The first round of the FIA European Truck Racing Series will take place at the Donington Park Circuit this Easter Bank Holiday weekend, 23rd and 24th April 2011.  Renault Trucks is the main sponsor of this exciting UK industry event, which marks the return of the FIA series to the UK, after a significant absence.  

In addition to the FIA European Truck Racing, the Donington event will provide entertainment for all the family, with support races, parades, paddock shows and a variety of stalls and children’s entertainment, making it a great day out for anybody that wants to enjoy some fun and excitement both on and off track over the Easter holiday weekend.  

Entrants will include MKR Technology, the Renault Trucks supported team, which won the FIA European Truck Racing team championship prize in 2010, in its first year of competition. The team is hoping to get its season off to a cracking start at Donington to defend its crown for a second year!   

“This first event of the FIA truck racing season at Donington is about more than Renault Trucks and MKR Technology.  It’s an industry event that will bring together trucks from many makes and racing enthusiasts from across Europe.  We are proud to be the main sponsors of this event and will be working hard with our network to ensure we maximise the opportunities around the racing to build the Renault Trucks brand in the UK market.” comments Marc Martinez, Managing Director of Renault Trucks UK Ltd

Support races for the event will include Pickup Trucks, Legends Cars and the Protyre Formula Renault BARC Championship.
