Going the Extra Mile

In 2015, the UD Trucks Extra Mile Challenge had six contestants, competing over three tasks designed to replicate the metro delivery experience. The judges examined and marked the driver by the amount of time taken, delivery accuracy, obeying the road rules, fuel efficiency and a smooth driving style with no harsh braking or acceleration.

The tests involved a pre-trip inspection, accurately reversing into a simulated loading dock and driving around the course at the Mount Cotton Training Centre in the suburbs south of Brisbane.

…And the winner is…John Murray from Origin Energy

Of course, it’s all bigger and better in the US. The competition takes place indoors!

But when it comes to great driving skills, this guy gets the guernsey!
