EuroNASCAR and Circuit Ricardo Tormo extend contract through 2029

EuroNASCAR Management Group confirmed another fundamental long-term partnership for the coming years. The NASCAR Whelen Euro Series, the official European NASCAR championship, and the Circuit Ricardo Tormo extended their contract through the 2029 season, securing five more years of Pure Racing at Valencia’s 4.005-kilometre venue.

The stunning Spanish arena has been part of the EuroNASCAR calendar since 2012 and has hosted a total of twelve Valencia NASCAR Fests. Nine times the Circuit Ricardo Tormo circuit has kicked off the championship with the NASCAR GP Spain and once hosted the unique Super Finals Week with eight races in three days to close the 2020 season.

“Circuit Ricardo Tormo is definitely one of the jewels of the EuroNASCAR Calendar, offering competitors and fans one of the best racing experiences you can find in Europe: track layout is fantastic, fans can see everything from the grandstands, the circuit staff is very professional and welcoming,” said NWES President CEO Jerome Galpin. “If you add the great atmosphere of the Valencia riviera and the sunny weather, we have everything to continue to grow the Valencia NASCAR Fest into one of the best racing events in Europe. So it’s truly a pleasure and an honor for us to announce this 5-year partnership extension.”

“The Valencia NASCAR Fest is one of the most important events of the Circuit’s annual calendar. That open atmosphere is one of the keys to success: NASCAR fans have the opportunity to get close to the cars and meet the drivers on the starting grid in person, that is something unique and highly valued by our public,” said Nicolás Collado Circuit Ricardo Tormo General Manager.

Since 2012, Valencia has been one of the most visited tracks on the schedule, guaranteeing spectacular side-by-side racing, thrilling competitions and unpredictable finishes, with a unique layout which offers fans one of the best opportunities to see all the action from the grandstands. That’s why the NASCAR Valencia Fest has become one of the most popular events at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo since its inception in 2012. The most recent edition in 2024 featured four spectacular NWES races and a lively American-themed festival for the whole family in the open paddock. Over 19,000 fans attended the 2024 NASCAR Valencia Fest.

Not only did fans get to see the Pure Racing of EuroNASCAR during the four races, but they also got to meet their heroes during the unique grid walks and open garages. The spirit of the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series is to bring the race fans as close to the cars and drivers as possible and the family fun factor is also an important part of the series concept. There are plenty of attractions for children and their families to enjoy, including a large podium in the middle of the fan zone where everyone can come together to celebrate the winners.

With Valencia’s beautiful beaches, architecture and city center close to the circuit, the Circuit Ricardo Tormo circuit is the perfect place for European racing fans to combine a holiday with an amazing weekend of Pure Racing. The NASCAR Whelen Euro Series also offers the opportunity to watch the Valencia races live and for free on its YouTube channel and on several TV networks around the world.
