NWES 2022: Martin Doubek and Hendriks Motorsport extend their partnership
Hendriks Motorsport and Martin Doubek will compete in the 2022 NWES season together – The EuroNASCAR 2 champion will pull double duties
Martin Doubek will continue to compete for Hendriks Motorsport in the 2022 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series (NWES). The 2021 EuroNASCAR 2 champion will be defending his title as well as chasing points in the EuroNASCAR PRO category. This is not the first time the Czech has competed in both championships.
Doubek is a true NWES veteran, racing in the European NASCAR championship since 2015. He made starts in both championships from 2015 to 2019, but he didn’t make his breakthrough until 2020, when he focused most of his efforts on the EuroNACAR 2 series. He took his first win in Belgium and thus broke the knot.
Just one year later, he shared the car with NWES champion Loris Hezemans and secured the title in a dramatic title fight against his Hendriks teammate Tobias Dauenhauer in the final race of the season at the Autodromo di Vallelunga. It was the first major title on the European stage for the 27-year-old, who will defend the trophy in 2022 and also compete against the NWES elite.
“I am extremely happy to announce that this year I will be competing in both the EuroNASCAR PRO and EuroNASCAR 2 championships in the #7 Ford Mustang of the Hendriks Motorsport team,” said Doubek. “2022 will be my eighth year in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series and this year I want to proudly defend my EuroNASCAR 2 title and go for repeating the feat of 2021 again.”
“By competing in both championships, I hope to actually achieve this expectation,” continued Doubek. “I’m also really looking forward to Rounds 7 and 8 of the championship, which will be held in my home country of the Czech Republic. I would like to show the Czech public what I can do by shining in front of my own home crowd”.
The 2022 NWES season kicks off on April 9 and 10 at the Hockenheimring in Germany. The series then will visit Spain, Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Belgium and Croatia. With the All-Star Race in Italy and an event on an ice track, there are still two special events on the schedule.
