The 50th anniversary of Western Star Trucks has been marked in memorable fashion in Brisbane with last weekend’s Show n Shine event.
Organised by Penske Commercial Vehicles, the event brought together Western Star owners, drivers and enthusiasts and has been dubbed a stellar success!
Held at the Mt Cotton Training Centre, over $50,000 worth of prizes was awarded across a range of categories.
KS Easter’s customised 200th truck took out both the ‘Truck of the Show’ and the ‘Best Western Star under 5 years’ awards.
Other awards went to Corbet’s Group (best truck under 10 years), North QLD Truck & Machinery Movements (best truck over 10 years), and Vince Humphreys (best Best Western Star Tipper).
Kevin Dennis, Managing Director of Penske Commercial Vehicles, says it was a fantastic day.
“We know how passionate Western Star owners are, so it was a pleasure to host the Show n Shine and have such a great turnout of owners and drivers and their families and friends.
“Direct customer events, such as Show n Shine, not only allow customers to provide their feedback on the product range and how we can work with them to maximise support, but also provide a great opportunity for fleet operators and owner drivers to network with each other.
“We also had fantastic support from our suppliers and sponsors who helped to make it the great day it was.
“We are already working to make the 2018 Show n Shine even better!”
