The Goodyear FIA ETRC, ETRA Promotion and the entire truck racing community are saddened by the passing of French Truck Racer Anthony Janiec.

A three-time French Truck Racing Champion, Janiec learned his race craft in Formula 3 and has been racing trucks since 2007, when he competed with Team 14 in both the French and European series before teaming up with Lion Truck Racing in 2015.

Since then he made many ETRC appearances each year, proving that on his day he can be one of the quickest truck racers out there.

"Anthony was not only a valued part of the truck racing community, he was also an indispensable member of our ETRC-family,” said Rolf Werner, Managing Director of ETRA, promoter of the Goodyear FIA ETRC.

"He was passionate about motorsport and we miss him already, just as we still miss his team patron Patrick Folléas in our paddock, who also passed away far too early, only two years ago.

On behalf of the Goodyear FIA ETRC, I would like to offer my sincere condolences to his family, Jennifer, Murielle, Sarah, Jean-Pierre, his two children Timéo and Léo, to the members of Lion Truck Racing and Janiec Racing Team at this very sad time.

We will never forget Anthony!”
