50 days to go until the first highlight event of 2017 at Brands Hatch, when the new British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC) season roars into life at the Kent circuit on 25/26 March, headlining a weekend of entertainment for all ages. Discounted advance tickets are already on sale for this event, and under-13s go free.

With spring just around the corner, the BTRC teams are putting the finishing touches to their rigs in time for the curtain-raiser at Brands Hatch, with new drivers expected to join old favourites. They'll all be put through their paces in March, with a minimum of eight races for the 1000-horsepower brutes.

The race is on for the 2017 title, with ten-time champion Stuart Oliver, four-time champion Mat Summerfield, and former title-winners David Jenkins and Ryan Smith, the reigning champion, all expected to be in the mix. With reverse-grids, powerslides aplenty and drivers unafraid to get stuck into the action, there will be plenty to cheer on throughout the weekend.

The event also includes a support programme packed with high-octane entertainment, including the hugely-popular Legends Cars, pocket-sized replicas of American hot-rods. Expect fast and furious NASCAR-style racing from these, and the Pickup Trucks championship, which is also on the bill, with further supports to be confirmed shortly.

Truck Racing events at Brands Hatch are renowned for featuring a wealth of off-track entertainment for all of the family, and this March's event won't disappoint. Already confirmed are a huge display of show trucks, which will parade the track on main raceday Sunday, as well as the highly-popular Red Dragon Monster Truck, which is equipped to carry up to ten passengers as it lays waste to all obstacles in its path.

The event will also feature a funfair, free children's adventure playground and go-karting, with further attractions set to be announced in the coming weeks.

Tickets for Truck Racing at Brands Hatch are available in advance from £19, or £12 to 13-15 year-olds, with free entry for under-13s. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
