The Pickup Truck Racing Championship is gearing up to be back and better than ever in 2021 as preparations continue to ramp up ahead of the start of the new season, with no less than 31 drivers already signed up to compete.
Having taken a sabbatical from the track last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the much-loved series is primed to return and its keen to make up for the adrenaline-filled entertainment that was unable to take place in 2020.
Boasting a bumper entry list that exceeds 30 cars, the battle for supremacy to clinch the coveted title is set to be fierce, with 2019 title winner George Turiccki leading the way. After being unable to defend his crown last year, Turiccki technically enters the season as the reigning champion and he will be focused on securing back-to-back championship victories.
Leading the chase for Turiccki are perennial contenders Michael Smith, Dale Gent, Mark Willis, Reece Jones, David O’Regan and Daniel Petters, amongst many others including a total of eight rookies.
This year’s calendar will see a potential 22 races spread across ten events over the course season. Five of those race meetings will be in support of the blockbuster British Truck Racing Championship whilst a further two will play out around the one-mile oval at Mallory Park.
Visits to Knockhill and Lydden Hill will add further intrigue and excitement to proceedings before three trips to Brands Hatch complete what is set to be a spectacular campaign.
Providing value for money and with a family ethos running throughout the paddock, the Pickup Truck Racing Championship will undoubtedly make its mark throughout 2021 as it looks to bounce back from a quiet 2020.
