Volvo is asking "Are you the one?" in it's Volvo Trucking Adventure competition

Volvo driver competition offers road trip of a lifetime
Volvo is offering one lucky winner the chance to win an epic road trip

Volvo is offering drivers in selected countries the chance to win "the road trip of a lifetime".

Starting from the company's base in Gothenburg, the lucky winner will drive one of the Swedish truck maker's rigs and embark on a Nordic adventure encompassing 2000km of roads on the way to the final destination in North Cape, Norway, the most northern point of mainland Europe.

Unfortunately for Aussie and Kiwi drivers (among other nationalities excluded) all you can do is watch the YouTube video of some of the most glorious Nordic roads on offer and daydream because the competition is open only to drivers in some European countries  along with Morocco, South Africa, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Taiwan.

It's a strange mix of countries and you could be forgiven for thinking this is because Sweden and Norway – where the trip will take place – drive on the right, but several of the eligible countries drive on the left, just like we do in Australia. Go figure.

The competition will be drawn on 1 July this year with the trip taking place beginning 15 September.

The decision will be made by a jury from Volvo Trucks who will choose drivers based on applications made via the form on Volvo Truck markets web pages. Volvo says the decision from the jury will take many aspects into consideration, such as (but not limited to) personal answers and photo, the driver’s trucking experience, etc with the decision from the jury final and cannot be appealed against.

If you are reading OwnerDriver in one of the eligible countries get your application in and let us know how you go.
