Truck Trail first time in Croatia
Company PK d.o.o. is partner of the Europe Truck Trial event, which is held for the first time in Croatia on May 12 and 13 on a motocross track in Rakov potok where 30 teams are expected. Europe Truck Trial is a 28-year-old hard-drive truck racing competition. From the first race in 1990 in France, this competition takes place throughout Europe, from Lithuania to northeast to Spain to the southwest. In 2018, 6 races will be held in 5 European countries, Germany, Austria, France, Italy and for the first time in Croatia.
In this competition time plays a secondary role because it is more important to overcome extreme field conditions, more accurately and without mistakes (and collecting penalties). Europe Truck Trial is competing for trucks in two-seater, three-stroke, four-door, and prototype trucks. Trucks are manufactured in series, with the exception of modification required for this sport. Common modifications include components that are relevant to safety, such as a rollover protection cage and a cage that protect against accidents. In addition, all the aggregates, such as the fuel tank and the air tank, which are usually secured laterally to the chassis, are mounted upwards and have an enhanced bumper and a protected drive manifold.
This year’s season starts in Croatia on May 12th and 13th in the motocross area of ”Draga” in Rakov potok. Thirty teams are expected to race in Croatia, and only the competition is divided into 8 to 10 different sections. Each section in front of the driver poses a new challenge to overcome demanding and often attractive obstacles.
