What's the Challenge?
Volvo Trucks Driver Challenge is a way for operators and drivers to learn what good driving behaviours mean and how they impact on the fuel used. Working in conjunction with our Fuelwatch Seminars, through our extensive dealer network or via national fleet sales, the challenge is of a global scale.
The Volvo Trucks Driver Challenge is a global competition, open to both Volvo Truck and non Volvo customers but who operate anything from one truck to a fleet of hundreds.
A nominated driver from each participating operator company will go head to head through regional heats and demonstrate how, with improved driving skills, every drop counts
both in the environmental impact and bottom line! Driver Challenge Winner
Jim Whitmore, who drives for Dairy Crest in the Midlands, has taken the top spot of the ten finalists who competed to win the Volvo Trucks Driver Challenge.
The final which took place at Warwick, was the culmination of a six month programme in which 93 drivers from the UK and Ireland competed for a place in the top ten.
As the overall winner for the UK and Ireland, Jim Whitmore will now compete against the best truck drivers in Europe for a place at the global final which will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden on the 22nd October.
