Thomas Krasonis had to retire from Race 1 at the Brands Hatch NASCAR weekend, due to a failure on the gearbox.
It was one of those days for Thomas Krasonis, who failed to finish the first of two races at the Brands Hatch circuit, because his gearbox failed in an unfortunate event.
Thomas started the race from P14, and even though he lost one position after the first lap, he climbed up to P12 after the Safety Car period ended.
For the next 6-7 laps, he continuously battled with his teammate, Vladimiros Tziortzis, as well as Naveh Talor and Yevgen Sokolovskiy for P11.
However, on lap 19 he suffered a problem with his gearbox on the EuroNASCAR FJ 2020 car, and had to pull off the racing line and onto the grass, to retire the car.
It was a really good showing of attacking, yet patient driving style from Krasonis, who will now aim for a better result come Race 2, on Sunday afternoon.
