Truckracing - TRO - European Truck Racing Championship

Ryan Smith - OXXO Print E-mail

New driver in the OXXO Race truck

A new driver is sitting in the OXXO Race truck in 2016. The British driver Ryan Smith is racing with the team in the British Championship. Norbert Kiss, the previous driver of the team will be racing for another team for the 2016 season in the ETRC after successfully winning the European Championship two times in a row.

With the new driver the main goal for the team is to win the British Championship. The team feels an obligation to participate in the ETRC as well and they work hard to make it happen. It is a very difficult situation since there is only a few weeks to the European season to start.
The British Championship starts this weekend where it turns out how the team performs in the different series.

Champion Norbert Kiss will drive for tankpool24 Mercedes this season

Norbert Kiss will turn out for a new marque and team this coming season. The twice European champ from Hungary has switched to the German tankpool24 Mercedes team run by MB Motorsport.
Kiss came to the FIA ETRC in 2011 after a successful career in touring-car racing, taking his compatriot Zoltan Birnbauer’s seat in the Hungarian OXXO MAN team. In 2014 and 2015 the go-getting MAN pilot brought the European championship to Hungary, where he enjoys cult status comparable to that of a pop star.

At tankpool24 he will now partner André Kursim, who has been a member of the MB Motorsport Team since 2013. Markus Bauer and his entire crew, a private team of Mercedes-enthusiast truck race devotees, are very upbeat about the prospects this season for the sole Mercedes team in the ETRC, what with Stefan Honens, the extremely experienced and successful race truck constructor, also on board.

Countdown to the 2016 season: Team Hahn Racing and Team Reinert Adventure

For the Hahn family and the eponymous team, 2016 marks an exceptionally eventful 20 years in the sport. The planned celebrations are some way off, however; the full focus right now at the Hahn workshops in Egenhausen, a few kilometres away from Jochen Hahn’s hometown Altensteig, is on completing the new race trucks, or giving them the final touches.

’s own MAN racer is fully race-ready, the eye-catcher in its blue-and-white livery having broken cover at a toy fair in Nuremberg at the end of January. But René Reinert’s truck is still in bits and pieces all over - and don’t forget, Hahn Racing has traditionally owned a third truck as well, meant for PR- and trade fair appearances. Last year’s one, in which Steffi Halm was so successful in the second half of the season, has found a new owner in England. The race wins and podium finishes that Steffi was able to achieve are evidence that even Team Hahn’s No. 3 truck is really no show truck at all, but a mean race machine in its own right. Don’t be surprised if you come across this one on the track this coming season.

For Jochen Hahn personally, building race trucks is as important as racing them. A good 20 Hahn trucks – Mercedes and MAN – are still tearing up tarmac around Europe, and still winning. Last season, for example, four Hahn-built trucks took the top places in the Le Mans Saturday’s second race.
The primary goal for Jochen and his team is obviously to race his own truck - and win. The bantam from Altensteig may be an institution as a constructor, but with three consecutive European titles to his name he also occupies a position of preeminence in the ETRC gallery of champions.
Heinz-Werner Lenz and Steve Parrish were the only others to achieve this feat.
The Hahns’ next goal might well be to smash Parrish’s record of five European championships. To set the record straight, however, the multiplicity of classes in those years meant there could be up to three champions a season - it’s only since 2006 that the title has been awarded to only one driver.

For Team Hahn Racing it’s also not inconceivable that Lukas steps into the racing boots of his illustrious dad Jochen and grandpa Konny. Who knows, we could even see the three Hahn generations on the track in a single race, for truck racing is ageless, in more senses than one. Not so long ago there was a 17-year-old, Benedek Major, on the podium. There have also been racers on the wrong side of 60, like Noël Crozier.

But the decision to blood the juniormost Hahn is one that will be taken when it is taken; long before that the team will be celebrating its jubilee with an open day at its Egenhausen workshops on 17 July.
