The rapid Frenchman learned his race craft in Formula 3, on occasion sharing track with the likes of Sebastian Vettel and Sébastien Buemi.

Janiec has been racing trucks since 2007 and in recent years his main focus has been on the French series. He has been, however, making several FIA ETRC appearances each year, proving that on his day he can be one of the quickest truck racers out there. He's especially formidable in the wet.

Janiec kicked off the 2016 season with a second place at the opening race in Austria, scoring 3 more podiums and a victory at Jarama to finish sixth overall.

In 2017 Janiec competed in just the Nurburgring rounds but saw success with a third and second place finish.

The Frenchman took part in only a few rounds of the 2018 season yet he managed to finish on the podium at Misano and took a fine victory at the Nürburgring. Last year Anthony contested half the races scoring one podium finish at Misano.

Anthony and the Lion Truck Racing team will be back for a full season in the ETRC in 2020.
