ETCC aces keep on truckin’ at Zolder

Ex-FIA European Touring Car Cup racer Norbert Kiss took time out of his preparations for the Zolder Truck Grand Prix to give selected ETCC racers a tour of his OXXO Truck Race Team MAN.

The FIA European Truck Racing Championship and ETCC are sharing the bill in Belgium this weekend and Kiss’s team was only too happy to give several touring car drivers an insight into racing trucks.

Dušan Borković, Gilles Bruckner, Mato Homola, Davit Kajaia and Peter Rikli were all given a tour of Kiss’s cab ahead of qualifying for rounds nine and 10 of the ETCC.

Christjohannes Schreiber will start ETCC Race of Vila Real defending a slender one-point lead in the battle to be crowned FIA European Touring Car Cup champion for 2017.

ETCC Race of Vila Real is set for a live television extravaganza with TVI showing both races as they happen on several digital platforms including TVI Player, TVI24.iol.pt and Facebook.com/tvi24.

Top Portuguese driver Fábio Mota will be hoping to make a big impact on the streets of Vila Real this weekend as he looks to build on his FIA European Touring Car Cup podium double last time out in Germany. This is what the LEIN Racing SEAT driver had to say ahead of his home race.
