Hankook Tyre UK sponsored the Devon Truck Show and Cornwall Truck Gathering
Throughout summer 2021, Hankook Tyre UK was the exclusive and official tyre sponsor to the Devon Truck Show and the Cornwall Truck Gathering. Hankook joined fleet operators and owners in showcasing their innovative truck and bus expertise. These two action packed truck festivals showcased the very best of commercial vehicles in the UK, and soon became the highlight of the trucking year.
The Devon Truck Show
This family fun weekend included live entertainment and many visitor stands, Hankook sponsored two award categories during the show: ‘Best in Show Truck’ and ‘Best in Show Light Commercial’. Hundreds of trucks went head to head to win these prestigious awards.
Hankook not only exhibited some of our very best truck tyres but also provided a competition for visitors to take part in support of the show's chosen charity, the Devon Children's Hospice. Previously the Devon Truck show attracted over 7,000 visitors and Hankook were pleased to be part of this popular open air truck and bus tyre festival. The show's loyal following and large annual turn out brings together fleet operatives, owners and truck tyre specialists, as well as many visitors nationwide for what was the UK's biggest truck meet. The day included live entertainment and activities, featuring live music, stunt shows, trade stands and a chance to get up close to hundreds of the UK's finest trucks and buses.
The Cornwall Truck Gathering
At the Cornwall Truck Gathering, Hankook once again sponsored two award categories during the show: ‘Best in Show Truck’ and ‘Best in Show Light Commercial’. As well as stunt shows, trade stands, monster truck rides and recovery displays, a variety of trucks went head to head to get their names on these awards.
In support of the show's chosen charity, the Devon & Cornwall Air Ambulance, Hankook not only brought along some of our most sought after products, but also had a competition for visitors to take part in on Hankook's very own stand. The two day event hosted a variety of live entertainment, hospitality and a funfair. The truck gathering was also an exciting opportunity to get up close to hundreds of the industry's best trucks and buses.
