Nogaro 2017 - Téo Calvet Print E-mail

First Truck race for Teo Calvet, 16 years old, at Nogaro!

01-nogaro-test-2017A nice challenge on the 24th and 25th of June at the Nogaro circuit for this young man because Teo has a surname very well known in the Truck Racing world! His father, Fabien Calvet, was a driver in French Cup and in European Championship with a very good palmares. But that doesn't seem impress him because Teo wants to make a name for himself. He is engaged as a race by race driver at Nogaro in the Lion Truck Racing team. The story seems to be the same in the Calvet family because the technical manager of this team is Pascal Calas, the former mechanic of Fabien and both had won many times!

Adept of competition since his youngest age, Teo has also been engaged in motocross for 2 seasons now. We wish him good luck for this first participation alongside the French Cup drivers!

TRO goes to India

tro drivers india

 The 2017 truck racing season kicks off in less than two weeks. While the teams that compete in the FIA European Truck Racing Championship still have a couple of months to prepare, the race trucks are ready to roll on two other continents. In Brazil, the first of 10 rounds in the Fórmula Truck series will take place at the Velopark in Porto Alegre, while the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida near New Delhi hosts the fourth edition of Tata Motors’ T1 Prima Challenge.


For at least six years now the Truck Race Organisation (TRO) led by its president Fabien Calvet has sought opportunity to expand the geographic scope of TRO’s activities to India; a recent approach from India’s dominant truckmaker has finally resulted in a breakthrough that will see six of the most accomplished racers from the European championship compete in the T1 Prima Pro Class race against a selection of the British championship’s drivers.
The contingent TRO has put together represents the absolute top flight of European truck racing – Germans Steffi Halm and Gerd Körber, Spanish matador Antonio Albacete, Hungarian ace Norbert Kiss, Czech David Vršecký, and Thomas Robineau account for 10 European championships and four French titles between them.
Gerd Körber, who celebrates his 30th year in the sport this season, could never have dreamed that, 26 years after his first European title, he’d still be racing – and in India of all places!
But it’s not only India that the TRO is active in; Fabien Calvet has long nurtured close contacts in Brazil, and played a pivotal role in setting up truck racing championships in China and the USA. The Buggyra team is already engaged in the Chinese event, and Stuart Oliver (the T1 Prima champ in 2014 and 2015, incidentally) has also represented TRO as a guest participant in the ChampTruck series in the US. From the looks of things, it’s increasingly likely that groups of European racers will compete in growing numbers of events overseas.

2017 tankpool 24 news

As the start of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship draws ever nearer, preparations by the various teams accelerate to a frenetic pace. That’s the way it was with Mercedes-Benz team tankpool24 last year. There had been major changes at MB-Motorsport over the winter break, beginning with the hiring of one of the most experienced – and most successful – constructors in the sport in Stefan Honens, and followed anon by Markus Bauer’s surprise announcement that twice-champ Norbert Kiss would be joining the team. While this was doubtless a sensational catch, expectations both within and without shot sky-high – especially in the media and among the fans, and very likely the sponsors as well.
Two all-new trucks were readied in next to no time, and though the Mercedes only underwent their first shakedowns at the season-opener, the tankpool24 trucks were among the frontrunners from the word go. At the end of the season all expectations had been exceeded by a huge margin. That in turn has engendered even greater expectations for the coming season.
At the moment everything’s quite relaxed at the team’s base in Nürtingen, 35 km southeast of Stuttgart. While a number of chassis mods should result in significant handling improvements, the focus this year is clearly on engine development. The bulk of activity over the winter has been at the dynos – enhancing both high-end power and low-end torque. But it’s reliability that will probably be tankpool24’s topmost priority following its disastrous performance at Le Mans, when first André Kursim in first qualifying on Saturday, and then Norbert Kiss while comfortably in the lead the following day, suffered sudden, irreparable engine damage.

2017 Schwabentruck news

In 2017, Iveco-powered Team Schwabentruck will participate in its first full season in the FIA European Truck Racing Championship.
What started out eight years ago as a hobby enterprise – a clutch of truck racing enthusiasts inspired by Schorsch Glöckler, Iveco’s former head of training in Ulm – is now a top-flight competition outfit.
Its collaboration with Iveco has intensified in recent years, giving the team the confidence to set the bar several notches higher in 2017.
Thrice European champion Gerd Körber, a Schwabentruck regular ever since he first turned out for the team in the Mittelrhein Cup races at the 2010 Truck Grand Prix on the Nürburgring, has insisted he’s doing it simply for the joy of racing.
Indeed, that was the guiding principle for the entire team in its initial years – Glöckler had been a die-hard truckrace fan for over 25 years. With gathering successes the team set its goals progressively higher even as it grew ever more ambitious. Despite his own personal ambitions, however, Körber – an accomplished race truck constructor in his early career in the sport – wasn’t able to commit himself beyond what his duties as director of family-owned Bickel-Tec, a truck modification and bodybuilding enterprise in Rheinau-Helmlingen in southwestern Baden- Württemberg, would permit.
But the coming season is going to be Körber’s 30th, incentive enough for him to (once again) devote all his energies to the FIA ETRC. Add to that the new factory engagement by Iveco and the promising cooperation with Team Hahn Racing.
As we report this, the all-new Iveco Trucks are being built, one for Körber and another for defending quadruple-champ Jochen Hahn. The two compadres will also partner for the team championship.
At selected rounds they will be joined by Markus Altenstrasser in another Schwabentruck Iveco
All the chassis fabrication and painting of cabin and frame should be completed before the end of February. Final assembly and tuning will follow in March before the first shakedown tests in early April.
Everything’s been running to plan so far, but the Schwabentruck crew and their colleagues at Hahn Racing still have a fair bit of heavy lifting ahead of them.
