Welcome Truckfest South!
What a great start to a new legend we had in Newbury over the Bank Holiday Weekend. We have wanted to bring one of the Truckfest events to Newbury for such a long time and this year we had our opportunity. Everyone as they were leaving was saying that they can’t wait until 2017, many commented on the similarity in atmosphere to that of Truckfest North West which was launched in 2015 -“It just felt good.”
The quality of trucks and the diversity meant that the event really did have something for everyone – put this together with our friends Lisa & Todd from Ice Road Truckers and Ron and Amy from Lizard Lick Towing, a welcome return of daredevil Jason Smyth – who is an old friend of Truckfest, and of course monster truck Slingshot stomping its way over the wreckage in the main arena, together with the Newbury sunshine and the most amazing crowds who had never witnessed a Truckfest event before, and you’re good to go!
The Truckfest Team were that excited to see Slingshot at the event that we promptly signed him up for our next new event – Truckfest East at the Norfolk Showground on 20th and 21st August 2016.
Our next event in the Truckfest calendar is South West & Wales on 2nd and 3rd July 2016 – find out more here!
