After the weekend in Valencia, Nascar Whelen Euro Series competitors meet this weekend in Franciacorta, Italy. The opportunity for us to talk about the issues of the weekend…

33 cars will be present on the grid, this record confirms the progression of the series and promises us animated races throughout the weekend

In Elite 1, Ander Vilariño who dominated the competition in Valencia will have a big challenge: He never raced on Franciarcorta while Alon Day won 3 of the 4 races that took place in Franciacorta or Stienes Longin who is on a series of 4 second place on the Italian track. It will be interesting to follow his progress throughout the weekend.

Luigi Ferrara (2018 vice champion of TCR Italy) will make his debut in the sport in the n°42 Ford Mustang for 42 Racing by FS Motorsport.

In Elite 2, Giorgio Maggi and Vittorio Ghirelli occupy the top of the standings and are separated by only one point in the championship. Myatt Snider and Andre Castro in Valencia both prove that they are serious candidates for the title despite their colision in round 1 and will be among the favorites this weekend.
