ETRC regulations

Bringing together the best drivers in the sport and the most technically advanced machines, the FIA European Truck Racing Championship is contested on some of Europe’s greatest race tracks.

In the ETRC, on-track action is guaranteed. Despite top speeds being limited by the regulations to 160kph, the drivers and their 1200hp, 5.3 tonne machines provide first class performances and some very hotly disputed on-track battles. Furthermore, there are no fewer than four races held at each meeting, with two qualifying sessions per round and a Super Pole system equally in place. Races 2 and 4 at each event feature reverse starting grids for the trucks that finish between first and eighth in the previous race, thus ensuring there is plenty of overtaking. Above all, the championship visits some of the greatest race tracks in Europe, such as the Hungaroring (Hungary), the Nürburgring (Germany) or the Bugatti circuit at Le Mans, not forgetting Zolder (Belgium), Jarama (Spain) and Misano (Italy).
