The time of year has come around again, the new racing season is about to begin. At Briarwood we are proud to sponsor upcoming truck racing team Janes Trucksport, championed by our very own Oly Janes. We’d like to take this opportunity to talk about some of the exciting events Janes Trucksport has been given the chance to participate in this year, along with the races the team will be participating in.
The first race of the British Truck Racing Championships which Janes Trucksport will be participating in is Brands Hatch which takes place over the weekend of the 25th and 26th of March – just a couple more weeks to go! This legendary British racing circuit in Kent plus host to this event which boasts ‘Six-wheels, five-tonnes, and 1000-horsepower: The British Truck Racing Championship is quite unlike any other UK racing series and it will kick off for 2017 with a full weekend’s racing on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit. With reverse-grids and an obscene amount of power, be prepared to see plenty of overtaking and oversteering!’ You can see details of the event and get your tickets here at their website, http://www.brandshatch.co.uk/
But there has also been some really exciting news this season, and a huge honour was bestowed upon Oly from the T1 Prima Truck Racing Championships in India, who recently invited him to compete as one of the top 12 international drivers. This is evidence of his position as one of the best, so congratulations and good luck to him! You can check out the details on their website at http://www.t1primatruckracing.com/, but we are all very pleased for Oly and massively excited.
Obviously, we’re super proud to sponsor Janes Trucksport in all their endeavours and having seen the race truck being rebuilt ready for the 2017 season we are confident that they will be seeing some top rating finishing places this season. They’ve all been working hard to prepare, check out their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/janes.trucksport) to see the truck in various stage of build, their awesome new garage, and details of all their other sponsors. We would like to take this opportunity to wish Oly and the team the best of luck, and we will certain be at all the UK events to cheer him on!
