Thomas Krasonis at Brands Hatch

This year’s great “adventure” of participating in the Nascar Euro Whelen continues for Thomas Krasonis, who after the excellent results in Spain and Italy, returns to a country dear to him: the UK.

The first Greek professional racing driver is already in Brands Hatch, where the third race weekend of this season’s EuroNASCAR will take place.

With a length of 1,944 metres, six corners and no real straights for the 400 hp V8 engines to… unleash their virtues, Brands Hatch has gained a reputation as one of the most difficult circuits in the EuroNASCAR calendar. The reason, of course, is none other than the track’s physical profile, which creates unique corners, such as the steep downhill section at Paddock Hill Bend immediately followed by the uphill Druids hairpin. It takes perfect harmony between driver and car to become the king and prince of NASCAR in the UK.

The historic Indy Circuit of Brands Hatch will once again welcome the EuroNASCAR gladiators for the eleventh running of American SpeedFest. SpeedFest has proved to be an amazing spectacle for competitors and fans alike and with more than 50,000 people attending the tenth anniversary edition in 2023, expect the 2024 edition to live up to its hype with even more Pure Racing on-track action and a huge variety of off-track activities.

Thomas Krasonis is competing this year in both EuroNASCAR classes, EuroNASCAR 2 and EuroNASCAR PRO, with the team with which he made 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 10.50 a.m. (local time) for both classes.

The first PRO category race will be held on Saturday at 3.35 p.m. (local time), while the first PRO category race will be held at 6.50 p.m. (local time).

The three-day programme will conclude on Sunday with the two categories’ races. Specifically, at 3.35 p.m. the start of the second race for EuroNASCAR PRO will be given, followed at 6.45 p.m. by the EuroNASCAR 2 race.
