Iveco presents its new racing trucks

Iveco has lifted the lid on its new S-Way R racing trucks that have been specially prepared for Team Hahn Racing and Team Schwabentruck.

The reveal took place on the test rack at Iveco’s heavy-duty truck manufacturing and research and development centre in Ulm, Germany.

Drivers Jochen Hahn from Team Hahn Racing and Steffi Halm from Team Schwabentruck put their new trucks through their paces on the test track, demonstrating the powerful performance of the vehicles. The event was also livestreamed on Iveco’s Facebook page, so that the teams’ sponsors, colleagues and fans were able to join in.

The presentation of the Iveco S-Way R trucks follows five months of development and testing. The new racing trucks benefit from all the advanced design and engineering features of the Iveco S-Way range launched in 2019 – from the cab that combines functionality and comfort, to the optimised aerodynamics that reduce the Cx drag coefficient by as much as 12 percent and deliver up to four-percent fuel savings.

My friends call me a glomad (a global nomad lest you don’t get it). That’s a particularly apt word, because I am always trawling all corners of the globe, looking for stories. As a result, I have slept in some seriously strange places – on a bed of ice in the Arctic circle, on the floor in a traditional Japanese hotel, on the sand dunes in the Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan … and even on the floor of a Thai cargo ship. Mostly however I tend to sleep on aircraft (if I had a dog, he would bark at me when I eventually come home). I am passionate about trucks, cars, travel, food, wine, people and hugs – so I write about all these things. Except the hugs.
