Stands and other space for 10,000 spectators are in place, as are the live studio, a ”green room” for the competitors, press area, VIP-tent, food courts, security and the exhibition area. The Scania Young European Truck Driver final area is almost completed.
“Now we´re waiting for the 26 finalists and a huge supporter crowd”, says Ann-Sofie Nyström, Project Coordinator at Scania Event and Exhibition.
In the huge competition area Stefan Erixon, Magnus Häger and Anders Karlsson, all from Scania DemoCentre, measure and mark the racetracks with millimetre precision. Their colleague Jonas Lundgren, normally working with cab testing at Scania Technical Centre, fills in the lines using a hand-held line marking machine.
“It takes many lines and a lot of thinking. You have to work with both brain and knees”, says Stefan Erixon.
