Charleen ClarkeTruck Test 2017 was utterly awesome! That’s not just my opinion; it’s shared by the participants in general

The Truck Test programme concluded at a lunch in Johannesburg recently, where the highly anticipated results were announced. The lunch was extremely well attended; there wasn’t a spare seat in the house!

Martin Dammann, director of TruckScience, did a superb job of explaining the results and how they were calculated. (Go to to check them out.)

I’m delighted to tell you that the feedback from all the guests and participants in the event was overwhelmingly positive. Here are just some of the comments we have received:

“Thank you for affording MAN Truck & Bus the opportunity to participate this year again. It is always a pleasure to work with you and your team. The event is world class and the organisation is most professional.

“Team MAN certainly achieved what we wanted this year, and are very happy with our results. Especially the TGS 26.480 6x4 BLS result, which is most pleasing as the top performer in the interlink category. We will be extending our success story in this regard over the next months. We are proudly part of it all!” – Dave van Graan, head of special sales projects at MAN Truck & Bus South Africa.
