Our company, the Truck Race Promotion Ltd. made history in 2015, because after 25 years the most outstanding, the most spectacular event of truck racing, the FIA European Truck Racing Championship returned to Hungaroring with great succes.

However, the technology and the circumstances have changed a lot during the years, but now we have a twice European champion as well, Norbert Kiss. In 2016 the standard of the weekend had raised.
