Convoy in the Park rocking at Donington – more to come!

Saturday, July 21 2018

Donington Park's annual Convoy in the Park trucking extravaganza got underway beneath blue skies today (Saturday) as HGV's filled the circuit's infield and race trucks took to the circuit.

Four British Truck Racing contests topped the bill, with two races for each of the championship's two divisions. The first truck race of the afternoon was even preceded by a free of charge public grid walk, an activity which will be repeated tomorrow ahead of the day's third scheduled truck race - one of six!

Convoy is about much more than just the racing though, and it's well worth an extensive wander around the venue's infield where the entertainment ranges from live music - Sunday's highlights will include The Counterfeit Beatles - to drift and stunt shows.

Where the show has really lived up to its name is with the massive 'convoy' or HGVs parked throughout the circuit's surround. From Renault to Scania, via Kelsa many of the world's major lorry manufacturers are represented in a heavy goods village which has to be seen to be believed - it's a real hive of activity.

The displays lie at the heart of an awesome trade show which benefits from the presence of many big name truck manufacturers, plus souvenir merchants, plus DVV Media and Truck & Driver who are heavily involved with the event's running.

If you've not attended today, then no worries - you can still experience all of this first hand at the circuit tomorrow, with tickets costing just £25 on the gate with free entry for under-13s.

Sunday's race line-up is a corker, with six British Truck Racing outings complemented by NASCAR-inspired Legends, Pickup Trucks, and Citroen 2CVs.

Tickets for Convoy in the Park at Donington Park on Sunday are available on the gate for £25 with FREE entry for under-13s. For more information, please call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
