National Truck Driver Championship
TR Group has always believed in giving back to the community, and in that spirit, we’ve decided to support a group that’s very important to us – Kiwi heavy vehicle operators. So we’re proud to announce that we’ve taken on a three-year sponsorship of the Road Transport Forum (RTF) New Zealand Truck Driver Championship.
Andrew Carpenter, TR Group Managing Director says, “TR Group have been working with Kiwi businesses and their drivers for over 20 years and we know what’s needed to make operating heavy vehicles a success. This sponsorship emphasizes TR Group’s ongoing support for the industry and our desire to support safe driving.
Furthermore it shows TR Group’s continued commitment to lessen environmental impact and to improve vehicle safety throughout the country. We look forward to being part of the New Zealand Truck Driver Championship and we’re keen to ensure it remains a sustainable ongoing annual event. This sponsorship is a proud moment for TR Group”.
The championship is all about the drivers. As RTF CEO Ken Shirley says, “This is an exciting new initiative which is geared at recognising and rewarding the professionalism of commercial road freight drivers and enhancing their standing and that of the road freight industry itself”.
The sponsorship will see TR Group contributing $35,000, including a $5,000 prize to the overall winner that will be matched dollar for dollar by the RTF. As well as the financial support, TR Group will be providing all the required vehicles for both the regional and national events.
