Donington Park will rumble to the sounds of horsepower this weekend (August 21/22) as the British Automobile Racing Club speeds into Leicestershire for a titanic two days of track action.
After being postponed last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Convoy in the Park makes a triumphant return. Showcasing more than 1000 Show Trucks, driving experiences, stunt arena, trade village and much more, the two-day event is a festival of all things trucking that is fun for all the family.
Whilst there is set to be plenty to see off-track over the course of the weekend, on it will see a number of championships continue their 2021 campaigns.
Heavyweight thrills ’n’ spills will be provided by the British Truck Racing Championship, with bumper entry lists in Division’s 1 & 2 confirmed for its five scheduled contests.
Reigning champion Ryan Smith is in the box seat of Division 1 as it stands after making a lightening start and he will be hard to beat once again. In Division 2, just a couple of points separate Craig Evans and Steven Powell heading into the weekend.
Miles Rudman occupies top spot in the Legends Cars National Championship with MRF Tyres standings and the former champion looks in good form as he seeks to retain the title he lost last year.
With no less than six races set to play out under the flight path of East Midlands airport during the weekend, Rudman will need to be at his best as the likes of John Mickel, Jack Parker and Sean Smith, amongst many more, will all be hot on his heels.
The Pickup Truck Racing Championship has been home to a number of edge-of-the-seat moments this year and more are expected to come, whilst there have also been plenty of entertaining battles in the Caterham Graduates Championship.
Notable names to look out for during the weekend amongst the Caterham contingent include Harry Senior, Ben Winrow, Jamie Ellwood, James McCall and several more.
Saturday afternoon will see the Silverlake C1 Racing Series take centre stage as they hold what should be an enthralling 180-minute endurance race around Donington’s flowing curves.
Rounding off the weekend will be a regular appearance from the BARC North West Centre’s flagship series, the CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Car Championship. Renowned for producing close-quarter racing, the multi-class series isn’t to be missed.
