The second weekend of the 2019 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series sees the action move to the Autodromo di Franciacorta Daniel Bonara in Brescia, Italy and the Racing Engineering team will be looking to build on the success they had at the opening round in Valencia, Spain. The debut of the Spanish team in the EuroNASCAR series was a tremendous success with their very experienced Spanish driver Ander Vilariño, who has won the Series three times, taking the victory in both of the Elite 1 races to see him sitting at the top of the Elite 1 Drivers Championship and give the team the best possible start to the season.
Their other Elite 1 driver, the Frenchman Romain Iannetta was out of luck when, in Saturday’s race, he was given a drive-through penalty for exceeding the track limits when he had to leave the track to avoid contact with another car which dropped him to the back of the field but an aggressive drive on Sunday saw him take a very competitive seventh.
The team’s Elite 2 driver, Myatt Snider, started Saturday’s race from pole position but contact with another car at the end of the race saw him finish at the back of the field. A strong race on Sunday saw the young American finish sixth in a very close race.
