This isn’t your uncle’s semi-truck, it’s a European Racing Truck. This 1,080-horsepower beast races among its competitor brands on the tracks of Europe, including the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit, Le Mans Bugatti, and more. The Tankpool 24 Hours Racing Team is headed up by truck racing legend Markus Oestereich. “Oese,” as he is referred to in the paddock, has been mentoring drivers Andre Kursim and Norbert Kiss to drive the 24 in the nine rounds of this incredible series. Climb aboard this colossal racing machine, engage first gear, and get ready for the ride of your life.
I remember visiting Europe a few years ago and happening upon a replay of a European Truck Race on television. It was like nothing I’d ever seen, with these massive behemoths lumbering around the track and fighting for position. My first thought was ‘How cool would it be to race these in Forza?’ The Tankpool24 may not be what most people think of when they think of ‘racing’ but as soon as you sit in that cockpit high above the tarmac and rev that engine, you’ll know exactly why an ETRC truck belongs in Forza 6.
The Mercedes-Benz Racing Truck features a 12.8L turbocharged inline-6 engine producing a massive power output of 1080 hp (805 kW) and an equally massive torque output of 3688 ft·lb (5000 N·m) due to being a race truck weighing 12125 lb (5500 kg).
The Racing Truck has its engine placed in the middle towards the rear and is powered by a 10-speed transmission driving the rear wheels.
