Stienes Longin resigns with PK Carsport in bid for the EuroNASCAR crown
Stienes Longin and PK Carsport quest to win the EuroNASCAR PRO championship in 2020
After lengthy negotiations, the 2019 EuroNASCAR-PRO runner-up and PK Carsport have finally come to terms to prolong their partnership in 2020. After being one of the most consistent drivers in 2019, Stienes Longin had narrowly missed out on a title challenge after heartbreak at the semi-finals in Hockenheim. However, the Belgian ended the season on a high by taking his elusive first EuroNASCAR PRO victory at Zolder, in front of his adoring fans and family. In 2020, Longin wants to use that momentum to win the championship.
Going into his sixth full-time season together with PK Carsport, Longin reckons: “With so many second places I knew I was capable of winning, but you have to win one to know how it really feels. Now I’m confident the pieces of the puzzle will fall together. I don’t think I have to do things in a much different way, but I have to handle things differently.”
“I think I learnt a lot in 2019. Especially the difference between finishing on the podium and winning a title. With PK Carsport we did a lot together, we improved together and we all have one common goal: raise the biggest trophy at the end of the season and fly to the NASCAR Hall Of Fame.” the fired up Leuven-native told ‘EuroNASCAR.com’.
Without a doubt, crucial to a legitimate title-bid will be a good start to the season at the opening rounds in Valencia. With EuroNASCAR legend and PK Carsport team boss Anthony Kumpen as his new spotter, Longin will certainly go all-out to lay the foundations for the title at Circuit Ricardo Tormo on April 25-26.
