Get behind the wheel at Convoy in the Park!

Wednesday, July 17 2019

Visitors to Convoy in the Park on 10-11 August will be able to get behind the wheel of a truck themselves, thanks to two driving experiences on offer during the event.

The Taylor's Transport HGV training experience will be in operation again, allowing visitors to drive one of their trucks complete with trailer around a special course throughout the weekend. In exchange for a small charitable donation, guests will be able to drive one of two vehicles alongside a qualified instructor, and be taught how to drive and reverse the truck around a short course. Visitors can register for this activity while at the event!

For those wanting to experience trucking from across the Pond, Clive Shaw Trucking is offering the opportunity to drive a genuine US rig at the event. For £25 guests will be able to drive a Kenworth truck around the Tarmac Lake, perform a three point turn and then return back again. It is expected this activity will sell out in advance so interested visitors are advised to contact Clive Shaw Trucking direct for a booking form at cliveshawtrucking@hotmail.com.

The truck driving experiences are just part of the annual spectacular that forms Donington's biggest family event of the year. Over eight hours of action on track from the British Truck Racing Championship, plus huge entertainment areas including live music, food eating contests, comedy shows, massive display areas and stunt shows make it a memorable day out for the whole family, with free entry all weekend for children under-13.

Adult tickets for Convoy in the Park are available in advance from £20 per day, with discounted entry for teenagers aged 13-15 and free entry for under-13s. For more information or to book, click here.
