TRUCKFEST IS THE MUST SEE SHOW
Wow! Truckfest Peterborough saw the most amazing turnout on all fronts at this year’s May day weekend get-together, never in the history of the event have so many visitors attended the East of England Showground. Over 2500 trucks came together to produce a record attendance from all sectors of the Road Haulage Industry. Our judges were spoilt for choice with the standard of those competing in the various categories.
One thing is for sure, when it comes to celebrities, it doesn’t get better than the Lizard Lick Krew! There are no other celebrities that the Truckfest organisation has worked with that give as much of themselves as our visitors from North Carolina do. The good news is they are to be found at each of the Truckfest events in 2015.
Whilst speaking of Lizard Lick, the fantastic trip to the USA was decided at Truckfest Peterborough with an unbelievable amount of entries the DAF Trucks sponsored event in conjunction with Trucking and Custom Car Magazines, saw lucky winner James Gowler realise his dream of visiting North Carolina, where his Kenworth truck was first registered, and of course to participate in the Lizard Lick Festival in October and sample some good old fashioned Lizard Lick hospitality! Runners up can be found here.
Helping to make 2015 a memorable Truckfest as well was the presence of what we have termed, ‘The Magnificent Seven’ all of the major heavy truck manufacturers were in attendance, and so many of our visiting operators and drivers have commented on superb displays they all put together. Another innovation for this year’s event was the participation of our headline sponsor, ProTruck, with the commercial vehicle auction which took place on Friday 1st. Having subsequently spoken to ProTruck, this is a feature that is set to continue. It’s always great to see so many old friends at the event and all of us, on the Truckfest team, would like to take this opportunity of thanking everyone who took part in and visited the event, it means a lot to us but it’s obvious it also means a lot to you.
Roll on the rest of the Truckfest events, there’s a Truckfest near you!!
