This week’s winner comes from an event that is beloved by all trucking enthusiasts: The British Truck Racing Association at Donington Park.

Trucking Magazine’s roving snapper took a short break from the motorways to witness trucks throwing caution to the wind as they use their 1000+ horsepower to hit the tracks and tight corners.

Taken on Sunday 24th August and posted to Facebook on the 25th, this beaut has several trucks sharing the limelight but with the focus landing on one make in particular. With a whopping 1,790 likes, 127 shares and 17 comments, this was our clear winner for this week.

The victor is the pace truck, an Imperial Commercials DAF XF 106, leading the division 2 pack down Craner Curves on their warm up lap prior to the start of race one.
