Iveco is official partner of Alfa Romeo Racing

Iveco, the newly appointed official truck partner of Alfa Romeo Racing, has delivered a fleet of 12 Stralis trucks and one Daily van to the team. The vehicles will ensure safe and efficient transportation of the team’s equipment to all the Formula One European Grand Prix venues throughout this season.

According to Thomas Rücker, business director of Iveco Schweiz, the company is very proud of the partnership. “Iveco has a long tradition of partnerships and participation in the world of sports, and in particular racing, where our trucks can be seen competing in the Dakar Rally and the FIA European Truck Racing Championship. We look forward to the new racing season and wish Alfa Romeo Racing success,” he tells FOCUS.

Frédéric Vasseur, team principal Alfa Romeo Racing and CEO Sauber Motorsport AG, is equally upbeat about the partnership. “It is a pleasure to welcome Iveco to Alfa Romeo Racing as official truck partner. Having a reliable and safe means of transportation for our equipment is an essential aspect of our logistical operations in Formula One. With Iveco, our team has an experienced partner by its side and we look forward to this collaboration,” he concludes.

My friends call me a glomad (a global nomad lest you don’t get it). That’s a particularly apt word, because I am always trawling all corners of the globe, looking for stories. As a result, I have slept in some seriously strange places – on a bed of ice in the Arctic circle, on the floor in a traditional Japanese hotel, on the sand dunes in the Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan … and even on the floor of a Thai cargo ship. Mostly however I tend to sleep on aircraft (if I had a dog, he would bark at me when I eventually come home). I am passionate about trucks, cars, travel, food, wine, people and hugs – so I write about all these things. Except the hugs.
