Alex will head to Brands Hatch this weekend for rounds five and six of this year's NASCAR Whelen Euro Series.
The only home round for Alex, Brands Hatch was the circuit he kicked off his 2018 season with Braxx racing, and he will be aiming to repeat last year’s performance and put behind the disappointment of the last round in Franciacorta.
Last year, Alex left Brands Hatch with two podium finishes and, in his first race with the Braxx team, he put his #90 Ford Mustang at the top of the time sheet in qualifying.
“Brands Hatch was an interesting weekend last year. It was my first race weekend with Braxx and the first time I had met the team! Then I had to learn the car, which was completely different to the MRT car I contested the first two rounds in. This year, I know the car, the team and the circuit, so I will be trying my best to repeat last year’s success and again give the British fans something to cheer for,” commented Alex.
Brands Hatch is the only circuit on the calendar that Alex has raced at prior to NASCAR. With good track knowledge the main focus will be to work on the car set-up to get the most out of the #90 AST UK/EVP Camaro. It is important to get a good qualifying position as overtaking will be challenging with over 30 stock cars on the tight 1.208 mile circuit.
The race weekend kicks off on Friday with free practice, where the name of the game is to secure a good position for Saturday’s qualifying by setting a fast time in the practice sessions, which determines the starting order.
The American SpeedFest is the biggest round in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series and all the race fans lucky enough to be at the circuit will experience the best and most pure racing the circuit offers.
