Fassi Gru supports Steffi Halm and her IVECO S-WAY R in the FIA European Truck Racing Championship 2021

Fassi Gru has confirmed its support of the talented German driver Steffi Halm who will be racing an IVECO S-WAY R for the IVECO Schwabentruck team.

Following the cancellation of the 2020 championship, which, due to the COVID-19 emergency, did not see the completion of a sufficient number of races to allow the title to be assigned, the FIA European Truck Racing Championship (ETRC) has recommenced this year, more motivated than ever to complete the continental series, as is the case with all the other important motoring championships governed by FIA.

For the second year running, Fassi Gru will have its logo on the bikes of Marco Bezzecchi and Celestino Vietti, the two Moto2™ racers of the SKY Racing Team VR46 and also on that of the young talent in MotoGP™ Luca Marini, racer of the SKY VR46 AVINTIA team.

This doubles Fassi Gru’s presence in MotoGP, following the renewal of the partnership with Francesco Bagnaia after his debut in the Ducati Lenovo Team.

The Fassi XR710 crane, ready for the Far East markets

The Fassi XR710 is a model with a rigid single boom and winch, extremely simple in construction and proposed for markets in non-European areas where this type of crane is mainly used.

Fassi takes another step forward in its strategic vision as a global player in the lifting sector, strengthening the Fassi Asia Pacific division, based in Nilai, near Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, with the development of a range of cranes designed specifically for that geographical area, and more generally for international markets where there is a strong demand for this type of crane. The goal is to develop a range of "stiff boom cranes", products that have important differences in contrast to the cranes produced so far by the Fassi Group.
Fassi Official Partner of the SKY Racing Team VR46

This year Fassi Gru is present as Official Partner to the riders from the SKY Racing Team VR46 taking part in the Moto2 and Moto3 World Championships

A focus on people, passion and a desire to succeed are the characteristics that Fassi Gru shares with the SKY Racing Team VR46, a team that gathers together the best talents from the VR46 Riders Academy, created and managed by the champion of Tavullia. This is why the Bergamo-based company has decided to take on the role of the team’s Official Partner for this season of the World Championships, supporting the riders Luca Marini and Marco Bezzecchi in Moto 2, and Celestino Vietti and Andrea Migno in Moto 3, who will all be displaying the Fassi Gru logo on the cowl tails of their bikes.
