Stockholm, Sweden -- The Scania Driver Competitions 2010 was launched this week, starting a year long search across 28 countries to find the world's best truck drivers. Over 45,000 drivers are expected to enter throughout the year.
â€œThe driver is the single most important factor for economy, environment and safety. Skilled and committed drivers will deliver energy efficient transport, reduce emissions and contribute towards safer roads,â€ says Leif Ã–stling, President and CEO, Scania.
Eighteen countries will host their own Young European Truck Driver competition (YETD 2010), the European version of the Scania Driver Competitions. Winners of each national YETD competition will then go on to compete for the overall YETD title at a European Final in SÃ¶dertÃ¤lje, Sweden on 8-9 October 2010. Professional drivers who have the skills and determination to meet the challenges of the competition are being urged to enter via the website (see link below).
