One weekend could change your life forever!
Prepare to be blown away by this fast moving Trucking Spectacular Show as it rolls into Rockingham Motor Speedway Nr Corby on the weekend of September 30th and October 1st.
Pushing on from Santa Pod in May and the success of two previous Silverstone annual events the Truxx Factor team brings their one-of-a-kind experience into Europe’s fastest oval race track for the first time. “Truxx Factor is back with a bang! Bring your company, your truck or your family and camp with us for the weekend for an experience like no other,” declared show organiser Steve Horne.
Half of the track programme will include pickup trucks, legends and the Mini championship races. “After spending over 30 years around race circuits here in the UK it will be great to see road trucks and race trucks completing on the sprint course on the International circuit as part of the Truxx Factor Challenge, which is a first for 2017,” he said.
Regular truck show goer Steve Jackman, who runs SJ Commercial Services Limited in Lancashire, attends many shows across the UK but it’s this one he is looking forward to the most. “It’s a good show, the family love it, and there are all sorts of things going on. It’s got that personal touch, that’s what we love about it,” he said.
A second live arena will combine the visual impact and smell of BriSCA (British Stock Car Association) F1 stock cars and BDC (British Drift Championship) drifters burning rubber in their demonstrations.
There is a lot more going on besides, Steve Horne explained, with trade and industry displays such as LGV driver training and forklift training assault course. “The heavyweight recovery trucks will there too with a live display and there will be public truck rides too. You will see local Strongmen take on the truckers in a Truck Pull and other gripping challenges,” he said.
On display in the Truxx Factor Truck Show will be custom, restored, American, retro and vintage trucks, complimented by hard-working fleet vehicles from the biggest and best operators. “There will be awards for the cleanest trucks, awards for the Road Truck Sprint, and many other competitions. For enthusiasts there will be classic tractors and a steam section where our ‘Transport Through the Ages’ feature will represent over 100 years of haulage,” Steve Horne said.
Family entertainment will be front and central with the Ken Fox Troupe Wall of Death, Red Dragon Monster Truck, Mini Monster Truck Mania, Simulator Race Truck Experience, Radio Control Trucks, Kids Art Competitions and Face Painting to name but a few.
There are trade and industry exhibition areas to suit everyone’s budget with corporate hospitality for companies to display their product and entertain clients in the top 100 VIP Truck Paddock Club.
The action goes on into Saturday evening with a Mechanics competition, Showtruck lights at night leading into Live Music with a bar and hot food until 11.00 pm.
