    British Truck racing at Brands Hatch Pics! 56k warning!

    Heya,

    well me and me dad jst got back from goin to brands hatch, i havent been there for years, used to go all the time when the touring cars were down there.

    We went to see the Track racing, ive never seen them live, seen them on the tele a few times, but thought that it would be cool to see what they are like live.

    So heres a few piccys to show ya's:

    There were these little cars, Legends, or thats what they race name is called. there 5/8th scaleed yamaha powered machines. they looks so cool and fun to race about!









    And then the Trucks came on, minimum 5500kg in weight, up to 1000hp. They were getting throw about like crazy, and when one went off, damn nothing stoped it!









    This guy actually lost in on this corner, but people were standing in the way so couldnt get it sliding off:!





    And as you can see from the photos it was rather wet! our umbrella get folding over damit.


    Oh and it was fun getting out, slipping everywhere, acdientaly wheel spined a bit, and rather cover the car in mud ooops!

    We went along to there today also! Its superb watching the Trucks in race live, its always been great watching them on the TV but to see them live was awesome, so much fun.

    It would have been a better day tho if it wasnt for the blodody weather!!! We left after the second truck race.
