Tuesday, October 18 2016

The five-tonne, 1,000-horsepower racing trucks are a hugely popular sight at Brands Hatch, and they return for the final five rounds of the year. A packed grid of leviathans are set to roar into Paddock Hill bend at astonishing speeds, with bumping and barging, powerslides and wheel-to-wheel duels all part of the action!

A packed supporting programme features some of the best of British motorsport, including the pocket-sized Legends Cars and NASCAR-style Pickup Trucks providing breathtakingly-close racing on the UK's top spectator circuit. There's also entertaining action from the Quaife Motorsport News Saloons, Intermarque Championship and Cannons Tin Tops.
