DSV Commercials sponsor a truck race team in conjunction with PT Hire, a long standing customer of ours and sub-contractor of DSV Road Limited. This year they won the British Truck Racing Association Championship which was televised on Motors TV.
Ryan Smith secured the Division One - 2016 BTRA British Truck Racing Championship in the final round at Brands Hatch on Saturday and Sunday – 5th/6th November.
Posting fastest race lap (1m.01.34s / Average speed 70.89mph) Ryan Smith was glued to the back of Stuart Oliver for almost the entire 16 laps of the first race, attempting to pass at any given opportunity. But Stuart Oliver was persistent and finally crossed the finishing line 0.421s ahead. However, 2nd place was enough for Ryan Smith to clench the championship.
Ryan Smith was more than happy with his runner-up spot; his PT Hire-backed MAN has already taken 17 victories this year and now the championship title is also safely secured.
The team have also done very well in four European rounds, the driver becoming somewhat of a local hero in Czech Republic.
