British Truck Racing Association Championship 2017 – Pembrey Race Circuit

british truck racing championships,pembrey

The British Truck Racing Association Championship at Pembrey Race Circuit on 21st April & 22nd April 2017.  This was the second round of the event.  Also held during the race weekend was Pickup Championships, Caterham Graduates including WRDA Sports & Saloons.  A good day as weather made for good track conditions with plenty of action in all classes.

One notable event was the seven truck incident at Spitfires turn which led to a red flag.  The race was back underway after a good twenty minutes of clearing up the bits of smashed race trim.  Images below are from Sunday which included all three events.

It has also been mentioned by Pembrey Race Circuit that this was the best event yet for crowd attendance.  It certainly was an exciting weekend for spectators.  I really hope that this will make other sporting events come to the circuit, especially after the new upgrade.  Exciting times ahead perhaps.
