Wannabe truck racers of all ages will be able to put their driving skills to the test at Convoy in the Park at Donington Park on 21-22 July, thanks to a truck racing simulator on the MAN Truck & Bus stand.

Just like the real race trucks that will be thundering around the track at Convoy in the Park, the contestants will be able to experience the thrills and spills of the challenging Donington circuit.

The simulator will be free to use, and every day a prize will be awarded to the person with the fastest lap time at the end of the day.

This is just one of a number of driving experiences that will be on offer at Convoy in the Park. Other attractions include the opportunity drive one of two Taylors Transport’s driver training vehicles. Accompanied by a qualified instructor, visitors will be taught how to drive and reverse the trucks around a short course.
