Congratulations to Steffi for coming in fourth place in the overall drivers' rankings of the 2019 European Truck Racing Championship
Jarama circuit, Madrid (Spain) - The European Truck Racing Championship ended on Sunday 6th October at the Jarama circuit (Madrid). After eight Grand Prix races in Misano (Italy), Hungaroring (Hungary), Slovakia ring (Slovakia), Nürburgring (Germany), Most (Czech Rep.), Zolder (Belgium) and Le Mans (France), the championship saw the victory of Jochen Hahn of Iveco and Die Bullen von Iveco Magirus in the team standings.
The Fassi Group wanted to seize the opportunity offered by GIS 2019, the Italian Cranes & Access and Heavy Transport Show, held at Piacenza Expo from 3rd to 5th October, to present a series of new products. At the same time, the company takes advantage of the only Italian event dedicated to the world of lifting and heavy transport, areas in which Fassi products are particularly valued and play a leading role.
The president of the Fassi Group, the man who laid the groundwork so that we could become who we are, left us unexpectedly due to illness.
He remained in the business until 1st August this year, always present and attentive at the age of 89, which he celebrated last February and which brought with it the activity and lucidity that have always distinguished him.
Franco Fassi leaves us today with a great legacy of identifying values, which he was very keen on. "We have always remained faithful to our history. We have grown, we have always accepted new challenges, we have never stopped or been satisfied".
We would like to remember him with these words of his, which reveal his style, his way of understanding life, work - which was the very reason for his life - more than anything, and to look to the future with great confidence.
The first 14 IVECO Daily 55S8H 4x4s manufactured in the Bolzano plant have been equipped with Fassi F32A cranes and snowploughs by the Briccolani company.
As soon as they were registered, they were delivered to Terna’s various AOT (Operational Transmission Area) centres spread throughout Italy and then immediately put into service. The 14 IVECO Daily 55S8H 4x4s, the first from the new range manufactured in the Bolzano plant, will be joining another six similar vehicles already in operation since January 2018. This is a significant delivery from Iveco CNH, which has chosen to equip their vehicles with Fassi F32A.0.23 cranes. It is a complex fitting that best responds to the requirements of Terna, one of the most important grid operators for the transmission of energy throughout Europe and the manager of the Italian high-voltage network, one of the most modern and technologically advanced in Europe.
The presence of the Fassi logo on the right arm of the new rising star in Italian motorbiking Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia.
Mugello (Italy) – 1-2 June. The first instance of this dates back to 2007, when the Fassi Gru logo made its appearance on the Honda LCR ridden by Carlos Checa and managed by Lucio Cecchiniello’s team. Twelve years on, Fassi Gru returns to the MotoGP, this time at the side, or rather on the right arm, of the Moto2 world champion and rising star in Italian motorbiking Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia. The driver is a choice of partner who, together with Fassi Gru’s recent pairing with the skier Sofia Goggia, highlights the crane manufacturer’s focus on the rise of young Italian sporting champions as well as the desire to associate its image of continuous development and cutting-edge technology with sporting performance where speed and pushing the limits is a fundamental component, while always remaining focused on safety.
