Weekend Truck on West European circuits
Last weekend (20-21 September), took place the 7th round of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship in Belgium at Zolder, under the vagaries of changing weather but also the 4th race of the Trucks French Cup on the circuit Charade.
Two important events for the end of season 2014, and racing fans truck moved massively on circuits French and Belgians.
It was also a great weekend to Donerre Suspensions belt, trucks with dampers Donerre have great performances, and all teams defended honorably their colors.
So at Zolder, at the European Championship, 5 trucks with dampers Donerre were lined up on the starting, Anthony Janiec and Ellen Lohr (team TRUCKDRIVE-JRT), Jose Sousa (team VTR) and Team LION TRUCK RACING who lined 3 prestigious pilots, Stephanie Halm, Jean-Pierre Blaise (who was running home) and Arthur Ardavichus, driving their MAN pilots honored (by winning two pole positions) to their team that had for occasion, hosted nearly 200 guests in their paddock throughout the weekend.
The French Cup as well held all its promises in Charade. The pilot Lionel Montagne (Team ARAVI) driving his RENAULT, equipped DONERRE suspensions (recently upgrade with the acquisition system ART Anti-Roll Technology), saw its 1st race shortened because of a transmission problem, the Saturday, he gets the 9th place on the starting line for the 2nd race, in which he catches other behemoths and passes in 1st position the finish line. And on Sunday he won the race 3 and finished at the foot of the podium for the last race of the weekend; highlight the goods performances of the rider and truck throughout the 4th round of the French Championship.
The European and French Championship continue… a weekends that promise yet good race, in particular, 4 and 5 October at Jarama in Madrid for the European Championship, and the final of the French Cup will take place at Le Man at the 24 hours, on 11 and 12 October.
