The European Truck Racing Association (ETRA) is proud to announce SmartWitness as a new partner for the 2020 and 2021 FIA ETRC season.
SmartWitness will provide their in-vehicle cameras, recorders and software for all trucks that are participating in the Championship races, which will provide on-demand video support for race officials at the events to help supervise sporting regulations and safety, investigate suspected driving infringements and also provide footage from the cockpits, bringing the excitement of truck racing from the driver’s perspective to the fans.
A world-leading designer and manufacturer of in-vehicle cameras, SmartWitness creates industry-leading safety technology which has produced exceptional results for their clients and has undeniably redefined the way vehicle risk is analysed.
“We are excited to welcome SmartWitness as a new partner to the championship,” said ETRA managing director Georg Fuchs. “Smart Witness are at the forefront of creating industry-leading fleet safety technology. The rugged nature of truck racing provides the best testing ground for recording incidents between vehicles and will undoubtedly also record exciting footage from the action of our truck races.
We trialled the system at our season opening race at Autodrom Most and were really impressed with the footage and the instant availability of images to investigate incidents on track.
The cooperation with SmartWitness fits well into our long-term strategy, which focusses on safety related matters, sustainability transformation and truck driver shortage. SmartWitness has not only delivered benefits to the race track, but also enhanced safety in day-to-day life of our fellow truck drivers on the road. We are happy to be part of this and provide a testing ground within the exciting environment of truck racing.”
