Truckfest off to a flying start in 2016
In all the years of the Truckfest event we have never encountered such enthusiasm for the series of Truckfest events as 2016. It started off with our largest Peterborough event in it’s 34 year history with a staggering 2500 trucks entered into the numerous competitions. There seemed to be an added dimension this year, with the introduction of the truckers bar on the piazza, an area that is ready to be enhanced next year. With our friends from Lizard Lick Towing and Ice Road Truckers, breaking all records for the amount of autographs that were dispensed, It was an event to look back on with pride.
Second in was the new Truckfest South at the Newbury Showground. What was interesting other than how well supported it was was that it brought fourth a whole new previously unseen range of competitors. The event certainly came of age in it’s very first year and everyone is looking forward to a return in 2017.
You couldn’t have a better backdrop than the Malvern hills, and with Truckfest South West and Wales having located three years ago, It’s a venue that truck operators, drivers and their families can truly enjoy the best that summer has to offer.
2016 is far from over for Truckfest this weekend sees us back at the place it all started at the Newark showground, bringing together that mixture of everything that has gone before and the latest innovations in road haulage with truck entries and camping showing a considerable increase on 2015 we look forward to the glorious weekend weather that’s predicted.
We have listed the other Truckfest events for 2016, and you will see we are making a welcome return to the Norfolk showground. The last time that we were there was 1990 and I’m sure it will have it’s own special feel in the Truckfest series. Whichever Truckfest event you choose to visit, we look forward to seeing you and to a great Truckfest series of events, there’s one near you.
Our next event in the Truckfest calendar is Original at the Newark and Notts Showground – find out more here!
