Fans of action and stunts will be thrilled to hear that the Backdraft Wheelie Fire Truck is coming to Convoy in the Park at Donington Park on July 22-23.

The Backdraft Wheelie Fire Truck has gained a reputation across Europe for the range of stunts it performs. The front of the 20-tonne fire engine can jump 15ft into the air, and can shoot flames and fireballs at will.

It also comes with the traditional fire engine equipment – such as flashing lights and sirens – and the driver provides a running commentary to spectators throughout the display.

This is just one of the many attractions at Convoy in the Park – others include live music, truck sprints, caravan demolitions, a kid’s zone and much more – go to for the full list of what’s on.

Tickets are £15 for an adult day ticket and £25 for a weekend adult ticket. Children under 13 go free! You can also book a show truck into Convoy in the Park for £60 (including 2 adult weekend tickets) or £30 for a pre-1985 truck (also including 2 adult weekend tickets).
