The Series

Combining the excitement of truck racing with entertainment, sustainability and technical innovation

The biggest, most imposing racing series in the world, the Goodyear FIA European Truck Racing Championship (ETRC) is a truly unique motor sport spectacle and the pinnacle of global truck racing with the most professional teams and drivers competing in a pan-European series.

Even though some of its events celebrated their 30th anniversary or more, the recognition as an official FIA championship and current format has been in operation since 2006. The Goodyear FIA ETRC's first ever promoter, ETRA Promotion GmbH, has been mandated since 2016. Several well-known manufacturers are represented in the Goodyear FIA ETRC, namely IVECO, Freightliner, MAN, Scania and Ford.

Sustainability transformation together with safety and the topic of truck driver shortage are the three strategic focus areas of the Goodyear FIA ETRC, and the organisers have committed to the Paris Agreement to reach net zero by 2038 at the latest. ETRA is also a signatory to the UN Sports for Climate Action Framework, to help implement the Paris Agreement and to accelerate the transformative change needed to reach greenhouse gas emission neutrality by 2050 at the latest.

The Goodyear FIA ETRC was the first-ever motorsport series to successfully switch to a 100% sustainable fuel in 2021 and with the bio-LNG-powered IVECO S-WAY NP pace truck, the championship has reduced its carbon emissions on the race track by up to 92% over the last three years.

The very popular championship attracts each year around 350.000 spectators from the industry and beyond. The very familiar paddock atmosphere doesn’t only attract family and friends but at most events it also functions as an industry exhibition for OEMs, fleet owners, drivers and business decision takers.

The Goodyear FIA ETRC events are not just events for the (truck) drivers but with the (truck) drivers – aligned with this mindset, the promoter ETRA has launched its #onetruckfamily campaign with the objective to unite all industry professionals and to contribute with positive image transfer and emotions to the truck driver shortage crisis.
