Undoubtedly 2019 is going to be a very exciting racing year for me.
We have decided to compete in selective races at the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series, the Italian Mini Challenge 2019 and Peter Auto historic classic car events.
First stop Valencia , Spain on April 13th. ( NASCAR Whelen Euro Series )
Hopefully, for 2019 my circuit life will be very interesting. At the same time my academic obligations are very serious too, and this constitutes one more challenge.
My friends stay tuned, news are going to be thrilling!!
I would like to extend a warm thank you to my athletic association ASMA for awarding me for my motosport achievements in 2018.
New years resolutions are behind us and decisions had to be made regarding 2019.
So, I am in the happy position to confirm that I will be following the Mini Challenge Italia 2019 Championship. I do use the term confirm and not announce since many of our friends guessed our decision some time ago.
But stay tuned, because God willing there will also be other racing activities for me to participate this year.
I will keep you posted as soon as possible.
#99 meeting #78
Fellow mini challenge pilot and brother in arms Andrea Tronconi, met with Thomas and they had some leisure time together, during an Athens business trip of Andrea in November 2018.
Getting ready for the NASCAR WHELEN Euro Series test next month and taking a break from studying, I visited the MINI official stand at AUTOKINISI car expo 2018.
Another racing season came to an end, not to the best result within the team’s potential, as I finished my last race in 5th place at Monza and this led in a 4th position overall for the Mini Challenge Lite Championship ( 2018 season).
I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart Stratis Chatzipanagiotou and 4troxoi magazine for their help and constant support, Giannis-Marios Papadopoulos and Cosmote TV, Stamatis Katsimis and Harris Bourothanassopoulos who helped me become a competitive driver, my personal trainers Stamatis Lenis and Vangelis Houchoumis, my manager Stelios Fakalis and of course my family and especially my father who has been on my side from the beginning constantly watching me become a more competitive driver every year.
We have not yet decided upon the Championship in which we will participate next year, but we will keep you updated as soon as final decisions will be made.
