WIEHL, Germany — BPW Group announced it will provide support for T Sport Bernau for the 2020 truck-racing season.

PE Automotive GmbH & Co. KG and BPW Bergische Achsen KG have extended their partnership with the team for 2020. The BPW Aftermarket Group Deutschland as well as the brands Monark and Ermax are also getting involved.

The Coronavirus continues to cause disruption for the racing team – one of the most important races of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship, the Truck Grand Prix at the Nürburgring in July, has already been cancelled. As things stand at the moment, six further races will be held between the end of August and mid-November.

Katrin Köster, Head of Corporate Communications at BPW, regrets that the German Truck Grand Prix has been cancelled this year: “The Corona crisis has once again highlighted that truck drivers are the backbone of our economy. The FIA ETRC with its teams expresses how passionate these drivers are for their profession in particular. But of course the health of the spectators and all those involved comes first.”
