Driving Competition


The quest to find the Road Transport Forum's 2016 Truck Driving Champion is all set to begin. TR Group and TR Master Drive Services are proud to continue supporting this unique showcase of truck driving skill.

The 2016 New Zealand Truck Driving Championship kicks off on the 16th of April in Auckland. Qualification rounds continue in the Bay of Plenty, Waikato, Manuwatu, Canterbury and Otago. Winners of each competition class (including the Young Driver category) at these regional qualifiers will move on to compete at the 2016 New Zealand Truck Driving Championship final round, which will be held at ASB Baypark, Tauranga on Friday the 28th of October.

These events will be perfect for anyone with an interest in heavy transport, from people in the industry to those who just love trucks, so it’s ideal for kids too. 

And from a driver perspective, there’s $10,000 waiting for the champion, and a prize for the Young Driver of the Year. 

This is literally where the rubber meets the road, so if you haven’t entered yet, you should. It’s a chance to show off your skills, and you could win big! 

So if you think you have the skills to win, or know of anyone who you think has the goods to be crowned New Zealand’s top truck driver, then  enter now or share via your favourite social media platform.
