Solaris Motorsport and CAAL Racing will work together in the 2020 NWES season – The Italians will bring the #12 Chevrolet Camaro to the tracks
Since entering the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series (NWES) in 2018, Solaris Motorsport has operated independently in the championship. This will change in 2020, as the Italians have announced a cooperation with the former championship team CAAL Racing. Solaris Motorsport will continue to bring the #12 Chevrolet Camaro to the tracks.
So far, Solaris Motorsport has confirmed only one EuroNASCAR PRO driver, their regular driver Francesco Sini. A driver for the EuroNASCAR 2 championship has not been signed yet. Last year, Naveh Talor was racing for the Italian team, but the Israeli seems to be still looking for the necessary budget.
The cooperation looks as follows: CAAL Racing will help Solaris Motorsport to set up the car, while the experienced family team will provide logistical support. In the paddock, the two teams will continue to operate independently.
“This is a new chapter in our history and an important occasion for all of us to grow. We are very happy about the partnership we signed with CAAL Racing, I’m sure it will bring positive elements to both teams,” said Sini.
CAAL team manager Luca Canneori said: “We are very happy about this partnership. We worked with Francesco for the first time as a driver ten years ago, so we can say that this is a little bit of a comeback and this is very rewarding for us. We want to bring as many cars as possible in the front part of the NWES grid.”
CAAL Racing has already confirmed many of its drivers. After the departure of ex-champion Alon Day, Gianmarco Ercoli will share the car with Arianna Casoli. In addition, Max Lanza has already been confirmed in the #88 car. The #31 car will be shared by the father-son combination: Mauro and Giovanni Trione.
CAAL Racing intends to field a total of four cars. With the Camaro from Solaris Motorsport, there is now an unofficial fifth car that the experienced and successful Italians will send to the 2020 NWES grid.
