On the occasion of Chinon Classic, the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series was demonstrated in the streets of the medieval city. Here is the summary of this weekend in Chinon…

Following the stop of competitions at Tours Speedway, Jerome Galpin and his team wanted to still have a demonstration in France. So in Chinon took place this show where Jérôme Galpin (President of the NWES), Franck Violas (Team Manager of RDV Competition), Ulysse Delsaux (2018 Elite 2 Division Champion) and Wilfried Boucenna (Ex driver of KNAUF Racing Team) have done many demonstration runs in front of a quickly conquered public.

Perhaps linked to a late communication (a week before the event), NASCAR fans were few but the NWES has managed a real success. After each demonstration, dozens of spectators gathered in front of the NWES structure to take pictures, ask for autographs or talk with the drivers. Without a doubt, dozens of new fans will follow this week’s competition weekend in Most (Czech Republic) where the drivers will compete for the 7th and 8th rounds of the season.

On the drivers side, we could see a broad smile after each run. They gave themselves 100% on the track: Donuts, drift and fast runs. What satisfy the crowd Chinonais.
We would like to thank Team FJ for the welcome throughout the weekend.
