Three category winners have now been selected, with trophies going to:

The winning trucks will also take pride-of-place on the DAF Trucks stand at Truckfest ’21 in Peterborough over the end-of-August Bank Holiday weekend.

The Best Show Truck winner is an 80-tonne DAF XF 530 FTS in the colours of JL Cox (Cranes) Ltd., “I was absolutely bowled-over when I got the call from DAF,” said driver, Jason Coles, “The truck does a lot of specialist heavy work and it can get pretty filthy. We spent quite a bit of money on making it look the part, so it deserves to be seen in all its glory. I take a lot of pride in looking after it,” he said.”
