BARC announces Truck Racing dates for 2016

The British Automobile Racing Club is pleased to announce the 2016 race dates for the Truck Racing Championship.After a superb 2015 season which saw full grids in both divisions, expectations are high for more of the same next year, visiting the usual circuits including supporting the FIA Nürburgring round in July.Every year, this fantastic championship goes from strength-to-strength, with exciting racing at every event – and with the mighty trucks able to out-accelerate a Porsche from a standing start, it’s no wonder it’s as popular as it’s ever been. The number of different drivers taking to the podium after each race is testament to just how close the action invariably is.In addition to the traditional Thruxton and Pembrey visits, Silverstone returns to the calendar following its inaugural event last year and the season culminates in the Brands Hatch finale with its spectacular firework-supported truck parade in November.2016 Truck Racing CalendarMarch 27-28 Brands HatchApril 23-24 PembreyJune 11-12 Thruxton July 2-3 Nürburgring (D)July 23-24 Donington ParkAugust 13-14 SilverstoneSeptember 10-11 SnettertonOctober 15-16 PembreyNovember 5-6 Brands Hatch
