BARC & BTRA reaches commercial agreement with Truck Sport UK

The British Automobile Racing Club and British Truck Racing Association are delighted to announce that it has secured an agreement with Truck Sport UK for the promotion and marketing of the 2020 BTRA British Truck Racing Championship.

Maintaining its role as the official organiser of the championship, the BARC will work with Truck Sport UK and Road Transport Media to develop the commercial side of the series; including sponsorship, PR, media relations and promotion.

The new arrangement between all parties has been negotiated with the support of the British Truck Racing Association.

Commenting on the new agreement, BARC Group Chief Executive Ben Taylor said: “There has been a lot of uncertainty around the BTRA Championship in recent months, but I am delighted that we have been able to secure this agreement which is great news for British Truck Racing.

“We believe that Truck Sport are ideally placed to help the BARC and the BTRA take this championship forward and we look forward to getting started immediately.”

The seven-round 2020 season will kick off at Brands Hatch in April before going on to visit Pembrey (twice), Thruxton, Donington Park and Snetterton, before concluding back at Brands Hatch in November for the annual fireworks finale.

As part of Truck Sport UK’s aim to assist with the growth and recognition of the series, the successful ‘Convoy in the Park’ event will return to Donington Park in August, with two additional meetings also planned. ‘Convoy on the Plain’ will be held at Thruxton in late June whilst ‘Convoy Cymru’ will take centre stage at Pembrey in October.
