The pick-up truck championship makes a final visit to Rockingham circuit, Corby, at the weekend (September 1/2) as part of the British Automobile Racing Club (BARC) race meeting.

A firm favourite at the Northamptonshire circuit, the Rockingham crowd can expect the usual full-throttle, bumper-to-bumper racing from the trucks as the championship season draws to a close.

Spectators will get a taste of the adrenalin-fuelled action during Saturday’s qualifying, before the trucks battle it out over 35-laps on the UK’s only banked oval, Europe’s fastest racing circuit, in two hotly-contested races on Sunday.

With just nine rounds of the championship remaining over four race meetings, Nic Grindrod will be hoping to maintain his slender advantage at the top of the leader board over reigning champion Steve Dance.

However it’s not a two-truck race as Paul Tompkins and Phil White are still in the hunt for title honours.

Away from the Oval, there will also be action on the International Super Sportscar Circuit from the Dunlop Intersteps Championship, Classic Formula Ford 1600 & 2000, Kumho BMW Championship and Production Touring Cars.

Adult tickets for the BARC race weekend are £15 per day and admission for children aged 16 or under is free.

All tickets include a free grandstand seat with a panoramic view of the entire circuit, and access to the race paddock, allowing an insight into the hard work behind the scenes from the teams.

Advance ticket can be booked online at www.rockingham.co.uk or via the ticket hotline on 01536 500500 until midday today (August 31) but spectators will be able to purchase them on the gate.
