IVECO is partnering with the FIA European Truck Racing Championship to support the #onetruckfamily campaign, launched to address the driver shortage and raise the profile and public perception of the profession.
The manufacturer will also be technical sponsor of ‘Die Bullen von IVECO’, the partnership between the Hahn Racing and Schwabentruck Teams. Team Hahn is represented by Jochen Hahn, who dominated the 2018 season in his Stralis with 12 wins out of 32 races, finishing 121 points ahead of the second-placed driver.
German driver Steffi Halm will return for a second season as team leader of the Schwabentruck Team. The only woman competing in the championship, she hopes to improve on her sixth position last year.
The Stralis 440E56 XP-R 5.3-tonne race truck is powered by a Cursor 13 engine that produces 1,180 hp and reaches 160 km/h – the maximum speed allowed by sporting regulations. IVECO will be present at each of the eight championship circuits and will have vehicle displays, fan shops and hospitality facilities in the various paddocks.
