Getting ready for 2024

During the winter break Thomas Krasonis followed an intensive preparation programme in order to be ready for the new season.

In addition to daily training at a professional level, the preparation included the Greek driver’s participation in the World Series at the New Smyrna Speedway in Florida, USA. It was Krasoni’s second year in this particular week of racing, with the results attesting to the fact that the work done over the winter was significant, with finishes in the top ten of the races.

At the end of March Thomas was in Belgium and the Zolder circuit, where he conducted testing ahead of the new season.

This was followed by a stint at the Venray oval circuit, where he had the opportunity to drive in the V8 Oval Series and become more familiar with the conditions on this type of circuit.


A year of high expectations

“2024 starts for us with high expectations. The renewal of the partnership with Marko Stipp Motorsport last December was the first step. In the months leading up to it, I worked hard on a daily basis with the experienced team of professional trainers in order to be fully prepared to meet the increased demands of participating in two Championships,” said Thomas Krasonis.

“This year we decided to participate in both EuroNASCAR classes. The reason was twofold. On the one hand, we want to do as many kilometres as possible in order to further improve our racing level. On the other hand, our wish was to have the number 46 race car in its entirety in order to be able to work on the set up more closely, which was not possible while sharing the car with another teammate, racing only in PRO” he added.

“There’s a five-year plan that I’m following with the goal of becoming a NASCAR Cup Series driver in the United States. My team has given me everything I need to fight for my goals, so I have full confidence in them. We have developed a great chemistry with the whole team, and that’s something that helps me a lot,” Thomas Crasonis continued.
