Rebranded Newcastle Hunter Truck Show hoping for record turn-out

The 24th annual Newcastle Road Transport Awareness Day will be held this Saturday, 22 October, under the new name of Newcastle Hunter Truck Show.

The re-branded truck show will also move from its former home in Newcastle to the Maitland Showgrounds to allow a 'much larger truck show', including a parade that is expected to attract more than 100 prime movers.

Road Transport Awareness Group Chairman, Pete Black, said that the event would be much bigger than previous years due to the support of the truck and transport industry.

“A new committee has continued to reinvigorated the event to accommodate increased interest from the industry and the community with lots more entertainment, food and importantly one of the country’s most extensive collection of trucks on show,” Black said.

The event was established in 1992 as a way for the local road transport sector to raise awareness of its work while encouraging safer driving on our roads. The event supports the work of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and has raised more than $1.3 million dollars in the past 24 years.
