Pembrey Circuit plays host to one of Wales’ biggest and best truck shows next weekend (May 20/21) as Convoy Cymru rumbles into town for two days of action-packed family fun – and it’s not to be missed.
Marking the start of a blockbuster summer – which also sees Convoy on the Plain at Thruxton and Convoy in the Park at Donington Park take place – the picturesque Welsh venue is set to welcome a bumper crowd for a festival of all things trucking.
Ahead of Convoy Cymru, here’s a quick breakdown of some of the many attractions that will be on-site at the venue:
TRUCK RACING TAKES CENTRE STAGE
Headlining the weekend’s track action will be five all-action races from the British Truck Racing Championship. A near-capacity grid of five tonne, 1000bhp heavyweight behemoths will go wheel-to-wheel over the course of both days to battle for supremacy – and picking a winner couldn’t be more difficult.
STELLAR SUPPORTING CAST
Of course it won’t just be the British Truck Racing Championship that competes during the weekend. Joining them on the billing will be races from the Junior Saloon Car Championship, Track Attack Race Club, 2CV Championship and Welsh Sports & Saloon Car Championship.
Jaw-dropping machinery won’t be confined to just the track as an abundance of Show Trucks from Wales and beyond will be on display around the venue; competing across a number of different categories as well.
Judges from Truck Sport UK will inspect and evaluate all trucks on display at Convoy Cymru, with the all-important top three results and silverware being presented on the main stage trailer during Sunday afternoon.
For the second year in succession, those attending can take a tour of the circuit during the lunch break on each day via the Pembrey Beach Bus, which provides a unique perspective and fantastic photo and video opportunities.
Visitors can also experience driving an American Kenworth or Peterbilt Truck courtesy of Clive Shaw Trucking, with passenger rides available too.
RED DRAGON MONSTER TRUCK RIDES
Want to experience what its like to drive over cars in a monster truck? Well now you can courtesy of the Red Dragon Monster Truck Rides, which is the only race-framed ride monster truck in Europe.
SQUIBB FREESTYLE MOTOCROSS STUNT SHOW
After some high-octane thrills? Look no further than the Squibb Freestyle Stunt Team – who are definitely worth seeing across Saturday and Sunday at Pembrey Circuit.
Led by veteran stunt rider Jamie Squibb, the UK-based motorcycle stunt team has captivated crowds for more than a decade and this weekend sees them bring their spectacular performance – which includes wheelies, stoppies, burnouts and jumps – to South Wales.
The Giti Tires Trailer Stage returns this year and its set to rock the paddock across both days. Saturday will see The Bar Hounds perform their hits whilst Otherside will be in attendance on Sunday.
If the rumble of the British Truck Racing Championship doesn’t get your pulse racing then we guarantee that Truck Drifting will. Tyre-shredding, sideways action is scheduled to take place on the circuit at 15:00 on Saturday and 14:20 on Sunday.
Pembrey will also welcome a number of exhibitors to Convoy Cymru, with the event being the perfect opportunity to engage with what is typically a hard-to-reach audience that is usually on the move.
The Convoy marketplace welcomes all sizes and types of businesses too; with stands ranging from some of the world’s biggest manufacturers and their dedicated UK dealers to cleaning brands, truck model enthusiasts and memorabilia merchants.
FUN FOR ALL THE FAMILY
Convoy Cymru is once again ensuring that there is something for everyone too and this year includes the likes of fairground rides, face painting, treasure hunts, eating competitions and food & drink stalls – guaranteeing fun for all the family.
