EuroNASCAR 2 champion Lasse Soerensen on the hunt for Alon Day
The season finale of the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series in Valencia is imminent – In Grobnik Lasse Soerensen once again collected important points in the fight for the title
The NASCAR Whelen Euro Series (NWES) season is slowly coming to an end. Due to the coronavirus pandemic several races had to be cancelled. The planned season finale in Hockenheim was moved to the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain. Alon Day (PK Carsport) leads the championship, but Lasse Soerensen (DF1 Racing) is right behind the Israeli.
In the EuroNASCAR PRO championship, the Dane is therefore still hoping for the title. Soerensen is the first chaser of Day and showed two strong races on the new track in Grobnik on the Croatian Riviera, which will make him dream of the NWES title ahead of the finale.
Both on Saturday and Sunday Soerensen made it to the podium in the EuroNASCAR PRO championship as third. The current EuroNASCAR 2 champion collected important points in the title fight. The DF1 Racing driver proved his comeback qualities in the second race as so often and drove from sixth to third place. After the races in Croatia the gap to Day is only 14 points.
Valencia will decide the championship
In addition, the Dane leads the hard-fought Junior Te chrophy for drivers under 25 years of age. “It was a good weekend and I think we the most of it”, said Soerensen. “I am happy to lead the Junior Trophy and to be second in the overall ranking”.
Already on December 3rd the fight for the title in the EuroNASCAR PRO championship continues. The season will culminate in a double header in Valencia, Spain. This means that Soerensen still has four races left to intercept Day in the championship and extend his lead in the Junior Trophy.
But the Israeli has already won two NWES titles. With his 22 career victories he is one of the most successful drivers in the history of the series. Day knows exactly what it takes to win the championship under pressure.
