Antonio Albacete's journey in motorsport began in go-karts, where he quickly demonstrated his talent, securing Spain's vice-champion title at just 15 years old.

Soon he moved up to Formulas where he won the 1982 Fórmula Fiesta for the first time, winning again in 1986 (the class is now re-named as Formula Ford).

Expanding his horizons, Albacete ventured abroad, competing in the British Formula 3000 in 1989 and claiming a respectable 6th position.

His success continued in 1990, becoming Formula Renault Spanish Champion and triumphing in Class II of the Spanish Touring Car Championship (CET).

Throughout the 1990s, Albacete's career saw him representing prestigious brands like FIAT, BMW, and Opel, securing notable achievements such as Vice-Champion in CET and multiple outright wins in the Spanish Championship.

In 1997, he embarked on a new chapter, piloting the works MAN in the European Championship, eventually culminating in his crowning as European Champion in 2005, a title he successfully defended in 2006 and 2010.

Beyond truck racing, Albacete indulges in occasional outings, racing his classic 1973 Mini Cooper and contributing to GT testing duties for Teo Martín Motorsport.

Returning to the ETRC in 2017 with Truck Sport Lutz Bernau Team, Albacete faced an initial adjustment period but showcased his skills with a popular win at the Slovakia Ring, later adding two more victories at Jarama on his way to fifth in the final standings. The following year, he reached new heights, securing an impressive third place in the standings with four race wins.

In subsequent seasons, Albacete continued to demonstrate his fierce competitiveness, finished runner-up in the Drivers championship in 2019.
2020 saw a new dawn, as T Sport Racing and Truck Sport Bernau joined forces to contest as T Sport Bernau with Antonio Albacete as their confirmed driver.

A brilliant and skilful driver, Albacete remains a force to be reckoned with on the truck racing circuit.
