About

Newell and Wright is a family business and our racing team is just the same. John Newell is our driver and was champion of Division 2 racing over 18yrs ago, the company came away from the racing scene but we returned with a stunning truck named Winnie after our founder Frank Newell’s mother. We have since built a new race truck with the support of Stefan Honens Racing Services, named Lagatha.

We have an impressive selection of sponsors who support us in a variety of ways, including a brilliant relationship with MAN who supplied a brilliant D26 1200BHP engine, chassis and axles. Good year supply our racing tyres and Textar look after all our breaking technology. All of our sponsors can be found on the truck and in our publicity. We welcome support from truck lovers, companies, families and are always pleased to meet and greet supporters at the races. John has plenty of photographs with fans and the team are always happy to answer questions and enquiries. We are in truck racing because we love trucks, we love haulage and the community that comes with it.
