DRIVER BIO – Began Truck Racing at the end of the 2018 season. Started to handle the Truck better during the 2019 season finishing 4th overall. 2020  was very disrupted due to the Covid outbreak, and we took the opportunity to completely re-build the Race-truck in readiness for 2021 which again was disrupted. Looking forward to 2022.

FAVOURITE PASTIMES - ANYTHING THAT IS EXCITING AND CHALLENGING

Having been involved with trucks and the road transport industry all of my life I decided back in 1998 to have a go at truck racing, so a second hand (old) ERF race truck was purchased and with it very quickly came significant racing success. Early in 1999 I decided to build a MAN race truck and along with the support of my local MAN truck dealership a race engine was acquired and from then the Team Oliver Racing truck race journey really began, taking me and my team to all UK truck racing venues and then in 2000 I embarked into the FIA European Truck Race Championship, after twice finishing third in the championship, in 2004 I took to the top step by winning the FIA Championship and as well as in the same year notched up my 5th British Championship title, fortunately the championship title wins continued to a tally to date of ten Championship wins and the challenge for more is far from over!

DRIVER BIO – 

Simon began driving diggers and tractors at the age of 12. He started his own business at 20 with his love of diggers, tractors and machinery. Over the years his collection of vintage tractors has grown, which he regularly takes to meets. Over the past few years his love of machinery has seen him flying in a Spitfire, Lancaster and a Hurricane.

After several years as a spectator at truck racing, in 2021 Simon decided to try his hand at racing and purchased his IVECO truck. With a lengthy wait for parts having a new engine built, Simon made his debut late in the season at Pembrey in October. After a successful start to racing in division 1, Simon is looking forward to the 2022 season starting at Brands Hatch.

TEAM NAME - Smith Truck Racing

NUMBER - 46

AGE - 21

PLACE OF BIRTH - 

YEARS RACING - 2

FAVOURITE CIRCUIT - Snetterton

FAVOURITE PASTIMES - Raced high level motocross from the age of 6 till 18 

Grown up around trucks as my dad has his own haulage business Smith4transport and loved going out in them

 

Currently a HGV mechanic full time 

 

Had most of 2017 off from motocross as Tony was racing the SISU for a full season that got me into the race trucks 

 

Passed my HGV license at 18 and done my ARDS course because we had a Iveco race truck at home with a banned engine as it was mechanical so I decided to fit a new engine and give truck Racing a go as I had a passenger ride in 2017 and got the bug!

Every Friday evening we have team evening and then we are working on the truck or discuss things to go faster. We have an old chassis without a extra frame. We try to make this chassis as fast as possible. When we come to the UK we feel us very welcome. In the future we want to build our new race truck. The Volvo F12 we bought from Black Jack Truck racing 4 years ago. For us a very good truck to learn how to do this sport.
