Billed as the tournament of “Brains and Brawn” the Brisbane Truck Show Apprentice Challenge is shaping up to be one of the most intriguing games of wits ever held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Six teams have been hand-picked to fight it out for line honours and reputations are hanging on the line as teams from Australia’s leading manufacturers take on the task of finding and fixing as many faults on two identical Scania G440 trucks in 45 minutes.
Hosted by charismatic Brisbane Truck Show Ambassador and former Rugby League champion Shane Webcke the apprentices and crowd will be kept entertained.
The question is will Scania’s best be able to lock out the competition or is the skill set of the other apprentices up to the task of working on any vehicle?
The Apprentice Challenge will be held every day of the Brisbane Truck Show May 16 to 19 with the grand final held on the final day of the Truck Show.
This year’s competitors are:
Jared Edwards (nominee for the 2012 CVIAQ Apprentice of the Year Awards)
Hastings Deering Truck Centres
MTU Detroit Diesel
Volvo Commercial Vehicles Brisbane
The Brown & Hurley Group
