VIDEO: EuroNASCAR Valencia Race 1 Onboard Highlights

Enjoy the onboard highlights from Race 1 at the NASCAR GP Spain – Valencia NASCAR Fest, the opening round of this year’s NASCAR Wheelen Euro Series championship.

EuroNASCAR – Valencia: Thomas Krasonis grabs 7th place after the first race of the season

Thomas Krasonis climbed from 14th to 7th place in the first race of this season, giving battles until the last lap.

The first race of the NASCAR Wheelen Euro Series at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia ended positively for Thomas Krasonis.

The young Greek driver started from 14th place, having found it difficult to make a clean lap in the qualifiers that took place earlier on Saturday.

Thus, the goal was to make a good recovery in the race, which started at 17:00 in Spain.

In the rolling start, Thomas was in his element and managed to win 4 places at the end of the first round, climbing 10th.

Lap by lap he was gaining ground, and by the lap  5 he had managed to pass for 9th place.

On lap 6, the #22 of Justin Kunz had a puntcure, and this allowed Krasonis to get up on P8.

In the next 9 laps, he had Naveh Talor and Advait Deodhar up close, who seemed to lag behind the rhythm of the Greek driver. Indeed, with 3 laps left, he managed to pass Deodhar first, while in the penultimate lap he fought with Talor, passing him temporarily, before returning to the 7th position, where he finished.

Seven winning places in the 60 km race for Krasonis, who is now waiting for the start order of the race for tomorrow (11:30 Greece, LIVE here), determined by the fastest laps of each driver from today’s race.

The standings after Race 1, which you can watch here.

NASCAR GP Spain – 2021 Valencia NASCAR Fest Preview

The 2021 NASCAR Euro Wheelen Series begins this weekend at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, and Thomas Krasonis will be competing in the EuroNASCAR 2 category, with the EuroNASCAR FJ 2020 car.

It’s been a long time coming for this return in the racing bucket for Thomas. After a very positive test session in Italy a couple of weeks ago, the Academy Motorsport driver is ready to tackle the first round of the 2021 season, in Valencia.

It’s a track Thomas knows very well, having raced there previously in 2019, in his first year in the EuroNASCAR championship.

The 4.005 km circuit in the southeast of Spain offers a good mix of slow, tight corners, and more fast kinks that pose a challenge for the drivers, especially when driving these beasts that the NASCAR cars are.

Thomas and the other 29 drivers will also have a crowd to cheer them as they go after the track announced that it will allow the presence of 2000 spectators in the grandstands for the whole weekend.

The schedule for the race weekend:

Facts about the track:

  • Length 4.005 km (2.488 mi)
  • Turns 14
  • EuroNASCAR track record: 1:40.764 – Alon Day (Chevrolet Camaro NASCAR)

Announcement for the 2021 season

In 2019, we participated in a new category for us, the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series.

In 2021, we continue our journey and we’re really happy about that.
I will be competing in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series, but with a few changes since the last time.
Our partnership with Alex Caffi’s team, called Academy Motosport, will continue, with me joining the team in the EuroNASCAR Elite 2 category, driving the #2 Ford Mustang. On top of that, Jacques Villeneuve, F1 champion and all-around motorsport legend will be my teammate during this season.
As you read these lines, I will be already taking part in the first official test ahead of the new season, getting to grips with the beast that this 500 HP Mustang is, and getting to know the talented competition that this category provides.
The championship commences in 3 weeks, on 15-16 of May, with the first two races at Circuito Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, and it will conclude in fall, at the Vallelunga Circuit, after 7 race weekends and 14 races.
I look forward to this challenge, for all the on-track battles, for the competition. I can’t wait to get back in the car, get my seatbelt done and go pedal to the medal!
In this journey, I want you with me.
I will update you on everything, from my website and my social media.
It’s on!
-Thomas Krasonis

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.”
