Four action-packed truck races thrilled the spectators at Brands Hatch on Sunday.
Matt Summerfield won the Grand Final while Tonbridge’s Dave Smith dominated the Class B proceedings.
The first race of the afternoon was for the Class B machines and Smith finished ahead of Oly Janes in second and Herne Bay’s John Powell in third.
Next up was the Class A battle and reigning champion David Jenkins clinched the victory.
He had to overcome a tough challenge from pole-sitter Matt Summerfield, who lost the lead after going sideways at Druids.
Summerfield finished the race behind Jenkins while West Kingsdown’s Steven Powell failed to finish due to mechanical issues.
The top order was reversed in the next race as Summerfield took the chequered flag ahead of Jenkins in a race interrupted by a red flag.
On a huge grid, consisting 17 trucks, Smith (pictured above) finished 10th overall but was first Class B driver home again.
The Grand Final went to Summerfield as he finished five and a half seconds ahead of Heinz-Werner Lenz. Richard Collett, a long way back, finished third while Jenkins’ hopes were ended after a first lap spin.
Smith again led the Class B trucks home to claim a trio of wins.
