Brian Ellis gets back behind the wheel of a Taylor’s HGV after a break of 26 years
The above images show Forest Town resident, 62 year old Brian and his step daughter Belinda with Rob Baker-Taylor’s Driver Training School Instructor.
We were thrilled to work with the team at Donington Park who helped make Brian’s dream come true. Also illustrated is the Donington Park – Heritage Loop.
In his younger days Brian worked as a HGV driver and travelled all over the world but he suffered his first heart attack at the age of 36 which abruptly ended his driving career.
Brian’s step daughter Belinda contacted Taylor’s and explained that one of Brian’s dreams was to get back behind the wheel of a HGV one day and with the help of Donington Park and our Trainer Rob Baker we were able to make Brian’s dream become a reality. Once Brian was familiarised with the controls of our Driver Training Vehicle – a 2017 Plate Volvo FM truck with a 44T box trailer he took no time at all putting the truck through its paces!
