Champion Hahn honoured at FIA Awards Gala in Austria
Reigning FIA European Truck Racing Champion, Jochen Hahn, was recognised by the FIA last Friday evening at the annual FIA Awards Gala in Vienna, Austria.
Hahn, who attended the spectacular ceremony with his wife and Team Manager, Diana, was presented with a special champion’s trophy during the event which was attended by FIA President Jean Todt.
Hahn was celebrating his fourth FIA ETRC title this year after previously taking title successes in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Speaking about Hahn’s achievement was ETRA Director, Georg Fuchs, who was also in attendance at the Gala, said: “It was a fitting way for Jochen to end and enjoy the 2016 season because he has been magnificent all year. To win a race in every event was a superb achievement, but for me what marks him out as a great champion is that he did it in such great sporting spirit too.
“The evening in Vienna was a nice opportunity for the motorsport industry to celebrate all the FIA champions and to acclaim the rich diversity in all the Federations’ championships that we as Truck racing are part of this FIA family,” concluded Fuchs.
Hahn also took the opportunity in Vienna to congratulate his fellow countryman Nico Rosberg who recently took the FIA Formula One World Championship.
