FIA European Truck Racing Championship: Speedline Truck Team and the local hero Norbert Kiss
Presezzo, Italy, 08.16.2016 – The fifth race in this year’s season of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship is scheduled for August 26 – 28. The Speedline Truck Team will be on hand with its regional trading partners at the Truck Grand Prix at the Hungaroring circuit near Budapest to cheer on local hero Norbert Kiss.
The FIA European Truck Racing Championship ranks as one of the most popular motorsport racing series in Europe. As in the past two years, the tankpool24 racing team is being sponsored by Speedline Truck, the truck wheel brand of the Swiss company RONAL GROUP. Driver Norbert Kiss, who currently takes fourth place in the overall ranking, is the latest addition to the team. It is hoped that this Hungarian sportsman, winner of the European championship in both 2014 and 2015, can lead the tankpool24 team to success this year.
Speedline Truck is aiming for a double benefit by entering top driver Kiss for a ‘home match’ at the 4,381 m Hungaroring circuit: Firstly, its regional trading partners Optitrailer (Hungary), Contact Tire (Romania) and R. HORÁK s.r.o. (Czech Republic) along with their customers will be able to experience the special atmosphere of the racetrack. As guests of the tankpool24 team, they will be offered the opportunity not only to meet Norbert Kiss in person, but also take a look at the Mercedes trucks close up. Secondly, the Speedline Truck team will be on site to present the product program: light alloy wheels with a premium diamond surface for truck and trailer applications that guarantee maximum payload levels. Hungarian distributor Opitrailer will also be in attendance with its own stand. Besides imported products featuring key trailer brands, the firm will be exhibiting SPEEDLINE TRUCK wheels as well.
Andreas Pape, Sales Manager at Speedline Truck comments:
“Since 2012 we have demonstrated the high endurance strength of our truck wheels by putting them through continuous service at the Truck Grand Prix. At this event in Hungary we want to showcase our products and their strengths once again while further consolidating our links to existing and new customers in Central and Eastern Europe. We therefore look forward to welcoming our key trading partners and their guests to the Hungaroring.”
