Explosive line-up of fun at Brands Hatch Truck Racing & Fireworks

Friday, October 25 2019

Brands Hatch's traditional end-of-season British Truck Racing & Fireworks returns on Sunday 3 November, featuring plenty of jaw-dropping race action and an incredible pyrotechnical display plus lorry loads of fun for all of the family off track too!

The Kent venue's annual event is one of the biggest and best family fixtures in the calendar, with a full day of racing culminating in a track parade of more than 100 pristine show trucks with lights ablaze and horns sounding. A phenomenal 'big bang' fireworks display - one of the biggest in the county - will then light up the sky, bringing the 2019 season to a close.

Truck racing tops the bill in a busy race programme featuring the Junior Saloon Car Championship, scaled-down hot-rod style Legends and Pick-up Trucks. The five-tonne, 1000hp behemoths will thunder their way round the undulating Indy circuit and have to be seen to be believed with the ability to accelerate quicker than a Porsche 911. With championship titles up for grabs, expect to see plenty of fierce competition, with trucks often seen sliding their way through corners.

The fun continues away from the track too with a heated big top tent adding to the carnival atmosphere, offering free circus skill performances from Sam Goodburn and magician and illusionist Andrew Van Buren. Once the day's track action comes to a close, an Ed Sheeran tribute act will entertain the crowds performing some of the act's best-known hits into the evening.

Dozens of eye-catching show trucks will line the venue for visitors to browse, and other free attractions include a synthetic ice rink, circus skills workshops and the Brands Hatch adventure playground. The kids' Fun Zone offers high-rise thrills with a climbing wall, giant inflatable slide, mini diggers and funfair.

Visitors also have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a big rig themselves with truck driving experiences on a closed-off section of the Grand Prix loop, or enjoy a sideways tyre-screeching drift ride in a Caterham. Children as young as 11 can also sample life behind the wheel of a dual-controlled MINI One with our YoungDrive! early driving lessons on the Grand Prix loop.

British Truck Racing & Fireworks brings a huge line-up of fun to Brands Hatch with adult tickets available for £20 when booked in advance (before midday Thursday 31 October). Children under 13 always go free at Brands Hatch, plus there is a reduced rate for teens. For more information and to book, click here or call 0843 453 9000.
