Excitement is mounting for what is set to be one of the largest Show and Shine competitions the International Truck, Trailer & Equipment Show 2016 has ever seen.
Promising some of the country’s most impressive customised trucks, Show Director, Simon Coburn, said he has been working with the team at Australian Custom Trucks to make the Show & Shine the richest event of its type in ITTES history, with the massive prize pool reaching over $30,000 in cash and prizes.
Equipment to be won includes a SAF-Holland aluminium fifth wheel plus fitting, Silverback Chrome Exhaust Stacks from Windsor Exhaust Centre, two Apollo Steer Tyres from Treadcare, and two Chrome Aluminium wheel and Drive tyre packages from Mesh# Accessories and Atlas Tyres.
Also up for grabs are two Hella 350mm LED Light Bars from lighting specialist Hella Australia (pictured below), which has recently diversified into braking with the addition of its Textar and Don aftermarket ranges.
Australian Custom Trucks publisher, Chris Smith, said the Show and Shine competition will be a major drawcard for the truck-loving public, who are invited to explore the Show on Saturday, 7 May.
“Custom trucks come in all shapes and sizes, but one thing they all have in common is they excite the next generation of transport workers. In that sense, it’s a great advertisement for the transport and logistics industry in general,” Smith said.
