The first Greek in Euro NASCAR: Thomas Krasonis building himself a NASCAR career

Total Racing Interview of Thomas Krasonis

Press Release: Bittersweet symphony in EuroNASCAR Czech Republic GP

Thomas participated in the 7th and 8th round of NWES, the weekend of 29 and 30 June 2019 at Autodrom Most. The Czech Republic GP was a bittersweet experience as we had an engine failure during qualifying, a good Saturday race starting at the very end and managing a P16 finish, and again a bitter Sunday starting P13 when racing incidents at the first corners created minor body damage that led to tire failure and retirement although we had already climbed to P9 and were fighting for P8.

 

 

 

“I had to start the first race from the back of the grid due to an engine failure that happened during qualifying. I managed to finish 16th.

In the second race i started 13th but after a tire failure i had to retire while fighting for 8th place.”

 

 

 

“I want to thank my team Alex Caffi Motorsport for the support and huge amounts of effort they put into making my car competitive.
Next race will be announced soon.”

Nascar Whelen Euro Series: Thomas Krasonis interview

Press Release: Top10 club in EuroNASCAR UK GP

Thomas participated in the 5th and 6th round of NWES, the weekend of 1 and 2 June 2019 at Brands Hatch. The UK GP brought us a Super Pole entry during qualifying, a great Saturday race leading in a P7 finish, and a bitter Sunday race when a racing incident at Druids corner led to a drive through penalty that resulted in P25.

 

 

“Saturday was an incredible day since I managed to enter my first super pole and finish in the TOP-10 for the first time in the 7th position.

On Sunday things didn’t work out the same way , while fighting for 15th place I got a drive through penalty and ended up 25th.”

 

 

 

“I want to thank my amazing team Alex Caffi Motorsports for the work they put in to make my car extremely competitive and my Spotter!

See you all at the next race.”
