Truckie Profiles

Trucks to rally cars

Experienced driver Robert Crapp had stopped at a pullover area beside the New England Highway near Moonbi when Big Rigs saw him.

The 59-year-old was driving an Iveco Stralis 500 for Johnson and Kennedy Transport.

“I have gas bottles from Tamworth to take to Tenterfield,” he said.

Based at Armidale, Crapp loves the job and where he lives.

“My main jobs are around the north-west area of NSW,” he said.

Crapp likes stopping at the Moonbi Roadhouse.

I asked him to nominate the worst road he gets along. “It would have to be the Newell Highway which has lots of potholes,” he said.

His recreation outside work is to drive a rally car at various events.

“I have a 1979 Corolla and like it very much,” he said.

Crapp barracks for the St George Dragons in the NRL and the day I saw him was talking to an old truckie mate.
