Truck loads of en­ter­tain­ment

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Thou­sands of en­thu­si­asts turned out for a two-day Truck Fest at the Hop Farm at Bel­tring, with many camp­ing overnight.

They were greeted with arena en­ter­tain­ment that ranged from car-crush­ing by a mon­ster truck, to re­cov­ery demon­stra­tions and the mo­tor­cy­cle dis­play team Stunt­world who made some amaz­ing jumps over ve­hi­cles.

Vis­i­tors could also ride on an open-backed mon­ster truck or visit the many trade and ac­ces­sories stalls, which in­cluded a dis­play by the Daf com­pany which is cel­e­brat­ing its 90th birth­day.

Chil­dren were not for­got­ten with a fun­fair and a spe­cial Kids Zone play area pro­vided.

A com­pe­ti­tion for the Best Kept Work­ing Truck was won by P.J.Lee and Sons. Sta­ple­hurst Tran­sits took the prize for the Best Se­nior Work­ing Truck and the Best Kept Vin­tage Ve­hi­cle and also the Best Kept Fleet.
