EuroNASCAR Brands Hatch: Top 10 finish for Thomas Krasonis on Race 2

Thomas Krasonis climbed up 7 places to grab P9 in an amazing Race 2 at the Brands Hatch circuit.

After a dismal Race 1 in a track that Thomas knows very well and likes as much as any circuit, Race 2 saw him getting a hard-fought top 10 finishing position.

Having started from P16, since he had achieved the 16th fastest lap time during Saturday’s race, he had an uplift battle to score points.

And battle he did, as he gained two positions on the opening lap, and steadily built on that.

One retirement in front of him, helped him reach P13, and then had his eyes set on a top 10 spot.

In the next 10 laps, he clinically passed his opponents, with his last battle for P9 being the most impressive, as he closed up to Veronesi, who was 4 seconds ahead of him. He cut down the gap, and then made the pass to ensure he had a good spot to stay in the top 10, and in the meantime he had achieved a lap time of 50.6 seconds, the 5th fastest of the race.

In a track where the overtaking is difficult, due to its narrow straights and many medium-speed corners, Thomas put on a show and he achieved his goal, which is always a top 10 finishing position.

In addition to the points that P9 awards in EuroNASCAR, Thomas gained 4 more points for his overtakes during the race.

EuroNASCAR Brands Hatch – Mechanical issue haults Thomas Krasonis’ progress in Race 1

Thomas Krasonis had to retire from Race 1 at the Brands Hatch NASCAR weekend, due to a failure on the gearbox.

It was one of those days for Thomas Krasonis, who failed to finish the first of two races at the Brands Hatch circuit, because his gearbox failed in an unfortunate event.

Thomas started the race from P14, and even though he lost one position after the first lap, he climbed up to P12 after the Safety Car period ended.

For the next 6-7 laps, he continuously battled with his teammate, Vladimiros Tziortzis, as well as Naveh Talor and Yevgen Sokolovskiy for P11.

However, on lap 19 he suffered a problem with his gearbox on the EuroNASCAR FJ 2020 car, and had to pull off the racing line and onto the grass, to retire the car.

It was a really good showing of attacking, yet patient driving style from Krasonis, who will now aim for a better result come Race 2, on Sunday afternoon.
