DAF Trucks held a virtual truck show over the weekend where it named winners in three categories, all of whom will receive DAF Driver magazine trophies and professional photos that will appear in the magazine. Although it was originally intended to be a live show before the COVID-19 pandemic, the event received 700 entrants and 55,000 people followed along across DAF’s social channels.

And The Winners Are . . .

The winners across the three categories were Fred Forman of P&L Forman for Best Working DAF Truck, Stephen Rimmer of Hurst Bros. Ltd for Best Show DAF Truck, and Brian Callery, whose DAF 3300 ATi was named Best Classic DAF or Leyland Truck. The winners will receive a special recognition at this year’s Truckfest Peterborough, which is now scheduled to take place on 30 and 31 August. DAF also handed out 20 Truckfest tickets to runners-up.

DAF Delighted

“We were delighted with the reaction from drivers and owner-operators,” says Martin Pidsley, Social Media Manager for DAF Trucks. “55,000 hits over one weekend is a remarkable response. What has been clear after judging all the entrants, is the pride and passion that truck drivers have in their vehicles. We’re looking forward to seeing the winners’ trucks adorning the pages of DAF Driver magazine soon.”

You will find hundreds of new and used DAF trucks for sale on Truck Locator, including a large selection of CF, LF, and XF models.
