After an 18-year break, John Newell is truck racing again. And he’s doing it in style in this Newell & Wright Motorsport Truck Racing MAN TGS.
“A lot has changed in my 18-year absence,” says truck racer John Newell, who at the time of writing sits fourth in the MV Commercial BTRA Championship. “I started racing in a Volvo FM, and I won the championship in a Ford Cargo. The difference between those trucks and this MAN is night and day.”
Newell explains that about the only thing that’s standard in his £250,000 MAN TGS race truck is the chassis. He says he has two employees working on the truck permanently, and that it takes between four and five days to get it looking as smart as it does in these photos after a race meeting.
