ΝΑSCAR GP Czech Republic – Coming in hot after the podium
Thomas Krasonis returns from the summer break, ready to give everything he has after the podium finish at Vallelunga. Next stop: Autodrom Most!
On 3 and 4 of September, Thomas Krasonis and the Academy Motorsport team will compete in the third round of this year’s EuroNASCAR championship, the NASCAR GP Czech Republic.
We sat down with Thomas for a quick Q&A, to get his feeling after the long weeks without a race.
-How was the summer break for you?
I didn’t have enough time to go to vacations this summer, due to the commitments I had. Now I’m ready for the races at Most!
-Talk us through the experience of working with the Centaurus Racing Team.
It was a beautiful and unique experience. It’s a group of 42 mechanics and enginners from the University of Thessaly, and they outdid themselves in order to build and race this race car. They have my utmost respect, and I thank them for the opportunity to compete with it.
-What are your past experiences at the Most circuit?
I have raced there before. It’s a very fast flowing and pleasing to drive in track. In fact, it’s one of my favorites in the EuroNASCAR calendar!
-So, what are your expectations for the race weekened in Czechia?
If everything goes to plan, I don’t believe I lack in any aspect to the guys in front. Good qualifying and a good start will help us take a solid result, with the goal always being a finishing position in the top 10.
