FTA to hold first Van Excellence Driver of the Year competition

Taking place on Thursday 10th July 2014 at Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds, the FTA Van Excellence Driver of the Year contest is open to Van Excellence accredited operators, who have been invited to enter their best driver. 

The events for the day are designed to test the entrants’ abilities across a wide range of skills, and include a fuel economy run, driver behavioural feedback, risk awareness, pre-use defect checking and a knowledge test.  

The event will see Van Excellence Industry Partners ATS Euromaster, Hertz Van Rental and TomTom on hand to offer expertise on a variety of tasks which the drivers will undertake during the day. They will also be available at the Van Excellence Arena, where visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about the work of Van Excellence. 

Mark Cartwight, FTA’s head of vans, said: ‘This competition 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.’ 

Van Excellence accredited operators wishing to enter a driver can email [email protected] for an entry form. This will be on a first-come, first-served basis as the number of entrants is limited.
