On May 1, 2016, Ellen Lohr will begin her latest FIA European Truck Racing Championship season in Spielberg, Austria. This season, Lohr’s MAN truck will be fitted with a Pro Racer SPG racing shell from RECARO Automotive Seating. “I’m extremely pleased that Ellen Lohr has chosen RECARO for the 2016 European truck racing season. Her racing talents, as well as her open and honest nature, make her an ideal brand ambassador for us,” said Manfred Nickels, Senior Manager Marketing for RECARO Automotive Seating. “In our Pro Racer SPG racing shell, she’ll be perfectly equipped for the coming duels on the asphalt. Our racing shell is made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic and not only meets the highest safety standards, but relays the truck’s feedback to the driver.”

Having primarily focused on truck racing in recent years, Ellen Lohr joined the Truck Sport Bernau team in 2015. Her tenth-place finish in last year’s overall standings proves she is a force to be reckoned with in 2016. “Our team is very well-positioned for the upcoming season. I’m ready to go, and can’t wait for the racing to finally get started,” said Lohr. “This year my name is even embroidered into the cover of my RECARO racing shell. The brand has accompanied me throughout my racing career, and I’ve always been able to count on the safety and quality of its seats. For me as a race driver, that confidence is extremely important, as it allows me to have a clear head so that I can fully concentrate on racing.”
