British Truck Racing Association Championship confirms 2019 calendar

13 Oct 18

The British Truck Racing Association Championship in association with Truck & Driver has unveiled its provisional calendar for 2019, boasting a bumper eight event schedule.

As the series heads onto the home stretch of the current campaign, plans are already afoot to build on what has been a successful 2018 season.

Brands Hatch will once again play host to the annual curtain-raiser around the Indy circuit, albeit at the later Easter weekend date of April 20/21.

From there the BTRAC will descend on South Wales for the first of two visits to Pembrey on May 11/12 before embarking on a seven-week break.

When the action resumes, the fastest circuit in the country, Thruxton, marks the third stop on the calendar before the heavyweight behemoths make the annual pilgrimage into mainland Europe to tackle the iconic Nurburgring.

Back on British soil, the ever-growing and much-loved Convoy in the Park will make it a summer to remember at Donington Park before the championship ventures to Norfolk to tackle the challenging Snetterton layout.

The road to the title will begin in earnest on October 5/6 as Pembrey stages the penultimate event of the season before Brands Hatch takes up its customary position, bookending the year by staging the season finale on November 2/3.
