Alexandra Truck Show
Alexandra Truck Show proved a popular destination for Victoria’s hottest looking trucks. The 18th annual Truck Ute & Rod Show in Alexandra, Victoria drew a record attendance.
“We are a free public event held in our main street Grant Street and surrounds so we really can’t calculate the total attendance,” Show President Matt Ellis reportedly said. “But we are confident on anecdotal evidence that it was a record attendance.”
There was a record 152 trucks that entered the show this year as well as utes and classic hotrods. Truck of the Show Award was claimed by Anthony Latorre with his Thorpe built Kenworth K200 which featured on the cover of the second issue of Australian Custom Trucks.
The Saturday event saw the official opening of the Victorian Truck Drivers Memorial in Rotary Park. The Memorial had been built as a community project with major support from transport industry sponsors and now has 60 names recorded by plaques on the memorial structure.
1. Tarrant Transport-Cranes & Transport had six prime movers. Four with tilt trays. Driver Grahame Olsson drives a 2014 Kenworth 909 rated at 155T which hauls over dimensional loads.
2. Frank and son Anthony Lattore won the Rig of the Show with the very popular Kenworth K200.
3. The Western Truck Towing Mack Super Liner 2006 with driver Disco was a crowd pleaser.
