Automobile Racing Club soaked up the sun to produce two days of unmissable, edge-of-the-seat entertainment on the weekend June 5/6 at Brands Hatch.
The headline act during the weekend was the British Truck Racing Championship. Lifting the curtain on a brand-new season, the heavyweight behemoths wasted no time in making their presence known as they served up five bruising encounters.
Division 1 saw reigning five-time champion Ryan Smith begin the pursuit of a sixth crown on the right foot as he powered his way to a hat-trick of wins. Martin Gibson and Mark Taylor would go on to end Smith’s winning streak on Sunday as they tallied a win apiece.
In Division 2, defending champion Steven Powell enjoyed an equally impressive start to the season as he, like Smith, scored a trio of victories. Such is the competitiveness throughout the field, Powell was unable to claim a clean sweep as former champion Adam Bint and Craig Reid also stood on the top step of the podium.
