There are quite a few events for trucks and their drivers in our country and abroad. We have selected some of the most interesting ones that will probably take place in 2021. Everything, of course, depends on the epidemiological situation.
We will present events that can be attended by both professional truck drivers and people who simply want to see unique machines live. The events have also been prepared for fans of tuned trucks. Check out what awaits you in the near future!
IFA Truck Rally
This is something for fans of classics when it comes to trucks. The event took place in 2019, in 2020 it unfortunately did not take place due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is very possible that it will be held again in 2021! The rally consisted of driving 1000 kilometers together. The IFA-Tours ran from Nordhausen to Peenemünde. Every driver of an “old” truck had to drive this route, but not everyone made it. Several vehicles broke down and did not make it to the finish line. The participants stopped along the way at places such as the IFA truck museum in Nordhausen, or in the town of Ludwigsfelde, where these machines were also manufactured. At the end there was of course a feast on the German island of Usedom.
IAA Commercial Vehicles Exhibition
This is the largest event of its kind in Europe. This year it was to be held in Hannover on 24-30 September. Due to a pandemic, unfortunately it did not take place. The next one is planned for 2022 – it is worth waiting for it! For a whole week at the event you can see the largest and most modern trucks, which have not yet done even one kilometer. These are machines from manufacturers such as MAN, SCANIA, MERCEDES-BENZ or VOLVO. Each vehicle has an open door, you can enter and see the cabin filled to the brim with electronics and the latest technical solutions. This is a commercial vehicle fair, so in addition to trucks you can also see, among other things, coaches.
Miss Scania Pomeranian
Despite the pandemic this year, Pomeranian Miss Scania took place – but the form was a little different, because the applications for the contest were accepted online. So everything took place via the Internet. What is the event about? Every year for 20 years the event attracts fans of heavy commercial vehicles. It takes place at the company’s branch in Gdansk. Every year the number of participants increases. The most interestingly finished trucks are presented there. This year the winner was for example the one with the image of rapper Chada. It has always been a rally with a picnic and fun – but this year was different. Let’s hope that in the next edition everything will be back to normal.
Baltic Truck Festival
An event that in 2021 will take place from June 18 to 20 (Friday to Sunday). What will you see during the event? Real gems from the world of commercial vehicle tuning. This is obviously the main attraction, but not the only one. You can also look forward to concerts and dance parties, performances by famous DJs, competitions or TSL industry trade fairs. There will be plenty of delicious food in a large catering zone. Patrons of the event include: LOTOS Group, ENERGA and DCT Terminal. This is one of the largest events of its kind in our country.
Master Truck Show
By many people Master Truck Show is considered the biggest and best automotive event in Poland. It is an exhibition and recreational event. Every year it attracts spectators and participants from our country, but also from all over Europe. It is worth mentioning that you will find here not only tuned trucks. Waiting for you are also the latest machines from well-known manufacturers. Also, many companies from across the continent advertise their services at this event. The show is three days with motoring, games, competitions, fairs, shows and exhibitions. You can take part in the event as a spectator, but that is not all. You have the opportunity to showcase your truck and your company. This year the event was held July 17-19. If the epidemic doesn’t derail organizers’ plans, the Master Truck Show will also take place in 2021.
