Return of the Operator Challenge

Digger Blogger | 07:00, Thu April 05 2018

The Caterpillar Operator Challenge is back for 2018 after a four year absence and is touring the country.

It is organised by Cat distributor Finning, who are inviting the best operators from across the UK & Ireland to register to take part and show what they can do with the new Cat 320 excavator.

There are seven local events in the UK and Ireland total, with the launch event in Ashford on Tuesday 17th April, culminating in Chesterfield on 2nd May. The full list is below. Each event is at a Finning branch.

UK finalists will win a flight to the finals in Malaga during October to compete with other finalists from across Europe and Turkey.  The winner who will be crowned Operator of the Year will win a trip for two to the USA.
