Once again the BTRA – British Truck Racing Association’s ‘Thundering Tornados’ are coming to Ireland for their annual pilgrimage to the Mondello Truck Show.
On the weekend of 3rd & 4th September next, the heavy hitting, high horse-powered crusaders will take to the challenging Mondello National Circuit with a series of demonstration races on both days.
The biggest names in the sport will be behind the wheels of the biggest race machines and make for another spectacular series of high-octane drives. Unique to the BTRA Championship is that interested spectators are allowed up close to see the inner working of the speedy tractor-units and have a chat to the drivers and mechanics. Ten Championship contenders will cross the Irish Sea having competed in Round 6 at the Silverstone TruxxFactor event.
Top truck brands specialising in circuit racing from a European perspective featuring strongly in the Championship such as MAN, Volvo, Scania, Iveco, SISU, Renault, Freightliner while famous British marques such as Foden and ERF are still battling it out with the others. On average these trucks pump out 1,100 hp and race along door-to-door, bumper-to-bumper at speeds of up to 160 kp/h. No mercy given or shown by these racing gladiators!
