Through its close association with customers and drivers, Renault Trucks shares its passion for trucks. The manufacturer, involved in truck racing since 2007, now offers the opportunity to everybody to discover this exciting world with a free, incredibly realistic video game. It is based on the race performances of a real truck, the Renault Premium Racing equipped with a DXi 13 engine supplied and developed by Renault Trucks. Thanks to its racing experience, the manufacturer has been able to accelerate the development and enhancement of its series vehicles to the benefit of all its customers.
So here you are at the wheel of a 1,110hp Premium racing truck with 5,100Nm of torque. And we wouldnt advise you to miss the warm-ups and time trials your one chance to get used to handling this beast Because when youre mixing it up with the other competitors its a completely different ball game and to make a good race of it, dont hesitate to elbow out the other trucks (although without doing too much damage to the mechanics you will be alerted to damage suffered in real time!). With three levels of difficulty in the game, everybody can enjoy it at their own speed. And aspiring truck drivers can select the pro mode and remove the ESP, ABS and ASR to go for the manual gearbox!
Truck Racing is a real success amongst drivers and hauliers. Almost 200,000 spectators turned up on the Nuburgring circuit in Germany! The manufacturer has been involved since 2007 with the Frankie truck racing team. Renault Trucks provides logistics vehicles (2 Magnums, 2 Premium Long Distance, 1 Midlum and a Master) along with maintenance and engine development. This racing experience is a unique opportunity for the brands engineers, allowing them to test new materials and components and new technical solutions. From this most demanding laboratory they derive successful developments that the customer will benefit from in series vehicles.
