Scott Wrigley

Big Rigs - - TASSIE TRUCKIN’ -

IT WAS good to catch up with Scott Wrigley from Perth when he rolled in to the Ep­ping For­est Cal­tex for a cuppa and re­fresh­ment break the other day – a fair way from home.

He was driv­ing a Gradco 1995 Cherry red T-900 tip­per at the time.

Scott was tak­ing a wel­come break from work­ing on the new stretch of high­way at Ep­ping For­est it­self.

He tells us he has al­ways had a pas­sion for life be­hind the wheel and spent a life­time on the road, hav­ing left school and gone straight into log­ging.

“I only started here just be­fore Christ­mas,” he told Big Rigs.

“As I was work­ing in the gravel pit pre­vi­ously, but so far it seems to be a good job, and I cer­tainly like the truck, and I’ve got a good boss, and I reckon that’s a great start.”

In the rare amount of time off he gets, Scott told us he still likes to spend it be­hind the wheel, but of a smaller va­ri­ety keep­ing it busy rac­ing go-karts.
