Fans of roaring engines and giant trucks are gearing up for a huge weekend as a festival celebrating the machines descends on the county.

Truckfest will take to the South of England showground in Ardingly this weekend and festival organisers say people can expect "lots of trucks" throughout the duration of the event.

From modern machines to American classics the festival will be able to fascinate people of all ages, they state.

The main arena will play host to the monster truck "slingshot". Rides inside a monster truck will also be available.

Bob Limming, event director of Truckfest said: "Whenever we ask our visitors why they come to Truckfest the reply is always the same: 'We’ve come for the Trucks'.

"We promise you we will still have lots of trucks at Truckfest South East."

Festivalgoers are being urged to book their tickets online for easy access to the event.
