KITCHENER, Ont. — The Central Ontario Regional Truck Driving Championships will be celebrating their 25th anniversary this year when they hold the annual competition June 12.
The event is slated to be held at Conestoga College’s Doon Campus with an awards ceremony to follow at the Kitchener Knights of Columbus Hall on Manitou Drive. Drivers will compete in three events: a written test; a vehicle inspection; and an obstacle course.
Five classes of competition will be held: straight truck; single-axle tractor with single-axle trailer; single-axle tractor with tandem-axle trailer; tandem-axle tractor with tandem-axle trailer; and B-train.
The top four drivers in each class will move on to compete in the provincials in Milton later in the year and winners from that event will then go on to compete in the National Truck Driving Championships to be held in Manitoba this fall.
