The 2021 NASCAR Euro Wheelen Series begins this weekend at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, and Thomas Krasonis will be competing in the EuroNASCAR 2 category, with the EuroNASCAR FJ 2020 car.
It’s been a long time coming for this return in the racing bucket for Thomas. After a very positive test session in Italy a couple of weeks ago, the Academy Motorsport driver is ready to tackle the first round of the 2021 season, in Valencia.
It’s a track Thomas knows very well, having raced there previously in 2019, in his first year in the EuroNASCAR championship.
The 4.005 km circuit in the southeast of Spain offers a good mix of slow, tight corners, and more fast kinks that pose a challenge for the drivers, especially when driving these beasts that the NASCAR cars are.
Thomas and the other 29 drivers will also have a crowd to cheer them as they go after the track announced that it will allow the presence of 2000 spectators in the grandstands for the whole weekend.
