The second round of the 2019 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series took place yesterday in Italy. Racing Engineering’s Matt Snider claimed an excellent second place, with great performances by the drivers.
The Racing Engineering team bids “ADIO” to Italy with a magnificent ending in the Elite 2 race: second place for the driver Myatt Snider, sixth for Ander Vilariño, ninth for Romain, and 23rd for Eric Clement. This weekend Badtoro joined the team at the Autodromo Di Franciacorta in Brescia.
24 laps of a race that ended up being an amazing finish for Myatt who started at fifth place on the grid. Italy and Spain became rivals when Myatt lost his place to the Italian, Ghirelli. Not able to block on the first curve, he fell to 6th place, but seven laps from the finish he started to change the scene, managing to get past Longin and coming up on Ghirelli. Second place has a name: Myatt Snider!
Badtoro of the month: Ander Vilariño
Saturday was not a good race for Ander Vilariño since he had to retire with his damaged car. Ander started from tenth place on the grid and Romain from 21st.
Sunday the view changed at the Brescia racetrack and on lap seven Ander managed to get ahead to ninth place. But he hadn’t defeated everyone and, like a good “bad friend”, on lap eleven Ander overtook Ferrar to gain eighth place. Finally, he got to 6th position with ten laps to the finish.
Romain Lannetta, who started in 21st position, achieved a very good place given how he started and ended the race with his name in the 9th place spot on Sunday, May 12, 2019.
Congratulations to the whole Racing Engineering team.
