World crane championship qualifier set for Convoy event

Tuesday, July 10 2018

Fierce competition won't be limited to just the track at Donington's Convoy in the Park event on 21-22 July, when some of the country's most skilled crane operators will be aiming to reach the finals of the World Crane Championship!

The event will see operators take control of the same Hiab machine as they aim to clear obstacles in the fastest possible time. Tasks include picking up loads, knocking over drums, avoiding pallet stacks, avoiding crossbars and dropping items into barrels, all with a crane arm that will need to be extended to different lengths throughout.

The fastest competitor from the weekend will secure a place in the World Crane Championship finals at Hannover in September. A number of qualifying rounds have already taken place throughout Europe, with the fastest time to complete the course so far being 2 minutes, 25 seconds by a Danish entrant.

The World Crane Championship qualifier will be one of the many sideshows at Convoy in the Park on 21-22 July, which features epic on-track action from the British Truck Racing Association Championship and endless family entertainment including live music, a circus tent, exhilarating live action arena, children's entertainers, massive show truck display areas and comedy shows. 

Adult tickets for Convoy in the Park are available in advance until midday on Thursday 19 July, priced from just £20 per day or £30 for the full two-day weekend. Discounted rates are also available for children aged 13-15. For more information or to book, click here
