The Club Motorsport plans to field a full-time Chevrolet in the 2022 NWES season – Fabrizio Armetta will compete in EuroNASCAR PRO 

The NASCAR Whelen Euro Series (NWES) has added another full-time team to the list, with The Club Motorsport planning its return to all NWES events for the 2022 season after several years as a part-time entry. Team boss Fabrizio Armetta will pilot the #55 Chevrolet Camaro in the EuroNASCAR PRO championship. 

Armetta is a true NWES veteran and made his debut in the EuroNASCAR PRO category back in 2013. In 2014, he finished eighth overall to secure the Challenger Trophy win. In the eternal Challenger Trophy winners’ list, he is second behind Henri Tuomaala (16 wins) with 13 victories. The Italian collected four top-5 and ten top-10 results in 37 races.

Armetta contested his first race on the legendary road course at Le Mans in France. Since then he has gained important experience at the wheel of the V8 bolides, which is why he has decided to get back behind the wheel himself. With a new crew of mechanics, the Italian racing team wants to attack in the 2022 season and achieve solid results. 

Armetta has set himself the goal of developing the car further and integrating himself into the technical team. It’s also not out of the question that the 49-year-old will get further support. The Roman lets it be known that he is in talks with “experienced drivers” for the cockpit for the EuroNASCAR 2 category. It is not known which drivers are on The Club Motorsport’s list. 

The team plans to make a long-term commitment to the NWES and expand in the future. Already, Armetta is talking about the goal of expanding to a two-car team as soon as possible. However, there is no word yet on when the team will field a second V8 car. One thing is certain: The Club Motorsport will be a further asset to the packed grid for the 2022 NWES season, which kicks off at Hockenheim on April 9 and 10, 2022.
