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.

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.

Season preparations 2016: Lion Truck Racing

Lion Truck Racing Lion Truck Racing

Less than three months to the start of the 2016 truck racing season in Europe, we now look at the individual teams and where they’re at.
Like all the other participants in the European Truck Racing Championship, Lion Truck Racing from France is also neck-deep in preparations for the new season.

Last year Anthony Janiec and his team were the only full-season French participants. As we write this, chief engineer Pascal Calas and his merry men led by mechanics Nelson Flor and Mikael Derivaz are busy building several brand new race trucks in their workshops in Toulouse - not only MANs but, like they did in 2015, also a Renault. And as you might expect, they have a veritable warehouse of parts to draw from.

Team owner and truck race fanatic Patrick Folleas, boss of the large French logistics and transport company BFT, is amenable to racing in both the European championship and the French national championship, as in 2015. The exact allocation will be decided only just before the start of the season, because when it comes to his passion for truck racing, the successful businessman usually takes gut decisions on the spur of the moment.
Having the backing of his large business enterprise allows him extravagances such as being able to supplement the three-member core truck race team at any time with experienced and no less motorsport-mad employees from BFT, headquartered in Lyon.

The lion, the heraldic emblem of Lyon, is also the eponym of Folleas’ team, never mind that it is actually based in Toulouse. The heraldic animal of Toulouse, by the way, happens to be a lamb - not quite the right choice perhaps for a truck race outfit!

Team Hahn Racing 2016 Print E-mail

Back to the roots

Jochen Hahn - 2007 Jochen Hahn - 2016

 Team Hahn Racing is celebrating twentieth anniversary this year, on such occasions very often people wallow in nostalgia. But that's not the reason that the Hahn RaceTruck 2016 nearly looks like the truck almost 10 years ago. 

The contract between Hahn-Racing and the main sponsor, who coined the green-white appearance of the team in recent years, expired. The main color of the longtime companion and sponsor Knorr, is blue and it was obvious to tune the new design accordingly.

"Back to the roots", however, only applies to the colors - but not the brand. In Altensteig people were magnificently amused by the speculation on Facebook that Jochen Hahn will change the brand for 2016.
In fact, the truck, which had triggered this discussion, was a RaceTruck from Finland, which Jochen Hahn and his team have completely rebuilt - on behalf of a  customer.
