Saturday 02 - Sunday 03 November 2013

The British Truck racing season finale will once again be a Guy Fawkes spectacular this weekend, with a massive firework display following a packed programme of racing on Sunday!

There'll be plenty of sparks flying on the track too, with 1,000bhp trucks that can out-drag a Porsche 911 and corner with astonishing agility, often with the rear stepping out in a spectacular powerslide. The brave drivers aren't afraid to risk a bit of body contact as they jostle for position, and the racing is every bit as fraught as the BTCC!

Truck racing is one of Brands Hatch's most popular family events, with a bulging timetable featuring great support races that's accompanied by plenty of off-track entertainment, including a circus workshop, monster truck rides, fun fairs, face painting, go karting and much more. Click the 'Off Track Entertainment' tab for details and click here to download a venue map for the event.

The food and drink in our restaurants also has a special 'Guy Fawkes' theme this weekend - click here to view our menu and opening times!


UPDATE: Sunday's timetable has been amended and will now feature four Truck races, with the first starting at 10am. All races on Sunday's published timetable will take place after that race.
 
Please note - parking on Southbank will be limited at this event due to the positioning of the fireworks display. Please click here to view a map showing the restricted area. Access to Southbank will be £2 on the Saturday and £5 on the Sunday (per vehicle).
