Racecar Euroseries announces official NASCAR link-up

Tuesday, January 17 2012

The DTM-supporting Racecar Euroseries has been confirmed as Europe's first official NASCAR Touring Series, becoming the doorstep for European drivers to race in NASCAR in the USA.

The series, which visits Brands Hatch for the second time on 18-20 May, was formed in 2009 and uses cars similar to those seen in the States, with powerful V8 engines. The category will now benefit from knowledge and experience directly from NASCAR with the aim at encouraging European drivers to compete in America's premier series.

The series will remain under the exclusive management of its organisers Team FJ, and will remain as an FIA International Series.

"We are proud to welcome Euro-Racecar to our family of NASCAR regional tours in the USA, Canada and Mexico" said NASCAR Regional and Touring Series Vice President George Silbermann. "Fans can enjoy the excitement of great stock car racing in locations across Europe, while talented drivers take the important first step on NASCAR's ladder system."

Jérôme Galpin, creator of the series said: "It's a great day for everyone who participated in the Racecar Euroseries adventure. Joining NASCAR maens entering a great family where key words are passion, professionalism and commitment. This agreement is a fantastic boost for our series to become one of the main motorsport series in Europe."

The Racecar Euroseries will support the DTM German Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch on 18-20 May. For more information or to book tickets call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
