MEYLE put through its paces in truck racing
Powerful vehicles, strong engines and tons of passion – MEYLE supports the SL TruckSport 30 racing team as a technical collaborative partner with high-quality MEYLE parts and engineering expertise, with the aim of accompanying drivers and the team on their path to the podium. Parts provided by the Hamburg-based manufacturer have been installed in racing trucks since 2014. In addition to the technical equipment of the more than 1,000 hp racing truck with high-quality MEYLE parts, MEYLE engineers will be available as technical partners on the race weekends and in the workshops.
And the MEYLE product portfolio is also growing as a result: findings from everyday racing and the stress test are used to develop new parts and optimise existing ones in the truck range.
FIA European Truck Racing Championship returns
After many races had to be cancelled last year, the FIA has announced far-reaching hygiene measures this year so that the 2021 events can probably take place as scheduled. Back in the game is truck idol Sascha Lenz. MEYLE has been supporting the SL TruckSport 30 Racing Team around Lenz as technical supplier and partner since 2019. Lenz has used the winter period intensively to prepare his race truck for the upcoming racing series. He installed more than 15 MEYLE parts in his truck himself this year to be perfectly prepared for the starting gun on June 11. The race series can be followed on the official FIA-ETRC website.
