2019 FIA ETRC Calendar Confirmed
The 2019 FIA European Truck Racing Championship calendar has been confirmed by the World Motorsport Council today at its meeting in St Petersburg, Russia.
The dates will see the FIA ETRC go from strength-to-strength with a consistent and stable calendar taking in some of Europe’s most challenging circuits.
An eight date calendar will see firm favourites continue to host spectacular world-class truck racing action
A planned ninth date was not included in the calendar despite the best efforts of European Truck Racing Association [ETRA] officials.
However, plans to expand for 2020 have already begun with several circuits being considered for adding to the schedule.
Commenting on the planned 2019 calendar, ETRA Director Rolf Werner said: “We have a very strong platform for our teams and drivers to again show the fantastic racing product we have both on and off the track.
“The range of familiar and settled dates on the schedule shows that we have great relationships with some of Europe’s biggest circuits that will continue.
“The fans, who come back year after year, can count on the FIA ETRC improving the sporting and social experience at events once again.
“2019 will be another fantastic season with all the biggest names and also some new ones again showcasing their skills on the FIA ETRC stage.
As well as continuing to promote and expand the media and marketing of the FIA ETRC, the promoters and organisers will lay down exciting plans for the wider picture of trucking industry and commercial activations and messaging in 2019.
Further details will be issued in the first phase of 2019.
