A race truck is faster than a Porsche 911 to 100mph! Truck racing is pure excitement, an action packed motor sport that sees ‘tuned' HGVs hurtling round a race track at speeds up to 100mph! Racing is extremely close, with drivers using their expertise in acceleration and braking to chase and overtake each other on a narrow race track.
The FIA European Truck Racing Championship sees the 1200 bhp trucks travel across Europe, taking in eight rounds of what's fast becoming one of the Continent's most popular championships.
- Maximum race speed is restricted to 100mph for safety reasons
- A minimum weight of 5,500kg applies
- Races start from a rolling start and last from 8-12 laps
- Race trucks look like and use the major components that are used in their road-going counterparts
- Average number of spectators at each racing weekend is over 120,000
The weekend is not just about fast and furious truck races, it's a fun event for all the family: track-eating trucks, fast-paced racing, crowd-wowing entertainment and fantastic children's activities in the new ‘entertainment zone', featuring:

- Rodeo Bull

- Racing simulator
