Entertainment & Industry
ETRC Fan Village
New for 2016 and located at the heart of the truck racing paddock; our fan village is developing into a real hub for race-goers to gather and it provides some great opportunities to get up close and personal with the drivers; including autograph sessions and post-race conferences, with the top three finishers, due to take place there on both Saturday and Sunday.
The fan village contains a seating area for you to relax and enjoy some food and drink, along with information and display areas about various aspects of truck racing including from the official series partners Goodyear, Mercedes Trucks, UTA and Meritor.
The Village has a local compere to talk you through the various activities taking place and a great atmosphere with music, entertainment and giveaways.
Grab a slice of history in Misano and take time to visit the display of fascinating historic commercial vehicles brought by the Automotoclub Storico Italiano (ASI).
A key attraction in all of the 2016 FIA ETRC paddocks is the transport and commercial vehicle industry display areas.
The championship provides an excellent marketing and networking opportunity and once again in Misano there will be a strong presence from the big makers of trucks, including IVECO, Mercedes and Scania along with the truck support and accessories industries all keen to show off their latest products and offering entertainments including test rides and simulators.
Party Truck Festival
A date for the diary is Saturday evening’s amazing Party Truck Festival, which has been organised in the FederalMogul Village of the Decorated Trucks in collaboration with Radiostudiopiù!
A very popular part of the race weekend in Misano is the decorated trucks rally where around 100 decorated trucks from all around Italy plus many other European nations including Germany, Austria, France, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands gather in the paddock.
The selected trucks feature artwork, trimmings and technology that will wow the public: a mix of travelling works of art that depicting famous people, historic films, well-known characters and much more. The area dedicated to American trucks is particularly unmissable as these vehicles hold an irresistible fascination for anyone who loves the world of transport. These giants are one of the most recognisable sights on the streets of America.
