Convoy in the Park truckathon entertains at Donington

Sunday, July 22 2018

Donington Park's 'trucktastic' Convoy in the Park event entertained crowds with two days of scorching action headlined by British Truck Racing this weekend.

Six truck races provided the thrills and spills today (Sunday) following Saturday's quadruple-header, with plenty of overtaking, wheel banging, and powersliding on show throughout the British championship's two classes.

Fans were able to come and sample the action up close with a lunchtime grid walk, and there was a lively paddock area too, offering up plenty of chances for fans to see the trucks up close and meet the teams and drivers - there was even a makeshift music stage made from a lorry in this area to keep things in the theme!

Ryan Smith and Luke Garrett were the unquestionable stars of the weekend with the former showing imperious form in the Division 1 races, whilst the latter was unstoppable in Division 2.

This weekend was about much more than just motor racing though, with a huge off-track show filling the venue's infield. From live music to the truck displays, there was loads to see and do. There were even chances to get the adrenaline flowing with monster truck and drift rides!

A mammoth truck display formed the centrepiece of a super-sized trade show, put together with DVV Media and Truck & Driver magazine. An impressive array of traders attended and there was plenty to see and do for both those within the industry and more casual observers.

Donington Park's Classic Motorcycle Festival returns in just two weekend's time on 3-5 August, and the next major car event is the season finale of the British GT Championship on 22-23 September.
