What You Need To Know: Pembrey – May 7/8

Fresh off the back of a pulsating season-opener at Brands Hatch last month, the British Truck Racing Championship travels to South Wales this weekend (May 7/8) for the inaugural Convoy Cymru event at Pembrey Circuit.

Before the BTRC descends on the picturesque Welsh venue, here’s the full guide to make sure you don’t miss any of the action from the second event of the 2022 season.


The 2022 season will see a total of 20 trucks share one grid as they battle it out for supremacy, 13 of which will run in Division 1 and the remaining seven in Division 2.

After Brands Hatch, six-time reigning champion Ryan Smith holds the advantage at the summit of the Division 1 standings whilst John Powell is the driver to beat in the Division 2 rankings.

Simply put, Convoy Cymru is Wales’ biggest and best truck show. Having run events at both Donington Park and Thruxton, Convoy comes to Pembrey with hundreds of the biggest and best show trucks, top-class racing, an adrenaline-packed action arena and truck loads of family fun.
