KITCHENER, Ont. — The Central Ontario Regional Truck Driving Championships will be held June 11 this year, with the top placing drivers winning a spot in the provincial championships where they’ll vie for the opportunity to represent Ontario at the nationals.
This year marks the 26th anniversary of the CORTDC, which will take place at Conestoga College’s Doon Campus with an awards ceremony to follow at the Kitchener Knights of Columbus Hall.
Participating drivers will have to complete a written test, a vehicle inspection and then navigate a challenging obstacle course. Categories include: straight truck; single axle tractor/single axle trailer; single axle tractor/tandem axle trailer; tandem axle tractor/tandem axle trailer; and B-train.
Organizers say the top four drivers in each category will move on to the provincial championships. Awards will also be presented for Grand Champion; Safety Award; Rookie of the Year; and the Team Award.
