At Truxx Factor in addition to the track activities a 2nd Live Arena operates daily with the following activities.
An opportunty for the public to ride in a truck which for some will never happen in their life if they are outside the trucking industry. We charge a nominal fee of £1.00 which is donated to a local children's charity. At Rockingham our Corby based partners Route 1 Logistics will be providing the truck and driver.
LGV Driver Training Demonstration
The art of driving trucks can be natural for some but these days a stringent training course followed by a difficult test gets you on the road to being a trucker. Our partners at Rockingham are nationwide Company Pertemps Driver Training and with their pristine fleet together with their experienced instructors will be demonstrating some of the manoeuvring skills required. They also offer periodical CPC courses to keep LGV drivers up to speed with the industry.
Heavy Recovery Demonstration
All truck operators worst nightmare is when one of their vehicles is involved in an accident and is stranded somewhere, sometimes on its side. With the pressure to clear the obstruction it is the truck recovery operator that springs into action to come to the rescue. Some of the kit required these days costs hundreds of thousands of pounds to enable these 44 tonners to be lifted or righted. Who better to demonstrate this normally unseen part of our industry than the family firm this year which is celebrating 50 years of service than Lantern Recovery who are our partners for Rockingham. They are based at Potters Bar, Herts but offer nationwide recovery coverage and associated low loader transport services.
Truxx Factor Strongman Challenge
Those Truckers and Visitors feeling strong can participate in this challenge to move a 7t truck across the arena with true grit and determination.
The trucks will be supplied by our partners BSI Transport Ltd of Northampton for this activity who offer haulage services up to 44ton to all of the UK or Europe.
