IVECO makes a stand for sustainability in the European Truck Racing Championship 2023

True to its sustainability core value, IVECO brings its commitment to decarbonization to the FIA European Truck Racing Championship 2023 with its low emission and alternative propulsion vehicles.


IVECO is participating in the 2023 season as Technical Sponsor of the “Die Bullen von IVECO”, the partnership between Team Schwabentruck and Team Hahn Racing. The team is competing with the IVECO S-Way-R race trucks, which have been further upgraded to deliver an outstanding performance.


Six-time European champion Jochen Hahn is heading Team Hahn Racing, which also includes his son Lukas Hahn. He competes to regain his title as Champion, which he won for two years in a row in 2018 and 2019. German driver Steffi Halm is leading the Schwabentruck Team for the fifth season.


The teams’ IVECO S-Way-R trucks will run on Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) in all the Championship’s races, delivering their trademark high levels of performance whilst reducing emissions.


As Official Partner of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship for the 2023 season, IVECO is also supporting the European Truck Racing Association (ETRA) for the third year in a row on its path to net zero target by 2038 with its IVECO S-Way LNG, the first ever Pace Truck with alternative traction in the FIA-ETRC.  

The IVECO S-Way LNG, undisputed gas leader for sustainable long-distance haulage and built to achieve a significant reduction in fuel consumption and pollution, will be joined on the tracks by a unique Show Truck: the IVECO eTruck in race version: a prototype race truck developed by Team Hahn Racing with the technical support of IVECO engineering and the key contribution of IVECO Design Centre for the cab design. The vehicle was unveiled in a static display at the first Truck Grand Prix of the year on 20th-21st May in Misano, Italy, where it was the centre of attention in the paddock throughout the weekend. The IVECO eTruck will be shown in a dynamic display at the Nürburgring race, in Germany, on 15th-16th July.

The IVECO eTruck is an electric IVECO S-Way heavy-duty truck equipped with a rear eAxle from FPT Industrial - IVECO's sister Brand within Iveco Group and a global leader specialised in advanced powertrain technologies - delivering 840 kW of maximum power. The eTruck system, with a charge power peak of 522 kW, enables the vehicle to complete the full distance of a typical race, such as previous FIA ETRC races. The vehicle features 4 batteries with a total energy storage of 252 kWh.

The IVECO S-Way LNG Pace Truck is powered by bio-LNG stored in two 540-litre tanks that hold at least 390kg of liquid bio-LNG, providing autonomy of up to 1,600 kilometres without refuelling. It generates considerably lower nitrogen oxide and particulate matter emissions compared to its diesel equivalents, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 95% when biomethane is used.

The vehicle will bear a specially designed livery and showcase custom features such as two yellow rotating beacons, a light bar with LED headlights, an illuminated three-piece bull bar and LED flashers required by FIA-ETRA technical regulations. 

Jochen Hahn brings home the first victory of the season at the Misano Gran Prix, May 20th-21st

On Saturday, May 20th, in the first race - which started under yellow flag due to the difficult track conditions due to the extreme weather that have severely affected the Emilia-Romagna region in the previous days -, Jochen Hahn gained the victory ahead of Antonio Albacete and André Kursim. IVECO teammate Steffi Halm was on track for a podium position too but was forced to withdraw early. In an exciting second race of the day, Team Hahn Racing fought hard against the competitors to finish with a 5th position.

On Sunday, May 21st, Jochen Hahn made the most of the perfect racing conditions of the day. In the final race, he got off to a great start and pushed his truck throughout the race to the finish line, closing with a victory and the second podium of the weekend for Team Hahn Racing

The first round of the 2023 FIA ETRC was a success for Team Die Bullen von IVECO, which achieved a 2nd place in the Team Standings.

The second round of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship will take place on June 10th and 11th on the Slovakia Ring.
