By 20. November 2020.Nekategorizirano

During this year’s Nascar GP of Croatia we have all been waiting for the official confirmation that this attractive race is coming back to Croatia and Grobnik race track.

All the effort we put in organization of this year’s event proved that we are already now ready for races of this level.

And already today, only 5 days after the end of this year’s race the official confirmation from Promoter arrived. NASCAR is coming back to Grobnik in 2021!

We’re very happy with this long term partnership with the Grobnik circuit. I think we found a fantastic location for a NASCAR GP. It’s by the sea, in a wonderful area like the Croatian Riviera, the track layout is very nice and pleased all the drivers last weekend. At Automotodrom Grobnik we found some very motivated, dedicated partners. There’s great appeal for NASCAR racing in the area and everyone has cooperated splendidly to organize the first ever NASCAR event there. The southeastern part of Europe is a new area to explore and we definitely found a new home in Croatia for EuroNASCAR. We’ll also work with the local Federations and all the partners involved to develop drivers coming from the region, there are many talents we just need to discover. This is a very positive step for the future!”
said NWES President CEO Jerome Galpin

For Automotodrom Grobnik and me personally, this is perhaps the most important moment for our track  since reconstruction of the track and laying the new asphalt in 2018. The fact we got Nascar Euro series  for the next three years  is a proof that the investments in and around the track, and of course the effort of the people who were involved in organizing such an event in just three weeks, were recognized by promoter. New era for our race track is coming for sure. We believe that not only from the point of view of motor sports but also tourism  this event will make significant contribution to the development of Croatian auto sport and tourist content and offer. We are still under impression of this race and we truly believe as Automotodrom Grobnik , of course with the exceptional support of the Croatian auto and karting federation (HAKS) and it’s president  Mr. Davorin Štetner, that we will organize even better race and that more Croatian drivers will join this competition. As You may know we and HAKS have been working in last Year more closely on trainings for domestic drivers and we believe that some of them could be profiled through the race of this rank. The Year 2021 will be quite challenging and a real spectacle is waiting for all of us in September.„
concluded Board Member of Automotodrom Grobnik Mr. Robert Žiković
