BRITAIN'S TOUGHEST TOWCAR test is how we sum up the Towcar Awards. Now in its sixth year, the event is growing in stature and really does test the latest towcars to the absolute limit.

The Towcar Awards is a partnership between the Camping and Caravanning Club, What Car? and Practical Caravan and testing takes place in April each year at the MIRA proving ground in Warwickshire.

BRITAIN'S TOUGHEST TOWCAR test is how we sum up the Towcar Awards. Now in its sixth year, the event is growing in stature and really does test the latest towcars to the absolute limit.

 

The Towcar Awards is a partnership between the Camping and Caravanning Club, What Car? and Practical Caravan and testing takes place in April each year at the MIRA proving ground in Warwickshire.

 

Rather than describe the tests, we thought we'd be better off showing you, so we've compiled a video of this year's testing.

 

The results of the testing are announced on June 14th but to see the full results of every one of the tested cars, pick up the August issue of Practical Caravan from 22nd June.

 

The results will also be published In Camping and Caravanning and in What Car?.
