A nod to the Lion Truck Racing Team's nuggets !

Since its creation in 2012, the team has been a pioneer in finding new talent and does not hesitate to break the codes.

One of the few female riders, Steffi Halm, was the team's first nugget. Today ranked in the Top 3 of the European Championship, she became champion for the first time in her career with the Lion Truck Racing team in 2012 and 2013. She still runs with the number 44 that made her famous in the world of truck racing. 

Téo Calvet and Louis Meric joined the Lion Truck Racing team in 2017 as soon as they blew out their 16th birthday, the legal age for racing in competition.

Louis Meric is already in charge of the succession by finishing in the Top 5 of the FFSA French Championship just behind the best in the discipline.

Discovered at the age of 12 (contract and support), Téo Calvet made history in truck racing this year in Nogaro at the wheel of his MAN Lion Truck Racing by winning the first victory for a 16-year-old.

These two champion seeds can develop their skills within the team alongside the leader of the competition, Anthony Janiec. He too does not forget that he was able to benefit in his time from a boost from a major in the truck competition, Jachen Hahn, for his first podium finish in the European Championship.

Of course these achievements are possible thanks to racing trucks designed and manufactured from scratch in Toulouse by Pascal Calas' technical teams.

We are counting on your support this weekend at the Nurburgring for Anthony Janiec's return to the European Championship.
