Representing the best bridge for European drivers towards NASCAR in the US, NASCAR Whelen Euro Series applies a great number of NASCAR features, such as a very strict technical inspection procedures or radio communications between Race Controls’ spotters and drivers. Just like in the US, the safety-car will be deployed multiple times and double-file restarts will be very spectacular. The race cars are inspired by American NASCAR models, too, but specially adapted for European tracks. They use a four-speed manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive and a V8 Chevrolet engine producing an output of up to 450 hp.
