The European Truck Racing Association (ETRA) is excited to announce a dynamic new partnership with JOST, a global market leader in the production of systems, components and technology for commercial vehicles.

This strategic partnership marks an exciting chapter for the Goodyear FIA ETRC, as JOST takes its place among the official partners. The German company is renowned for its innovative solutions and unmatched expertise in the commercial vehicle industry.

Throughout the Goodyear FIA ETRC season, JOST will be prominently featured within the paddock. The partnership extends beyond mere visibility, as JOST plans to showcase its cutting-edge products in the Goodyear FIA ETRC fan village. In addition, JOST will deliver workshop sessions in its known “Truck Stop” format during various events throughout the season. Visitors can learn about the automatic coupling system JOST KKS which replaces the complex traditional coupling process and enables drivers to couple and uncouple semi-trailers via remote control. As optional equipment the King Pin Finder, a camera integrated in the fifth wheel coupling, further supports a safe and precise coupling process.
