Who and what is Dutch Truck Racing?

To get truck racing back on track. Ron Gerritsma initiated meetings with the Dutch teams. Ron is familiar with the organization around truckracing, since he has done this for 5 years. After a long period of consultations and meetings the association Dutch Truck Racing was founded in Septembre 2016.

What is Truck racing?

Dutch Truck Racing is an association dedicated to its members. We want to organize truckraces for the teams and let everyone enjoy these mastodons of the road on the tracks. We work cost neutral and have no profit model.
The association Dutch Truck Racing can be followed on this website and also through social media including facebook.

Goal of Dutch Truck Racing

The aim of the association is to organize two races from 2017 at Circuit Park Zandvoort. These are the Easter races and the finale races in October. There are a lot of positive talks to get the racetrucks back to the program!
In the future we hope to organize more races on different circuits in the Netherlands and beyond. For example, Assen, Nrburgring (D) and Zolder (B). If possible, we want to invite foreign teams.
At the Truckstar Festival in Assen, the trucks will be present again. Here theyll display some spectacular demonstrations like:
- Pursuit
- Go and Stop + slalom
- DRAG & start
- Start-explosion

To promote the truck races of our association, we will be present at various fairs and events.

Cost Display
A truck racing team needs a decent sponsorship budget, something they should regulate themselves. The teams will pay the registration fee for races themselves.

Circuit Costs may vary between 15.000,- and 22.000,-
These costs should be paid by the association, therefore we want to achieve a startgrid with 20 or more racetrucks. Only then the participation fee per team will be less.
We are looking for sponsors, who want to support the Dutch Truck Racing association, in order to organize and facilitate these truckraces.

We hope you got a good picture of this wonderful sport.
For questions and further information we will be happy to help.
