The ERF after the obstacle speed challenge.

The ERF EC11 was the HGV that Richard Hammond drove during the lorry driving challenge (Series 12 Episode 1).

The lorry driving challengesEdit

During the personalising stage of the challenge, Hammond had painted the truck in blue and had added a front bonnet in the form of a dog kennal. The truck had also reached an astonishing 90mph on the Millbrook proving ground high speed bowl. The EC11 was later destroyed when Richard drove the lorry through a portakabin at 56mph.


The ERF EC11 had an 11 Litre engine and a 6 axle configuration. Hammond's truck was the Day Cab version and was considered as 'A Caterham of the lorry world'.
