Season gets underway in Hungary
The European Truck Racing Association (ETRA) the promoter of the championship, in consultation with the FIA and the local race organiser has taken the decision to postpone the 2021 FIA European Truck Racing Championship season-opening event, in a bid to accommodate fans at the new date in October.
Due to the current situation amid the COVID-19 pandemic across Europe, the FIA ETRC season-opener in Misano, Italy won’t go ahead on the scheduled date of May 22-23, 2021. The new date for the race in Misano has been set as October 16-17, 2021.
The race weekend in Italy will be the final race of the 2021 season, and all involved parties are hopeful to be able to welcome fans back to the track.
"After we had to cancel the 2020 event, we are very happy to host the European Truck Racing Championship again this year, as the final event of the 2021 season," said Andrea Albani, Managing Director of Misano World Circuit.
"We want to express our gratitude to the promotors, the Italian Institutions, the Emilia-Romagna region, APT Emilia Romagna and Visit Romagna for their support. A special thanks to the Italian Federation ACI Sport, for their support and sharing the value of the event."
The 2021 season will therefore kick off in Hungary on June 12-13 and will feature seven race weekends on some of Europe’s most challenging circuits.
