2016 Team Schwabentruck Print E-mail

Countdown to the 2016 season: Team Schwabentruck

Among the German teams, which as you might expect overwhelmingly race MANs and Mercedes, is the only team in the European championship that runs Ivecos - Schwabentruck from Ulm. Iveco trucks were built in Ulm from 1975 till 2012, when production was shifted to other European locations. Since then the Ulm site has concentrated exclusively on the manufacture of firefighting vehicles, bringing the Swabians full circle - it was with vehicles for the fire brigades that the history of truckmaking in Ulm first began in 1866, when Conrad Dietrich Magirus established Feuerwehr-Requisiten-Fabrik C.D. Magirus (C.D Magirus Factory for Firefighting Requisites). Following a chequered history the enterprise extant was taken over by Iveco 40 years ago, and trucks were series-built here till the last Stralis rolled off the line in August 2012. Since then the Iveco-Magirus brand has been reduced to simply Magirus as the factory builds firefighting vehicles on chassis of other manufacturers as well besides Iveco. The huge display hall is full of fire trucks with almost every badge on their grilles.

Nevertheless many former Iveco employees see the Schwabentruck team with Schorsch Glöckler at its core as their kindred. Several mechanics from tkv-Thermoking, in whose vicinity somewhat north of Ulm the race team is based, also feel a special bond to Schwabentruck.
Indeed, were it not for the enormous engagement of all these truck racing enthusiasts there would be no Schwabentruck Iveco Team.
Glöckler & Co are satisfied with their preparations for the coming season.
After all, in Gerd Körber they have not only one of the most successful, but also one of the most experienced race-truck pilots on board. Körber won the first of his three European titles as far back as 1991.

For the 2016 season Team Schwabentruck will take part in at least as many races as it did last year - and maybe one two more besides, team boss Glöckler lets on with a wink. In any case, the team has two fully race-ready trucks at its disposal. The choice of which races to participate in will depend on various factors, primarily the availability of finances and the time it will require for the team members, all of whom sacrifice a huge part of their leisure time for truck racing. Discussions about who can make themselves available for which events are still ongoing..

2016 Truck Sport Bernau Print E-mail

Countdown to the 2016 season: Truck Sport Bernau


Truck Sport Lutz Bernau, the southernmost-situated of the German truck race teams, is also the oldest. The region around the Ammersee, the paradisiacal proglacial Lake Ammer west-southwest of Munich, is a classic vacation destination. But vacationing is furthest from the minds of everybody at Bernau right now -every year at this time the team is fully focused on preparations for the upcoming season, and this year is no different.

Lutz Bernau drove his first circuit truck race in the mid-1980s, having earlier pursued his passion for racing in rallies like the Paris–Dakar. But it was only at the start of the 1990s that Bernau became a fairly regular participant in circuit races, first in France. A couple of years later he competed in his first full European season, going on from there to win the driver’s championship twice and come runner-up thrice. The string of successes continued even after he handed his cockpit over to Antonio Albacete, the two together winning three championships and finishing second five times.
But unlike many of his peer group, Lutz Bernau has – season after season – proved paddock predictions of his wanting to retire of truck race fatigue hopelessly unfounded. The fact is, the same thing holds for the man from Bavaria as for most others in the sport — once you’re infected with the truck racing virus it’s nigh impossible to rid yourself of it!
It’s no wonder, then, that the Bernau workshops in Utting are a beehive of activity from early morning till late evening. The team proudly shows off their computer-controlled plasma cutting machine, which they use to fashion many of the parts needed for the construction of the race truck from thick steel plate in seconds and with sub-millimetre accuracy. Not only does this save massively on time compared to manual cutting; the outcome too is far more precise.

For the new season there’s no change as concerns the driver - the cockpit stays reserved for the grande dame of truck racing Ellen Lohr. In addition, a second MAN race truck is being built for another team.

Tankpool 24 2016 Print E-mail

Countdown to the 2016 season: tankpool24 Truck Racing Team

It’s not only in the south of France that race trucks for the new season are being furiously worked on - southern Germany too is a hotbed of race truck development. The region is home base to tankpool24 Truck Racing, Truck Sport Lutz Bernau, Team Schwabentruck, Team Hahn Racing, and Reinert Racing, five teams all situated a short drive from one another. Not only does this proximity facilitate direct communication; the teams are also ever ready to share parts with one another. This isn’t only the case in the paddock during races, but also, indeed, in the run-up to the season - even if the individual teams are racing trucks of completely different makes. This kind of attitude and dealing is one of those many things that makes truck racing so special and distinguishes it from every other series.
The Mercedes team of MB Motorsport will have three tankpool24 race trucks this season. One is almost ready, there being not too many changes having had to be made to the truck that raced last season. The two others are completely new constructions from the ground up.
While the older of the three is primarily intended for display at exhibitions and other public relations activities, it could well be made available for guest drivers to race at some events. The two new trucks will be entered for the full season.
The only confirmed driver so far is André Kursim, a tankpool24 regular of the last couple of years. Who his teammate will be is far from decided yet, and team boss Markus Bauer is as neck-deep in negotiations with prospects as his mechanics are at work on the trucks.
In Stefan Honens the MB Motorsport team now has a highly accomplished chief engineer with almost 20 years of truck race experience. Having started out with Gerd Körber’s MAN team, he then worked with DAF and Mercedes before moving over to MAN 15 years ago and going on to win four championships in all with Stuart Oliver and Jochen Hahn. The native Westphalian’s yearning for a new challenge has led him back to the Star marque.
Bauer is convinced that the combination of the experience his team has gathered over the last few years and the knowledge of his high-profile recruit will put the tankpool24 Mercedes trucks more frequently in the front of the field this season than has been the case so far.
