European Vice Champion Jochen Hahn Relies on Bosch Technology for His Race Truck
“These are all custom-made parts,” some might probably think, but actually the amount of series-production parts used for the race truck of the European vice champion is pretty high. This fact proves the high quality and resilience of Bosch products. After all, truck drivers around the world rely on these characteristics – not only the European vice champion and triple European champion in 2011, 2012, and 2013.
The Diesel Engine: Bosch Common-Rail Direct Injection
At this racing engine it’s all about the mixture. Genuine series-production parts with and without special motorsports modifications are used as well as custom-built parts. The commonrail
system features injectors specifically designed for high performances. A CP9 high-pressure pump, usually used for marine diesel engines, generates quite some pressure. The installed series-production ECU is known as EDC7. Whereas the basic software is also used in series production, the MAN and Bosch Motorsport software add-on is “pure racing.” It improves the performance adjusting the running characteristics. Also wear parts play an important role in the race truck: wiper blades, filters, batteries, and relais from Bosch make sure of this.
The European Truck Racing Championship 2015 is expected to become a very special season for the motorsport racers. For the first time in many years, truck racing will take place without manufacturer support.
