"We are very proud to work with such amazing tracks partners and can’t thank them enough for their efforts !!!" said NWES President / CEO Jerome Galpin "This calendar is a great mix of mythic tracks like Valencia, Brands Hatch and Zolder and challenging ovals like Raceway Venray and Tours Speedway.

Three weeks later, the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series will go to the Netherlands first oval race of the season at Raceway Venray, taking place during Pentecost Sunday and Monday "bank holiday" on May 14-16 in the contest of the second edition of the Autospeedway American Style.
