1000bhp Race Trucks to Return to Mondello Truck Show 2014
June 3, 2014 by Leo Nulty
Following the successful return of the Mondello Truck Show last year, the County Kildare motorsport venue will host another running of the family orientated event on 5/6 July next, two weeks earlier than in 2013. All the activities that made the weekend’s programme so enjoyable last time out have been retained, with new interesting elements added.
Entertainment and exhibitions combine to provide an attractive mix at the 2014 Mondello Park Truck Show highlighted by Truck Racing, On-track competitions, Trade Stand exhibits and of course the hundreds of haulier’s gleaming working trucks. In addition, Ireland’s Best Truck Driver Competition will be launched at the show in association with the event’s media partners Fleet Transport Magazine and Enprova.
“Last year we welcomed thousands of visitors and hundreds of truck owners to the re-established Mondello Truck Show and we look forward to greeting even more next month. The Mondello Truck Show differs from all the others in that our purpose-built facility and on-track action is a unique environment for the industry to showcase its wares and for members of the road transport industry to come together and celebrate their profession,” stated John Morris, Managing Director, Mondello Park.
Leading chargers in the British Truck Racing scene will take a break from their mid-season siesta by returning to Mondello Park for a series of races on both days. The sight and sound of these 1000hp racing tractor-units just have to be seen again and again. Other track activities include Ireland’s Quickest Courier, Stop & Go Challenge and the Irish Time-Attack Championship.
Around the circuit the Static Truck Displays will be lined up where truck owners and drivers turn out their working vehicles in the best shape possible. “Additional prizes of Silver and Bronze will be presented to the majority of category winners, for the 2014 show, and new classes have been introduced,” added John Morris. They will also have plenty of time to exchange experiences and stories in a relaxing atmosphere.
