We got us a Convoy!Published Thursday, 30th April 2020
In a world where we can’t see each other socially, it might be considered a bold move to talk about attending a festival celebrating everything about trucks and life on the road.
We love a bold move!
So here we are, letting you know that – all being well – our Convoy truck shows will be back later this year, bigger and better than ever!
Our original and flagship event, Convoy In The Park, which last year welcomed more than 1,000 trucks to Donington Park is set for August, and we’ve lined up a second weekend of truck devotion at the Pembrey Circuit in Wales for the first weekend in October! In June next year, we’ll complete the line-up with our first event at Thruxton – Convoy on the Plain!
Of course, we can’t yet guarantee these events will take place and we will be watching closely the government advice on safety.
What we can guarantee is that if our events need to be postponed or cancelled, all bookings and visitor tickets will be transferred to a new date, and if you can’t make that you’ll get a full refund – no fuss.
So, take a look around our new website to find out more and book in to to showcase your truck or to join us for some trucking good fun! And if you want to talk to us about booking a stand in our marketplace please email email@example.com.
You can also follow us on our social media channels where we will be sharing a bit more positivity, and celebrating all the hard-working truckers who are keeping the wheels turning or chomping at the bit to get back on the road. You are all magnificent.

Convoy in the Park and Convoy Cymru
Your safety is always going to be our priority and it’s for that reason and with heavy hearts, we are calling off this year’s Convoys at Donington and Pembrey.
We are so sorry.
We are just as disappointed as we know you will be.
Things had been looking positive for a couple of weeks, but with the recent rise in Covid-19 cases, local lockdowns and restrictions, we just can’t promise to deliver the kind of show you guys deserve. And we don’t want to deliver anything less.
The British Truck Racing Championship racing is set to continue at Donington Park on the weekend of 22nd and 23rd August, and under current guidelines spectators will be welcome. So if you were going along to watch the racing, please continue on that basis and visit www.msv.com for tickets.
But if you were bringing your show truck, or visiting to see the trucks and enjoy the entertainment then we’re afraid for this year it’s the end of the road. To make things as easy as possible, we will be issuing full refunds to everyone who had booked in trucks within the next 14 days. All visitor ticketholders – so those with day tickets, weekend or camping tickets – will be contacted directly by MSV for next steps.
The light at the end of the tunnel is we are already planning a bigger and better truck bonanza for all three of our Convoys in 2021 – Convoy On The Plain, Convoy In The Park and Convoy Cymru, so please do continue to watch this space.
We’ll release dates as soon as we can.
Before then, thanks so much for your support. We are so lucky to be part of such a fantastic community and we will really miss seeing you.
Keep On Truckin’,
