Friday 27th March 2015 will see the launch of a brand new industry awards ceremony; The Heavies Awards.

In conjunction with the Heavy Transport Association (HTA), The Heavies Awards will seek to reward those organisations (large or small) making a significant contribution to the effective and efficient running of the UK heavy transport industry.

Hosted by Quentin Wilson, TV personality, motoring journalist and campaigner for Fairfuel UK, The Heavies will celebrate the achievements of the industry operators, escorters, industry figures, policy makers, buyers and suppliers; recognising innovation, outstanding service, efficiency and quality. To win or to be shortlisted shows that you have achieved the very highest standard, as judged by an international panel of industry experts.

Old friendships are rekindled and new ones forged as guests and award winners get together to talk about the wonderful and important industry that means so much to everyone involved, whilst networking amongst the most influential decision makers responsible for running the industry.

Set in the magnificent surroundings of the newly renovated Hangar 42, Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, Leicestershire.

Bruntingthorpe offers an impressive 6.5km circuit which is 60m wide and 3.2km straight, one of the longest in the country and the original home of Top Gear. The Heavies will have use of the track during the day of the awards for event sponsors to showcase products and entertain customers.
