The Pickup Truck Championship is the ONLY competitive motorsport in the UK that uses the whole Rockingham Oval for its races!! Yes, PTR is the only Championship brave enough to drive with that massive wall right next to them for every inch of every lap of the race.
Pickup Truck Racing and the Junior Saloon Championship have been working together over the last few months and have come up with an opportunity for a select few young drivers to experience the thrills and gain an insight into racing a Pickup Truck. Today, here at Rockingham, the drivers of both Championships came together for a unique photo opportunity. In the near future, the lucky JSC drivers will get some track time to see what a mighty Pickup Truck can do and to give them an opportunity to look into another Championship to broaden their driving experience.
To celebrate out first visit to the Monster oval this year PickupTruckRacing.com has teamed up with Rockingham Motor Speedway to give away a Family ticket to the event on 9 April and a Rockingham Goodie bag. To be in with a chance of winning one of the two prizes, like our Facebook page and email your name to email@example.com. Winners will be announced on Monday 3 April.
Having had the winter months to get all the trucks ready for the new 2017 Pickup Truck Racing season, it’s not always a simple task that can be done in a few weeks and then allow yourself some time off. All team members of the No.12 Matt Roach Racing crew have had a hectic last few days, re-building their fantastic looking machine’s heart after it decided to stop playing and break itself. For the last few days all the crew members have been involved in organising parts to be fixed, tested and then installed back into the truck at all hours of the day. It seems there was many of hours spent driving all over the country through the night, with even more hours building the engine while you and I were fast asleep. It is clearly a case of the MRR Team pulling out all the stops and doing what is needed, regardless of the time of day. This is true dedication at the highest level and once again proves that these gentleman and their amazing machines are not playing that this motorsport.
Good luck today and tomorrow at Brands Hatch guys!! Lets hope you can put on a great show and be competitive.
The weather is beautiful and Brands Hatch roars to the sounds of motorsports. Make sure you get here to watch the Pickup Trucks later on today!!!
14 days until the Pickup Truck Racing Championship head back to world famous Rockingham Oval Circuit. #ptrrockingham @RockinghamUK
