Petrolheads gearing up for Truckfest this weekend

PETROLHEADS can enjoy no end of fuel-filled fun in Somerset this weekend. Truckfest South West takes place at the Royal Bath & West Showground on Saturday and Sunday (September 4 and 5). The show features a host of attractions, including new trucks from leading manufacturers, with product launches and show offers galore.

The Main Arena action will feature the likes of Monster Truck Swamp Thing and Broke FMX stunt show, hundreds of trade stands, fun fair rides, live music, celebrity guests and children’s characters. “Truckers, truck fans and families who have enjoyed this annual spectacle all over the UK for many years will again be able to walk around the Royal Bath and West Showground getting those all-important photographs of the UKs top trucks on display,” said an event spokesperson. “From classics of yesteryear to giant American Super trucks, expect to see the best there is.”

Truckfest’s event director, Bob Limming, added: “Our team has worked tirelessly to make sure we bring you the event you have grown to love over the past 30 years or more. “We have missed seeing our loyal visitors of Truckfest so much, and we cannot wait to welcome you all back.

“Whenever we ask our visitors why they come to Truckfest the reply is always the same – ‘we’ve come for the Trucks’ – and we promise you we will still have lots of trucks and lots of family fun for all the family at Truckfest 2021, we ask you this year to pre-book online and you can do so on the Truckfest website where you will of course enjoy the pre-booking discount.

“Your advanced ticket will also ensure swifter entry into the event.”
