It looks like we’ve got ourselves a Convoy!

Friday, August 02 2019

Convoy in the Park returns to Donington Park for a third year next weekend (10-11 August), for the UK's biggest celebration of all things trucking. It's the circuit's biggest family event of the year, with children under 13 going free all weekend!

Over 1,000 trucks are set to take over the legendary East Midlands race circuit, with the event featuring epic racing from the British Truck Racing Championship, as well as truck-themed displays and family activities all around the venue.

Eight races from the MV Commercial British Truck Racing Championship, which will feature incredible action from five-tonne racing trucks that accelerate as ferociously as machines half their size, headline the on-track action. A massive line-up of 23 trucks across two divisions has been confirmed, which should guarantee plenty of drama from the 'biggest' championship in the UK.

Support race action will come from Pickup Trucks, the comparatively miniscule Legends, Sports & Saloons, Super Silhouettes, Mighty Minis and the Jaguar Series Elite.

Off track, there's a huge assortment of activities fit for the whole family. The main stage on the circuit infield will be a major focal point throughout the event, with live music, kids' shows and cartoons, awards presentations, and even food eating contests!

A big top circus tent will also be on the infield for the whole weekend, with a 'Greatest Showman' show taking place several times each day, as well as a comedy show from a number of top comedians on the Saturday evening.

Another major attraction on the infield will be the huge show truck display area, with over 1,000 trucks expected to be on view, including large manufacturer-specific areas and show specials. The best trucks will receive awards on the main stage through the weekend.

The popular Live Action Arena returns again too, including the much-demanded return of the caravan smashes, stunt shows from Team Maximum Lock, drift truck demonstrations, and the Red Dragon Monster Truck, with rides available on the car crusher!

For younger visitors, there's even more to keep them occupied, thanks to a funfair, mini monster trucks, Scalextric racing, remote control trucks, kids' character mascots, free bush craft skills workshops, an inflatable assault course and a climbing wall, with small individual charges applying for some activities.

Visitors with a driving licence can even get behind the wheel of a truck themselves, courtesy of two different experiences that allow visitors to either drive a standard road-going truck, or a US-style machine!

Tickets for Convoy in the Park are available in advance until midday on Thursday 8 August, priced from £20 for adults. Discounted entry is available for teenagers aged 13-15, and children under-13 go free all weekend when accompanied by an adult. For more information and to book, click here.
