Gabriel Warde crowned Scania Young European Truck Driver 2012

  • By Rikki Chequer

Ireland’s Gabriel Warde has won the Scania Young European Truck Driver 2012 (YETD) competition.

The final was held in Södertälje, Sweden, on Saturday afternoon [8 September] and attracted close to 10,000 spectators. Warde as victor will receive a new Scania R-series, at a value of €100,000 (£80,000).

In total, 24 countries were represented with tests including defensive and fuel-economy driving, cargo securing, check before driving, rescue and fire, and safe manoeuvering.

Erik Ljungberg, senior vice-president and head of Scania corporate relations, said: “There is only one who can call himself the best young truck driver in Europe but I think all 24 can call themselves winners.”

Scania YETD is a global initiative promoting responsible, safe driving. It was set up in 2003 to highlight the role of the driver, and to attract more young people into the driving profession.
