Organizers are expecting over 100,000 spectators and MANN-FILTER will be on site as the sponsor of the renowned Tankpool24 Racing Team to support truck racer Steffen Faas (39, Germany) at the most important racing event of the year.
Racing truck with over 1000 hp
The team's Scania Racing Truck competing over the weekend impresses with over 1000 hp and will guarantee exciting racing action. The rear of the five-ton racing truck bears the traditional MANN-FILTER colors. The yellow-and-green design is the trademark of the global filtration brand and is also intended to ensure a recognition value in truck racing.
Steffen Faas, operating in two roles as team owner and driver, will be at the wheel of the MANN-FILTER racing truck. The 39-year-old won the Promoter’s Cup last year and finished on the podium a few times.
Four races at Nürburgring's short circuit
Spectators can look forward to four exciting races, each of which will be held on the short circuit of Nürburgring's Grand Prix track. In addition, two qualifying sessions and the “reversed grid”, as part of which the field starts in reverse order, will provide some extra excitement in heats two and four.
