Truck-Grand-Prix 2017 Fast Laps in Heavy Racing Trucks
The Truck-Grand-Prix on the Nürburgring combines motorsports and business with a great party – a spectacle every time!
You've missed something if you haven't been there: The Truck-Grand-Prix on the Nürburgring. One of the world's most powerful showdowns – motorsports and happening. Even though the weather was rather poor during this year's grand prix, more than 100,000 truck enthusiasts met at the Eifel racetrack. The full entertainment package was offered despite the constant rain: Spectacular races, guided tours through the paddocks or flying visits to various exhibitors, for example at ZF'spromoliner. Commercial vehicle experts from T Division provided customer representatives and interested truckers with information about the TraXon transmission's advantages. "The whole industry comes together at this event: Manufacturers, forwarders and the drivers themselves," is how WinfriedGründler, head of the Truck & Van Driveline Technology Business Unit, describes why it is necessary that ZF is on-site.
ZF was also represented on the racetrack again. Basically all this year's teams use an Ecosplit transmission to get their race trucks' 1,000 HP on the road.
