Jon prepared his Volvo FH13 6x2 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. Jon estimates he accumulated 24 hours of cleaning and polishing prior to the event.

Commenting on his award, Jon said: "The truck at three years old is still a major attraction to the general public and is considered as one of the top 20 vehicles on the show circuit. I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at MJ Abbott who makes it possible for me to attend these shows."
