Are you a truck racing fan? Then join Fleet Speak this summer for a virtual racing season live in your own home – and cheer on the driver we’re sponsoring!
Due to the suspension of live sporting events as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, some of the drivers who were due to take to racing tracks around Europe will instead compete in a new digital format of the series named 2020 ETRC DIGITAL RACING CHALLENGE.
The series is organised by ETRA Promotion GmbH, who also promotes the FIA ETRC and they have made the digital version as close to the real racing as possible. The trucks are in the original 2020 liveries, the circuits are exact replicas of the real venues and a live race control based directly at the Nurburgring circuit to oversee all the ‘on track’ action.
Fleet Speak are sponsoring the Apollo Tyres Tor Truck Racing MAN, driven by Shane Brereton. He’ll be racing on the virtual Misano World Circuit in Italy on 7th June. You can’t miss him – his truck will be branded in purple by Apollo Tyres and emblazoned on both sides with the Fleet Speak logo!
That’s one of eight rounds that could be lighting up your screens, each set on virtual racetracks around Europe on summer weekends. It consists of qualifying and two live-streamed races, with the first starting at 18:00 CET and the second at 19:00 CET.
Fleet Speak will be broadcasting all the races live on our website, so make sure to connect here on Sunday and Shane your support, from this weekend fans of the series will also get commentaries in different languages so in addition to English, there will be French, German, Spanish and Czech commentators bringing you all the live action.
All of us at Fleet Speak are excited to be involved with the Apollo Tyres Tor Truck Racing Team in the ETRC’s move to the virtual world. If you’ve never experienced the excitement of truck racing before, we think this digital challenge could get you hooked.
