All set for Round 2 of Nascer Whelen Euro Series

EuroNASCAR, round two for Thomas Krasonis. The first Greek professional racing driver, after the excellent first race weekend in Valencia, travels to Italy to participate in the second round of the Championship.

The Vallelunga Circuit has its roots in horse racing and was originally an oval track, where car races were also held. However, the track quickly evolved into a purely racing track, with fast and technical sections.

Parts of the track were designed by Italian racing legend Piero Taruffi, who raced in Formula 1 in the 1950s. Since the first visit in 2020, the EuroNASCAR V8 engines have proven to be a perfect match for the track and the 29,000 fan stands.

Thomas Krasonis is competing this year in both EuroNASCAR categories, EuroNASCAR 2 and EuroNASCAR PRO, with the team with which he took the big step in his racing career in 2023, Marko Stipp Motorsport.

Thomas is driving the number “46” Chevrolet Camaro at all Championship tracks this year, following a full schedule to maximise his track time and challenge for both titles.

The three-day race schedule begins on Friday with a total of four practice sessions, each lasting 30 minutes.

PRO qualifying will take place on Saturday at 10.20 a.m. (local time) for both classes.

The first race of the PRO category will take place on Saturday at 2.40 p.m. (local time), while that of the “2” category at 6.25 p.m.

The three-day programme will conclude on Sunday with the two categories’ races. Specifically, at 11.10 a.m. the start of the second race for EuroNASCAR 2 will be given, followed at 2.55 p.m. by the EuroNASCAR PRO race.
