There will be no race held in Albacete
It’s official now, all the speculations have been confirmed. This year’s series of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship will have „only“ ten stands again. The races in Albacete, Spain fell out of the original time table for the season 2012.
“I feel sorry for every lost race occasion. On the other hand, in consideration of the transfer it was very demanding to reach Albacete. For us it was to travel two and half thousand kilometres across the Europe which means the longest trip in the whole championship series. It was the most spectator championship event neither, but as I have already told, I feel sorry for this cancelled race,” our team boss Mario Kress stated.
The circuit in Albacete should have been visited within the scope of the third event of the European championship on the second June weekend. According to the primal timetable, the season of 2012 amounted to eleven stands. To the ten races from the last season the races on circuit in Turkish Istanbul have arrived and many were a bit worried whether or not the season will be too full by half. “This time, Albacete was well scheduled; other times, when having the trucks too much damaged we could have had difficulties thanks to a long trip to another race destination. Man can repair everything much better in the works than on the road, of course. But the truck racing is about the stress, too so it always depends how people can handle the established obstacles,” Mario added.
Although the Albacete races disappeared from this year’s schedule, Spaniards will not miss the European championship event. The last but one championship series part (which is planned for the first October weekend) will be held in Jarama. In Albacete there were the truck races of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship held since 2005.
