Among the many “truck com­pe­tent” com­pa­nies present was Washtec, with a no­tably fast wash­ing sys­tem for com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles, Diesel Tech­nic with a com­pre­hen­sive prod­uct range for trucks, buses and trail­ers, in­clud­ing a re­place­ment parts range for the “Big 7” Euro­pean com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle brands and Bosch with truck parts and di­ag­nos­tic and ser­vic­ing equip­ment.

The or­gan­is­ers also went out of their way to show trucks in an­other light with dis­plays of rac­ing and tri­als trucks. There were ex­hibits by teams that race high­pow­ered trucks on road cir­cuits in Europe, as well as trucks that take part in rally-raids (like the Dakar Rally) and truck tri­als, which have cham­pi­onships in Europe.

The Dakar Rally was rep­re­sented by an 800hp Iveco Trakker of the Nether­lands-based De Rooy team, which won the truck cat­e­gory of the 2012 Dakar Rally. Its top speed is lim­ited to 150km/h.

Rac­ing and rally trucks were a big fea­ture of the ex­hi­bi­tion, left. Sup­pli­ers from all cor­ners of the world were present, be­low.
