Jon takes great pride in his Volvo FH13 6x2 Tractor Unit, which took to the road for the first time in September 2013.

Approximately 400 trucks took part in the two day show, and this was the first time that MJ Abbott's truck has won an award.

Jon prepared the truck meticulously for the event, which is no mean feat considering he is out on the road every day of the working week, delivering MJ Abbott's fleet of specialist construction equipment across the UK. Every part of the vehicle was cleaned and polished, including the inside of the exhaust outlet and in between the twin wheels on the rear axle.

Commenting on his award, Jon said: "Standards were very high this year and I am very proud to have come second - I'm going to have to put in some serious effort next year. I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at MJ Abbott who makes it possible for me to attend these shows."
