On Sunday 24th and Bank Holiday Monday 26th May, Beaulieu will be super-sizing its offering to visitors with its popular, family-friendly event, Truckmania. This exciting show, now in its third year, is back for 2015 with even bigger displays and more trucking action.
In the picturesque surroundings of the Beaulieu parkland, trucks and lorries of all shapes, sizes and ages will be on display for visitors to get up close to. Vehicles on display will include eco-friendly lorries, themed and specially decorated trucks, plus many commercial and traditional models.
Visitors can vote for their favourite truck in the People’s Choice Award, with the owner of the winning truck receiving a Beaulieu trophy.
See the amazing performance of Big Pete and the Grim Reaper, crushing cars and putting on a truly thrilling display in two action-packed shows each day.
In the Grand Marquee, see Mini Truck World which will be whirring into action with a wide range of remote controlled model trucks. From a construction site to a road network, these RC trucks will recreate everything that full-size trucks do on a daily basis.
TV trucking personality, Mark Dixon, will again be joining the action on both days, talking with event commentator, Kevin Harris, sharing his knowledge of trucks and saying hello to visitors.
Always fun for both participants and spectators alike, the Truck Agility Test sees truck drivers manoeuvring their cab around a number of awkward obstacles, with a Beaulieu Trophy awarded each day to the most skilled driver.
Visitors can take part in the ‘Beaulieu Truck Pull’. Both individual and team participants are welcome, with all those taking part receiving a very special medal. For younger visitors there is an inflatable children’s play area* and the opportunity to drive mini trucks on Dipstick’s Driving Circuit.
