Don’t miss the 'smashing' Live Action Arena at Convoy in the Park!

Friday, June 29 2018

The Live Action Arena at Donington Park's Convoy in the Park will deliver high-octane thrills on 21-22 July, with a huge number of unmissable stunts, shows and driving experiences set to take place.

This will be the scene for plenty of destruction! Caravans will be smashed to smithereens courtesy of the daily caravan smash displays - suitable therapy for anyone who has been stuck behind one on the road! Unsuspecting caravans will be tethered to the back of trucks and driven to destruction until there's barely anything left!

Spectacular driving will come from Team Maximum Lock, who will perform a combination of stunts, drifting and inch-perfect synchronised driving and have been thrilling audiences across Europe since 2010.

Of course, with this being a truck event, there will also be drift demos from the big boys, as full size trucks prove they can also get the rubber burning in spectacular style!

There will be opportunities to take part too… Visitors can go sideways at speed thanks to the Flat Out Factory, who will be offering drift taxi rides. Meanwhile, spectators will have the opportunity to ride in a giant monster truck as it crushes all cars in its path, thanks to the Red Dragon Monster Ride Truck. This mean machine packs a 6.5 litre Chevy V8 engine and carries up to 10 passengers.

And if riding along isn't enough, visitors will be able to drive a real truck themselves. Fans of American trucks can get behind the wheel of a Kenworth and a Peterbilt, provided by Clive Shaw Trucking. This needs to be booked in advance (£25 for driving or £8.50 for a passenger ride), by clicking here or calling 07841 328493.

Those who have never driven a truck before will also be able to test their skills at the wheel of two Taylors Transport training vehicles. Accompanied by a qualified instructor, visitors will be taught how to drive and reverse the trucks around a special course.

The Live Action Arena is one of the many sideshows at Convoy in the Park, with incredible truck racing on track and around 1,000 trucks on display around the venue, interspersed with a wide range of family activities including a funfair, kids' rides, simulators, shopping and trade villages and much more.

Adult tickets for Convoy in the Park are available in advance until midday on Thursday 19 July, priced from just £20 per day or £30 for the full two-day weekend. Discounted rates are also available for children aged 13-15. For more information or to book, click here
