Check out our notebook form the official three-day FIA European Truck Racing Championship’s preseason testing held at Autodrom Most
Team Schwabentruck |
The Schwabentruck team was founded in 2010 and ran the new IVECO race truck which they raced successfully in the ADAC Middle Rhine Cup that year.
In 2011, continuous top-ten finishes and an acclaimed 2nd place in the Belgian Zolder followed in four FIA races in a competitive season.
2012 saw the road to success come closer and further podium positions were secured. A 2nd and 3rd place, as well as the 3rd place in the Czech race at Most were achieved. Gerd Köerber and Georg Glöckler then scored more top finishes at the Nürburgring. The team also ran Markus Altenstrasser at Misano where he scored a quartet of tenth place positions.
A third place at Misano and a second at Le Mans for Köerber were the highlights of 2015 for the friendly team from Lonsee in central southern Germany.
2016 saw several excellent performances with Markus Altenstrasser and Gerd Köerber scoring podiums at the first round in Austria. After that Köerber scored consistently and won at Hungaroring but only to see the victory taken away after a post-race penalty.
2017 saw Köerber again compete in the IVECO with the Cursor engine. He also partnered with Jochen Hahn in the Teams' championship.
The Ulm based team will also run Markus Altenstrasser and Steffan Faas in selected races.
For 2018 Steffi Halm makes the switch from Reinert and Korber is expected to race a second Schwabentruck IVECO in selected events.
