What You Need To Know: Donington Park – August 20/21

The British Truck Racing Championship descends on Donington Park this weekend (August 20/21) for one of the biggest events on the UK motorsport calendar; Convoy in the Park.

Before the BTRC descends on 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 2022 season.


This weekend will see the grids in both Division 1 and Division 2 increase as two familiar faces rejoin the fray for a one-off appearance.

Fan favourite Simon Cole makes a long overdue return to the series by stepping up to Division 1 with his new MAN. In Division 2, NAPA Racing UK will make their BTRC with Paul Rivett and a MAN.

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