THE unique Truxx Factor Show rolls back into Rockingham this weekend (September 22/23) for a two-day trucking spectacular and racing action from the British Automobile Racing Club (BARC) and Pickup Truck Championship.
The family-friendly show promises to appeal to people of all ages with its full programme both on and off the track celebrating all things trucking – the only challenge visitors will have is how to fit everything in to just 48-hours.
Taking centre stage is the truck show which attracts an array of entries from vintage and retro trucks to American classics and custom rigs through to the modern day era of the hard-working fleets from some of the UK’s biggest names in road haulage.
With various competitions running throughout the weekend, the rivalry between owner drivers and fleet operators is fierce as everyone wants to be crowned Truxx factor Champion. For the discerning truck fan, a classic tractor and steam section will feature over 100 years of haulage in the Transport through the Ages display.
In the Live Arena and on circuit, the rubber will be burning with demonstrations from the BriSCA (British Stock Car Association), F1 Stock Cars and NASCAR demonstrations. There’ll also be trade/industry displays as well as a strongman challenge.
Visitors will not be restricted to just spectating though, as there will also be the opportunity to jump in the passenger seat of a race truck, Long Goods Vehicle (LGV) or climb aboard the Red Dragon Monster Truck for a bone-shaking, car crushing ride!
Plus the famous Ken Fox Troupe Wall of Death, static displays and remote control trucks will all be on offer. While for the younger members of the family, there will be plenty to enjoy from mini Movie Truck rides, a family fun fair, bouncy castles, face painting and much, much more.
If that wasn’t enough, the Pickup Truck Championship will be making its final appearance on Europe’s fastest motor racing circuit! A firm favourite with the home crowd, the awesome trucks will be headlining the action in a winner takes all Grand Final.
There is a total of eight races on the timetable with the Kumho BMW Championship, Racing Fords and Max5 Championship all in action. Practice and qualifying takes place on Saturday followed by racing on Sunday. There will be a sprint races for both race and road trucks across both days.
