Beside Tobias Dauenhauer and Marcel Lenerz, GT4 race winner Alex Lambertz now tested a EuroNASCAR car – The German considers starting in the series

The NASCAR Whelen Euro Series (NWES) seems to get more attractive to young motorsport talents from Germany. In November, Tobias Dauenhauer and Marcel Lenerz already tested the V8 biests in France. Alex Lambertz took over a NWES wheel in December in Fontenay Le Comte and the car suited him well right from the beginning.

“The test in France was positive,” he said to ‘Leadlap.net’. “It was nice to drive those cars, but it’s nothing compared to a GT4 car because of the missing aero and other things. I had to adapt to them in the beginning.”

But that are no negative comments by the German: “It reminded me of our old BMW that we built up by ourselves. The car is nice and awesome to drive. If the offer is good enough, I’m interested in starting in the series. I was positively surprised by the people that are working there. Everybody was friendly and the communication with the engineers worked pretty well.”

In EuroNASCAR racing, the driver’s skills make the difference, a aspect Lambertz really liked. He said: “There are no driving aids and you have to work hard in those cars. I really like that and it puts the driver’s skills in the spotlight.”

Lambertz is 22 years old and comes from Heinsberg in Germany. He has plenty of racing experience thanks to his starts in the VLN at the Nürburgring and the GT4 European Series, where he already won races. Maybe his path will lead him into the grid of the 2020 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series.

On February 27, 2020 there will be another opportunity to test one of the NWES cars. Due to the high request to take part in the recruitment program, the series has decided to offer an additional test day in France.
