The Pickup Truck Racing Series will be back to headline the racing action with Mark Willis in the #65 truck looking to defend his Rockingham 100 title he won at the first Cars & Stripes event last year.
Rockingham’s US-style motor speedway circuit is the spiritual home of these racers, and thanks to the fast and furious racing has won the hearts of motorsport fans and drivers alike making it a firm favourite with the home crowd.
Racing at breath-taking speeds on the Europe’s fastest race circuit and the UK’s only banked oval, the trucks are a spectacle unlike any other in European motorsport as they run bumper-to-bumper, drafting in each other’s slipstreams while jostling for position.
Over the course of two heats and a final, the trucks will hurtle around Rockingham’s 1.5-mile oval for no fewer than 100 laps but with no daylight between them who will be crowned the 2016 Rockingham 100 champion is anyone’s guess.
When the winner turns into Victory Lane, spectators will be able to get close to truck and driver to join in the celebrations or collect autographs during the special pit-lane walkabout.
