The first ever Van Excellence Driver of the Year competition
- Created: 18 June 2014
Are you a Van Excellence accredited operator? If so, you have been welcomed by Freight Transport Association (FTA) to enter your best van driver into the first ever Van Excellence Driver of the Year contest.
The competition will be held on the opening day of Drive it, a new event at which van drivers are encouraged by the van manufacturing industry's big names to test out their vehicles. It begins on the 10th July, and ends on the 12th.
The contest will see drivers going head to head to test their safe driving skills at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire.
Exhibitors will also be present to show off their vehicles and to allow van operators to take them for test drives. Companies will include Ford, Citroën, Isuzu, and many other well-know manufacturers, as well as less well-known brands. You can view the full list of exhibitors by clicking here.
FTA head of vans Mark Cartwright, is looking forward to the competition and feels it is an important event. He states, "It gives us a terrific opportunity to show this vital sector of UK logistics in a positive light, and gain van drivers the recognition they deserve for their skill and the importance of the job they do."
