What Can I Expect

Go American truck driving at Goodwood and get behind the wheel of a big rig! From the highways of the US of A, to the glory of Goodwood's famous track, these amazing trucks are total crowd pleasers wherever they go.

These experiences give you the chance to actually drive one of these iconic American trucks. The very proud owner operates a fleet of show-winning rigs, including Peterbilts and the Kenworth W900 series. They are all instantly recognisable with that long, long bonnet, which makes them so different to the artics you see on the roads here everyday.

Driving one of these transatlantic kings of the freeway is a bit different to how you might imagine. If the truck you're driving has an Eaton Fuller Road Ranger gearbox, changing gear is a case of 'clutch to neutral, clutch to gear'. But don't worry, all experiences include a driver briefing to give you all the inside trucker info.

Now you know how to get in (and out of) these super big rigs, learnt about the controls, have an understanding of track etiquette and heard the safety dos and don'ts, you're ready to go trucking at Goodwood. Your gleaming Kenworth or Peterbilt will be warmed up and waiting. This is your moment to savour as you go all-American trucking.

We are offering the standard truck drive, which gives you one lap of the 2.4-mile circuit, or two full laps on the extended experience. An expert American truck driver will be out on the Goodwood circuit with you at all times helping you make the most of your experience.

Teens can take part too, with a Junior programme for 15 to 17yr olds to drive a big F650 pick up truck. All American with the bulk and the weight, but with an automatic gearbox!

What makes this particular American truck drive special is Goodwood. It's such an iconic venue. The 12,000 acre estate really is the home of sport, with everything from the motorsport circuit and airfield, to the golf club and horse racing. Goodwood is the place to be and on these experiences you'll be able to check out what else is happening on the day and even picnic in the grounds.

These showcase American truck driving events at Goodwood are really popular and book up fast, as dates are quite rare, so book now and get ready to drive big!
