Scania announces its Young UK Truck Driver of 2015

Jun 02, 2015
Chris Brooker-Carey of Barrowford, near Burnley, Lancashire, has won the UK Final of Scania's 2015 Young European Truck Driver competition.

As such, he now holds the title Young UK Truck Driver of the Year.  This accolade secured him a place at the European Final of the event which took place at the home of Scania in Södertälje, Sweden over the weekend of 25-27 April, 2015. 

Organised by Scania and supported by Michelin, Young European Truck Driver is the world's largest road safety and driving skills competition.  The event has been designed to promote and encourage the highest standards of road-craft. 

In finishing first, Chris Brooker-Carey fought off challenges from seven other contenders, who had been shortlisted following a challenging online theory test.  As the UK winner, Chris received a cheque for £500, a magnum of champagne, a Driver's Goodie Bag courtesy of Michelin, and a place at the European Final with contestants from 20 other European nations.

Immediately after collecting the winner's trophy Chris said:  "I'm speechless, excited and very determined – I'll do everything I can to ensure I give it my best shot.  I'm looking forward to the European Final immensely, in fact I can't wait to get on the plane to Sweden!"
