Combination of man and truck: a test of driving skills

The drivers drive the trucks from the starting point, go forward, crosse the range line and stop the truck in the designated position horizontally. They are required to move the truck in a limited space and then reverse the truck into the key position longitudinally.

Strength competition: who is going to save more fuel
