The British Truck Racing Association Championship (BTRAC) got off to a dramatic start over the Easter Bank holiday weekend with races for both Division 1 and 2 packed with dramatic clashes on the track. This year BTRA has decided to install SmartWitness video camera systems in all competing race trucks and the footage was used by the judges across the weekend was breathtaking.
Highlights from the weekend were BTRA Division 1 champion Ryan Smith stealing first place in the first race from rival Dave Jenkins. You can see video footage of the over take below. Link to footage here https://youtu.be/kHi2haGLKio

After the race Ryan Smith said: “He didn’t see it coming, I knew where it was going to happen, I spent a lap and a half guaging him, and then went for the move. It looks good on this SmartWitness footage but if it goes wrong you’re in big trouble.
“When I came into the main straight I’d already prepared this a lap before. I showed him where I was going to go the lap before, backed out of it just to check it out and then I made a move onto the inside to make it look like I was going to have a go, then went back to the outside and the minute he hit his brakes I stay on the accelerator for a second.”
In the last Division 1 race of the day there was high drama at Druids as Ryan Smith took an aggressive line into the corner and spun across the track which cost him the race. His rival David Jenkins seized this opportunity to come in on the inside to win the race, with John Newell coming in second, and Ray Coleman third. Ryan Smith fought back to fifth place after losing a lot of ground due to the spin.
