Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

Most people go to the Nürburgring 24 to see race cars. Some people go there driving trucks. And the Ram really seems to be the F-150 of Europe.

You’ve already seen the coolest truck in the whole of Nurburg and the truck that could take me anywhere and back, but how about the rest of the truck fleet around the Nordschleife? Well, it was pretty Dodge-heavy.

Let’s go through them one by one, shall we?
