In Kenworth, News2 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineJuly 13, 2023

Registrations for the Kenworth 100 celebration next year are set to open today, Thursday 13 July.

Southpac Trucks confirmed celebrations to mark the brand’s 100 year worldwide milestone earlier this month.

Taking place on 3 February 2024 at Mystery Creek, the Kenworth-only show is set to eclipse any single brand truck show ever staged – including the 301 Kenworth turnout hosted by Southpac at Baypark in 2014.

“We’ll be celebrating 100 years of Kenworth with the people, the stories and the gear that made the brand famous,” said general sales manager Richard Smart. “Don’t miss your chance to be part of this epic celebration!”

With a huge nine-hectare footprint set aside for the show, there is room for up to 1500 trucks.

Southpac advises the following entry dates and times for parking:

  • Thursday 1 February 10am to 9pm
  • Friday 2 February 10am to midnight
  • No entry or truck movements on Saturday 3 February until 7pm when trucks can exit from the site

Full details including the parking plan and terms and conditions will follow.

There will be prizes across a range of categories, and those bringing a truck will receive a special 100-year commemorative pack on arrival.

“Kenworth owners are known to be passionate about the trucks they run,” Smart said.

“We want to bring them together in one place to celebrate the best of the brand by hosting this show.”
