European Truck Racing Champion On Retreads
This weekend Jarama in Spain hosted the penultimate racing weekend in the truck-racing calendar. While new Goodyear tyres dominate in the Super Race class, in the smaller, Truck Race class both the first and second place drivers had retreads fitted to their axles. For the two most successful drivers at this meeting, Rigdon retreads were the chosen products.
Englishman Stuart Oliver leads the championship with 21 points, ahead of Germany’s Lutz Bernau. The two competitors are the only two drivers that have a chance of becoming the new European Champion at the final race weekend in Le Mans.
Either retreads or new tyres are allowed on the drive axle. On the steering axle retreads are prohibited.
