Iveco triumphs at the Truck Racing Championship!

Iveco has been crowned the overall winner of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship 2018. Team Hahn’s Jochen Hahn, driving his Iveco Stralis, was recently crowned FIA European Truck Racing Champion for an historic fifth time. Iveco dominated the 2018 season, with a total of 14 race wins.

Steffi Halm sealed sixth place in her debut season in the Iveco Truck#44 as new team leader of the Schwabentruck team. She was the only woman competing in the championship.

The Schwabentruck Team has represented the brand for the past nine years, while Team Hahn this year fielded a Stralis race truck for the second consecutive year.

The brand supported the team with two Stralis 440 E 56 XP-R 5,3-t race trucks powered by an Iveco Cursor 13 engine that delivers an impressive 880 kW (1 180 hp) and more than 5 000 Nm of torque. These vehicles are specifically designed and equipped to reach 160 km/h. Must be loads of fun to drive one!
