Reigning Challenger Trophy winner Kenko Miura will return in the ELITE 1 Division and will be joined at the wheel of the #2 Toyota Camry by finnish rookie Jesse Vartiainen in the ELITE 2 Division, while Pierluigi Veronesi will enter his second NWES season on the #27 Mustang in ELITE 2.
After winning by 3 points a thrilling battle for the Challenger Trophy that went down to the very last race at Circuit Zolder in 2018, Kenko Miura is looking forward to another ultra-competitive season in Euro NASCAR’s top division.
“My history in NASCAR began the same year Alex Caffi Motorsports was founded. My growth has been the growth of the team, and as soon as the team will make more progress, I will also progress and will deliver better results. The team perfectly understands my way of driving and how to put me in the best spot to perform,” said the Japanese driver. “Last year I was able to gain a lot of experience, so I’d like to seek further speed with my Euro NASCAR car and take one more step forward to earn better results. I think I can drive a little more aggressively and I want to continue defend the Challenger Trophy.”
