Calling all Vintage & Classics to first ever Connacht Truck Show 2018

Vintage and Classic truck owners are invited to display their cherished vehicles at the first ever Connacht Truck Show 2018 to be held at the 100th Claremorris Agricultural Show at the Old Racecourse venue on the Castlebar Road, also on Sunday 5 August, in association with Capitalflow and Western Truck & Trailer Parts (Claremorris).


To date the event has attracted huge interest from the road transport fraternity across the Province and beyond, with bookings from British-based hauliers crossing the Irish Sea to proudly display their working and vintage trucks in the West.


“A special dedicated parking area for the associated trade stands and vintage and classic display trucks has been allocated at the venue with a separate entrance for the exhibitors, which will be open from 7 a.m. on the Sunday for the one-day event,” explained Jarlath Sweeney, Fleet Transport on behalf of the organising committee.


“Interested parties are urged to register in advance of the event in order to assure entry for the static display element which is open to tractor-units and rigids only,” advised Jarlath.


“Special branded prize packs will be presented to the best turned out truck marque with the overall Top Truck Award dedicated in memory of the late legendary truck driver Paddy Kelly to be presented on the day also.”
