Used Trucks by Renault Trucks, the French manufacturer’s recently launched pre-owned vehicle programme, will be making its Convoy in the Park debut at Donington Park this weekend, along with other brand highlights.
Renault Trucks will be showcasing two Range T460 6×2 tractor units in Convoy in the Park’s Used Trucks at this weekend’s, both available for immediate purchase.
Peter Tye, Used Trucks director, said: “The showing will be similar to what we did at Truck Fest in Peterborough, but on a smaller scale. The deals on offer will be normal Renault deals, but the main aim is to increase brand awareness.
“We’d like to have a go at persuading people away from other brands, as we believe we have a great range of products.”
Alongside this, Renault Trucks’ main stand will feature the limited-edition T520 High Sport 6×2 Pusher which features the Renault Sport F1 Team’s Sirius yellow paint scheme.
Powered by a 13-litre DTi engine and 12-speed automated transmission, only ten right-hand drive variants were made for the UK market, so getting up close up to one will be a treat! Further to this, MTHL Racing’s Renault Premium truck will also be on show, piloted by Graham Powell.
Renault Trucks will show-off another special guest, the ruby red special-edition T520 High, marking 40 years of the brand’s presence in the UK.
A Range C430 tridem tipper with a PPG insulated aluminium aggregate body will be on display which, Renault Trucks claims, is a vehicle suited to “operators looking for the manoeuvrability of a six-wheeler with the load capacity of an eight wheeler”, due to having a factory-fitted third rear axle.
Customer vehicles will also feature courtesy of East Midlands dealer, RH Commercial Vehicles, which will be displaying Jon Waddoups’s and W. Coy & Son’s Range T Highs of which one is a 6×2 tractor with mini midlift axle.
The company will be continuing to promote the ‘#proudprofessionals’ campaign at Donington. Started in 2017, it aims to promote the work of individuals within the brand. Over the weekend there will be a competition to win Renault Trucks ‘Drivers are Heroes’ merchandise through this initiative.
