07 Dec NASCAR EURO WHELEN: PK Carsport & Heinz Hasselt champion!!!
PK Carsport has become champion in the Nascar euro Whelen series!
Last winter Alon Day (29) made the switch to PK Carsport, the team of his former rival Anthony Kumpen. PK Carsport is the racing team that works hand in hand with Heinz Performance Hasselt, also led by Anthony.
The cooperation paid off: the Israeli has become champion for the third time in his career. Moreover, he is record holder in the number of Euro Whelen victories. In Valencia he took a victory on Saturday and Sunday. The final race was unfortunately lost due to a difficult restart. Thanks to the large lead in the standings, a fourth place was enough to win the championship.
Alon Day reacted afterwards: “2020 was such a tough year, I left everything in Israel behind to go and live in Belgium near the PK Carsport workshops in Hasselt. Living alone during the lockdown was physically and mentally tough. But the sacrifice gave me the championship and now, after one of the toughest weekends of my life, I can finally go home”.
Stienes Longin, Alon’s teammate had a weekend of bad luck and didn’t make it to the podium. The same was true for Marc Goossens. Italian Vittorio Ghirelli is champion of class 2. Dylan Derdaele fought in the front ranks, but fell back every time during an incident-prone weekend.
