Weekend Guide: Donington Park – August 12/13

The British Truck Racing Championship descends on Donington Park this weekend (August 12/13) for one of the biggest events on the UK motorsport calendar; Convoy in the Park.

On what promises to be an action-packed visit to the Leicestershire venue, here’s the full guide to make sure you don’t miss any of the action from the fourth event of the 2023 season:


This weekend’s entry list has again seen a further shake-up with Division 1 dropping to 12 competitors, whilst Division 2 has increased to seven.

Jock Borthwick remains sidelined due to injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident in June. Elsewhere, Simon Cole switches to Division 2 as he now pilots an IVECO.

As the season moves to the half-way marker, six-time reigning champion Ryan Smith currently holds the advantage in Division 1 whilst Adam Bint holds a slender lead at the summit of Division 2.
