RENAULT TRUCKS TAKES RACING LINE AT CONVOY IN THE PARK 2019

Renault Trucks returns to Donnington Park, 10 and 11th August, for Convoy in the Park 2019 presenting a show-stopping line-up with a racing theme.

One of the top attractions to the Renault Trucks stand promises to be the Range T520 High Sport Limited Edition, striking in Sirius yellow paint – the iconic colour of the F1 Renault Sport Racing team – together with the black and check that forms the striking livery of all Renault Sports models.

Visitors will have the opportunity to view the T High Sport 6x2 Pusher TML equipped with a flat floor cab and an outstanding combination of space, comfort and well-appointed working and living areas appealing to both drivers and operators alike.  Performance comes from Renault Trucks’ 13-litre DTi engine rated at 520hp which is coupled to an Optidriver 12-speed automated transmission system.  With only ten T High Sports being made available in right hand drive form, this is a rare chance to see this prestige model up close.

Further enhancing the racing theme, MTHL Racing’s 11 litre Renault Premium race truck and driver Graham Powell will also be on the Renault Trucks stand.

Sharing the limelight on stand is a special edition Renault Trucks T520 High, resplendent in ruby red paintwork to celebrate 40 years of the Renault Trucks brand in the UK.

Additionally, East Midlands Renault Trucks dealer, RH Commercial Vehicles will be displaying some of its favourite customer vehicles on the stand. Alongside Jon Waddoups and W. Coy & Son’s T Highs there will be an 11-litre Range T 6x2 tractor unit with mini midlift, which offers significant payload advantages for cost-conscious operators and is ideal for aggregate or liquid applications with a factory-fitted PTO and tipping equipment.

The Renault Trucks stand will also feature a Range C430 Tridem with PPG insulated aluminium aggregate body carefully configured to suit a wide cross-section of multi-axle tipper operations. For operators looking for the manoeuvrability of a six-wheeler with the load capacity of an eight-wheeler, the Range C Tridem with factory-fitted extra axle adaption provides an effective solution. The Range C Tridem is powered by Renault Trucks’ efficient DTi 11 litre engine which produces 424hp and 2050 Nm of torque. Behind this is a 12 speed Optidriver automated transmission system.

Convoy in the Park is a great opportunity for Renault Trucks to continue the promotion of its #proudprofessionals campaign, which celebrates the valuable contribution made by everyone who works in the commercial vehicle industry.  Visitors are invited to join Renault Trucks at their stand and enter the exclusive #proudprofessionals competition to win official Renault Trucks ‘Drivers are Heroes’ merchandise.

Making its debut at Convoy in the Park’s Used Trucks Village, Used Trucks by Renault Trucks is proud to be displaying two Range T460 6x2 tractor units which will also be available to purchase.
