Rockingham, one of the country’s motoring event venues, is launching a competition to name one of the world famous Eddie Stobart trucks.
Eddie Stobart offered Rockingham the once in a lifetime opportunity of naming a truck, after it successfully held its ‘Stobart Fest’ at the Northamptonshire race circuit. The event, which was the first of its kind, attracted crowds of more than 6,000 Eddie Stobart enthusiasts, some from as far afield as the United States. The event offered fans of the haulage company the unique opportunity to get close to some of the famous Eddie Stobart trucks and cast members from the Channel 5 documentary, Eddie Stobart: Trucks & Trailers.
There is usually a two-year waiting list to name one of the iconic trucks – and this offer is usually only open to members of the official Eddie Stobart fan club.
However, members of the general public can now register their suggestions at www.rockingham.co.uk/stobart, where a short-list of the best names will be published, for visitors to then pick their favourite. The winner will be the name which receives the most votes, the only criteria is that it must be a must be a double barreled female name such as Gracie-Mae.
Chief Executive of Rockingham, Charlotte Orton, said: "It is a great privilege to be given the chance to name an Eddie Stobart lorry. We have recently held our 10th Anniversary celebrations here at Rockingham so, to further commemorate the occasion, we wanted to offer this competition to our followers."
Closing date for entries to be submitted to the website is Friday, December 9.
