EuroNASCAR Italy – Race 2: A final full of overtakes!
Thomas Krasonis signs off this year’s EuroNASCAR championship with a solid P10 position at Vallelunga.
Having started from P16 for the second race of the weekend at Autodromo Vallelunga, Thomas had set a clear goal of passing as many cars as possible, to get a good points’ haul and improve his championship position.
And he did just that, right from the start.
He had a much cleaner and tactical race than Saturday, and managed to climb up 4 places by lap 10, sitting in P12.
Around that time, Tobias Dauenhauer did a mistake and went off track, and when he got back on it, he lost a lot of time, allowing Thomas to catch and pass him in a matter of seconds.
Lanza was attacking Thomas for the next couple of laps, pressuring the Greek driver into making a mistake. However, in a twist of irony, Lanza was the one who made an error, meaning Thomas was able to finish P11.
After the race, a penalty from one of the drivers who passed the checkered flag in front of him promoted him onto P10, for a solid top 10 result.
That was the end of a long season in the EuroNASCAR championship, which started on May 15 and finished 5 months later.
Thomas finishes in P13 in the final standings.
Last but not least, congratulations to Martin Dubek for the EuroNASCAR 2 title. Well deserved!
