Due to the high profile of this coming weekend’s Truck Race event, may we please take this opportunity to politely request that when and where possible all teams give special attention to the standard of presentation a general appearance of your own paddock area including all support vehicles and race equipment.

It is the intention to have the driver trophy presentations shortly following the end of each race, this will be done next to the GOODYEAR exhibition unit at the Redgate Corner end of the paddock.
The Truck Race schedule for the weekend will be as per the published timetable with the exception that the last and final race on the Sunday will only include the 12 top points scoring drivers (“from the previous four races in both Championship classes”). Please note this will be a BTRC points scoring race. The start grid will be Class A / Division 1 trucks at the front and Class B / Division 2 trucks immediately behind. The formula to determine the start grid will be confirmed ASAP.
