It is not a recoverz truck. I suspect that it is an artillery tractor for the FH70 155mm howitzer.
Note the cabin for the gun crew and the rear mounted crane for unloading ammunition. The M Suffix of the registration suggests that it was with the army from about August 1974.If the date of coming into service can be confirmed, then the civilian registration will also refelect this.

Thanks Roger.
I must have misunderstood the commentator on the show. There where many vehicles running around in the arena at the same time!
Regards,
Alf
