With the sun shining, the annual event held by Ocado to celebrate their safest, best drivers of the year was up and running. Driver Require’s annual sponsorship of Ocado’s Driver of the Year event was packed full of fun, boasting fast cars, vans and lorries – it did not disappoint! 

The Driver Require team this year was made up of CEO, Kieran Smith, National Accounts Director, Kerry Gevaux, Marketing Manager, Sarah Fowke, Mike Beard, Account Manager and our very own LGV hero and RC expert, Ian Datlen. We were all lucky enough to be treated to some serious driving thrills, including a ride in the Aerial Atom 3 which has the engine from a Honda Civic, boasting 0-60 in 3 to 4 seconds – the top speed is quoted at 155mph! 

Whilst the drivers were testing their track skills, the Driver Require team were busy testing the best of Ocado’s drivers to reverse manoeuvre a to-scale replica Class One lorry into a narrow parking bay. Our winner was Nathan Richards from Dartford who did it brilliantly in in an all-time record just over 16 seconds. Nathan took home a £150 Amazon Gift Voucher.

We nominated Cleveland Sallaby who predominantly works from our Ocado Hatfield branch, as our LGV Driver of the Year for his loyalty, willingness, friendliness and for being not only a superb Class 1 driver, but also a great representative of the company. He is always willing to help if we need cover in Erith and will do this without complaint and with a smile on his face.
