Truckfest UK 2013: Peterborough

May 03, 2013 12 Comments by

After the long, cold winters in Alaska, spring is a welcome sight. As it starts to warm up, I am able to get outside and play more with the dirt bikes and the horses, work on all the outdoor projects around the house and yard (and as you see from my posts, with all the animals and new horse equipment, I’ve got plenty to do in that department) to just enjoying a break from the freezing temperatures.

For the past few years for me, spring also is the start of one of my favorite events that I have had the pleasure to be associated with. Truckfest in the United Kingdom.

In fact, I’ve just arrived for Truckfest Peterborough that kicks off tomorrow and thought I’d write a quick post at the hotel. After a long day of travel, I was welcomed back to the UK by old Truckfest friends and beautiful weather; this weekend it looks like there won’t be any need for my “wellies” (rain boots) and, if you are attending, you should see me at a number of different areas around the venue. Stop by and say hi!

Truckfest is such an amazing event when it comes to trucks… It’s a family event, and features sooooo many different kinds of trucks (American and European, plus some specialty vehicles) to the tune of about 1,000 rigs. Just amazing. Beyond the trucks, Truckfest puts on some pretty amazing shows… Monster trucks to FMX dirt bike jumping (yeah, I am pretty much in heaven) along with a couple other celebrities here in the UK. There’s nothing else like it.

I’ll be sure to get a few pictures and up in a day or two, but if you are in the area, I sure hope you pop by. It’s a beautiful May Bank Holiday and it’s so nice to be back!

    I was there! Your right its such a great time, with the fmx display team, monster trucks (even though i went half deaf standing next to bigfoot as it floored the throttle in the main arena). But getting a pic with you was the hilight of the weekend by far. Keep on truckin’!

    In India we have springs only for a month or two in March and April then afterwards in the end of April it starts to warm up a lot
    i know in Alaska it does not go that much hot to about 48 to 50 or even more high degrees like in India. so we have to sit in our houses for most of the time. We get some time either in morning on about 4:00 am to excercise or in evening after 6:00 pm to go out to hang out with friends for me i can’t afford time to hang out with friends as i don’t have much friends not more than two three overall. i don’t have plenty of work to do for the whole day except going to soccer coaching of my college or studying or spending time with my pets (they include cats and dogs only). Unlike the truck fest we can’t have any fests in these months except small ones . But we do have an auto expo here in Delhi in December or sometimes in January i visit there every year where big and small companies like VOLVO, Mercedes Audi, Haunda display there trucks , cars and bikes many movie stars from Hollywood and Bollywood both visit and buy cars and bikes
    i know you are busy in these months but visit there if ever you can it is one of the biggest automobile shows in the world.

    In India we have spring in month of march only. afterwards it starts to grow hot like about 48 to 50 degrees i know it never grows this much hot in western countries . Like this truck fest an Auto Expo is organised in India in month of December or January where all the big and small national and international automobile companies present their new vehicles which they are about to launch some also put them up for sale . I visit there every year but in business days as it is less rush in those days and my dad works for the government we get VIP passes before they all are distributed i know being an Ice Road Trucker you would be busy in that part of the year
    but believe me you should visit there whenever possible
