Thomas Krasonis “touched” the podium in Vallelunga

Thomas Krasonis was just a breath away from reaching the podium in the first race of the EuroNASCAR category “2” at the Vallelunga circuit.

The Greek driver of Marko Stipp Motorsport started from 22nd on the grid, but by doing amazing things on a track he particularly likes, he managed to reach fourth place in the final classification.

“It was a very, very good race. Everything went smoothly, we had a very good pace, avoided the difficult situations and by maintaining high speed throughout the race, we came very close to the winners’ podium,” said Thomas Krasonis.

In the PRO category race, luck was not on the side of the Greek driver. He started from 18th place, but an accident close to him resulted in him dropping to 22nd place in the classification. With a sustained counterattack, Thomas Krasonis managed to climb up to 14th place, where he finished.

Sunday’s schedule includes the second races in both the “2” category (at 11.10 a.m. ET) and the “PRO” category (at 2.55 p.m. ET).
