PARIS – The NASCAR Whelen Euro Series has announced its revised schedule, which will feature six weekends of racing in six different countries.
Five NASCAR GPs – Italy at Vallelunga, Belgium at Zolder, Germany at Hockenheim, Czech Republic at Most and Spain at Valencia – already dates set and they will host four races each: two for the EuroNASCAR PRO championship and two for the EuroNASCAR 2 championship.
While under present conditions it is not possible to stage a NASCAR Whelen Euro Series event at Brands Hatch in England, officials hope to reschedule the event for later in the season.
“We are very happy and proud to offer this great calendar to our competitors and European fans,” declared Jerome Galpin, NASCAR Whelen Euro Series President/CEO. “We would like to thank our amazing circuit partners for all their support during these challenging times. We work all together to make sure competitors and hopefully race fans will come to the races in the best possible safety conditions and we will adapt our rules and procedures accordingly. We are ready to roll and can’t wait to get back on track!”
The NASCAR Whelen Euro Series season will begin at the Autodromo Piero Taruffi of Vallelunga on Sept. 12-13. The Italian track will welcome the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series for the first time with a new event.
The series will then visit two historic tracks. Belgium’s Circuit Zolder will host the American Festival NASCAR for the sixth time on Oct. 3-4, while the Hockenheimring in Germany will celebrate the fourth edition of the American Fan Fest on Oct. 17-18.
On Nov. 14-15, the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series will head to the Czech Republic for the second edition of the Autodrom Most NASCAR Show, before closing the season at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo of Valencia, Spain, on Dec. 5-6 with the eighth Valencia NASCAR Fest.
