SAR Legends shine at Colac Truck and Ute Show

This year’s Colac Truck and Ute Show went down a treat, with over 100 trucks and 3,000-4,000 people descending on Colac Showgrounds in Victoria last Saturday, April 6.  

Truckies travelled from far and wide to display their rigs, with show organiser Daniel Williams saying the judging panel had their work cut out for them.  

But it looks like the judges had a soft spot for one particular model of truck, as Zac Cornwill scooped the top prize with his 2023 Kenworth W900 SAR Legend, and Land Transport’s 2020 SAR Legend wasn’t far behind, in second place for Truck of the Show.  

Both first and second place for Best Truck 0-5 Years were also SAR Legends, owned by Mick Lenehan and Josh Dowie.  

Williams said there was a “great atmosphere” in the showgrounds on the day, with plenty of family fun.  

“We had live music from 11am to 6pm, and plenty of kids’ entertainment, from jumping castles to face painting to mini golf,” he said.  

“It was a real family-friendly day and there was something for everyone. 

“The way we set up this year was much better than last year, and we got a lot of positive feedback.”

The Colac Truck and Ute Show is a collaboration of the Colac Fire Brigade and Colac SES Unit to raise funds for equipment and facility upgrades.  

Williams said that the committee are still tallying up the numbers, but they estimate that they have raised approximately $25,000 this year.
