IVECO is crowned the overall winner of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship 2019 for the second consecutive year as technical sponsor of “Die Bullen von IVECO” – the partnership between Team Schwabentruck and Team Hahn.
Jochen Hahn, behind the wheel of his IVECO Stralis, won the title of FIA European Truck Racing champion for a remarkable sixth time and achieves the feat of winning at least one race in each event in 2019.
IVECO was once again crowned winner of the FIA European Truck Championship 2019, repeating its success of 2018.
It has dominated the 2019 Championship with the Die Bullen von IVECO Team, which took the lead right from the first event in Misano and maintained its position throughout the season to win the title with victory at the penultimate event in Le Mans, one week before the final Grand Prix in Jarama.
Thanks to the exceptional performance of Jochen Hahn, who clocked up 13 victories – at least one per event – and 18 more podium places, an IVECO driver finished in first place in the Drivers’ ranking, as he claimed the title of FIA European Truck Racing Champion for the sixth time.
Steffi Halm, in her second season as team leader of the Schwabentruck team, achieved a total of 11 podium places and improved on last year’s sixth place by finishing in fourth position in the overall Drivers’ ranking.
Gerrit Marx, President Commercial and Specialty Vehicles, commented: “We are very proud of the outstanding results achieved by the Die Bullen von IVECO Team in our Stralis trucks, which have proved once again their capacity to compete at the highest levels, reliably and consistently delivering winning performances. It was a great team effort of the many technicians, engineers and mechanics who have worked alongside the drivers, which has been rewarded with another title. Well done to all!”
IVECO has taken part in the FIA European Truck Racing Championship 2019 as technical sponsor of “Die Bullen von IVECO”, the partnership between the Hahn Racing and Schwabentruck teams. The latter has represented the brand for the past 10 years, while Team Hahn has competed on board a Stralis race truck for the third year running.
The brand supported the team with the Stralis 440E56 XP-R 5.3-tonne race truck powered by an IVECO Cursor 13 engine, built by FPT Industrial, that delivers an impressive 1,180hp. These vehicles are specifically designed and equipped to reach 160km/h, the maximum speed allowed by sporting regulations.
“Once again we are honoured to be the heart under the hood of Schwabentruck and Hahn Racing’s Stralis. Our Cursor 13, specially designed for the race, demonstrated a balance of performance and durability in challenging and demanding conditions – a perfect match for the talent of the teams,” said Annalisa Stupenengo, President of FPT Industrial. “This is further evidence of the excellence of our products.”
