Western Star’s Aussie 1 named ‘Truck of the Show’

Award winners at the Brisbane Truck Show proudly displayed their trophies on stands following the presentation ceremony at a cocktail party hosted by Show Ambassador and Rugby League legend Shane Webcke.

According to the jury, exhibits at show were all of an “extremely high standard” making the judging a difficult process. Winners were all congratulated by the CVIAQ for presentation and quality and President Bob Martin commented, “It is a credit to the industry.”

The winners for 2013 were:

  • Risk Management Excellence: J Smith and Sons 
  • Outstanding Vehicle Component & Equipment Display: Detroit Australia
  • Outstanding Trailer / Truck Body Manufacturer Display: O’Phee Trailers
  • Outstanding Truck Manufacturer Display: CAT Trucks
  • Truck of the Show: Western Star Trucks Australia for its 4900 FXC prime mover ‘Aussie 1’

Judges highly commended Volvo Trucks Australia, the Eaton Vehicle Group and Cummins South Pacific plus the Volvo FH which narrowly missed out on the Truck of the Show Award.
