Thomas Krasonis previews the NASCAR GP Croatia
Autodrom Most proved to be a tough one for Thomas Krasonis, who takes the positives from that weekend onto the one here in Grobnik.
Automotodrom Grobnik: that’s the next stop on this year’s NASCAR Whelen Euro Series, the 7th and 8th round of the championship.
It is a relatively short track, measuring at 4.168 km, with 18 turns. The Cavle-based circuit is characterised by the long flat-out zone on the start-finish straight and the fast right-handed kink before that, exiting out of the last proper corner.
The inner part of the circuit is quite more technical, resembling Most, which should put Thomas at a good place coming into this weekend.
Let’s not forget that Thomas Krasonis did the most overtakes in one race last time out in the Czech track, as you can see from this onboard video below:
-What part of the weekend at Most do you choose to keep with you for this GP?
”The fact that I had the speed and I was really competitive. Thes things boost my morale and help me go forward, because they show me that I improve my craft in each and every race.”
-How much acquainted are you with the Grobnik circuit?
”This will be the first time I race at this track. I have studied video footage and I am prepared for it as much as I can before actually driving in it.”
-What are your expectations for the latter part of this year’s championship?
”I think it’s about time to get the results I want. I am ready for this, and it’s only a matter of time before it happens.”
