One-make trucks series in pipe­line

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Truck Sport UK is de­vel­op­ing a pro­to­type for a new one-make truck rac­ing series, with the aim of in­au­gu­rat­ing a brand-new cham­pi­onship for 2018.

The com­pany, which pro­motes the Bri­tish Truck Rac­ing Cham­pi­onship, is eye­ing a launch for the new series next July at Don­ing­ton Park along­side a sched­uled BTRC meet­ing, be­fore a se­cond event at Brands Hatch. A full sea­son will then fol­low a year later.

The pro­to­type it­self, which will be based on an as-yetun­con­firmed ex­ist­ing make of truck, is sched­uled to be­gin test­ing at the end of the year and will be sub­ject to far more reg­u­la­tory con­trol, in­clud­ing en­gine power and chas­sis set-up, than cur­rent mod­els in the BTRC.

The pro­posed one-make cham­pi­onship could also use a new race for­mat, whereby the race would be sus­pended be­hind a pace truck at half-dis­tance, with an al­lo­ca­tion of points, be­fore the race re­sumes for a se­cond pe­riod.
