Ercoli, Venturi claim their first win
Gianmarco Ercoli claimed his maiden NASCAR Whelen Euro Series ELITE 1 victory for Racers Motorsport in the NASCAR GP UK at the Brands Hatch Indy. The Italian driver put his Ford Mustang on the top spot after dominating race two from the light to flag. Ercoli fended off the attacks of the Marc Goossens’ Braxx Racing Chrevolet Camaro and of Alon Day, third on his CAAL Racing’s Toyota Camry. The Racer Motorsport’s driver also became the first ELITE 2 Champion to reach Victory Lane in Euro NASCAR’s top division. Ercoli edged Goossens by just 0.162 seconds and Day by 0.651 seconds.
In the ELITE 2 Division rookie driver Florian Venturi grabbed the first NASCAR win for himself and the Go Fas Racing team, earning the title of Prince of Brands Hatch.
