The new team arrives in NASCAR Whelen Euro Series
Double V Racing is born from the will of the driver Pierluigi Veronesi and the entrepreneur Francesco Vignali to start an Academy path for drivers and engineers.
Veronesi returns to the scene with fireworks! the driver from Persiceto has a long experience in motorsport behind him. This will be the third time in the NASCAR Wheelen Euro Series European Championship and this time with his own team: Double V Racing.
His partner in business is Francesco Vignali is the CEO at Testing srl, laboratory specialized in automotive sector and founder. The two of them set up Double V Racing as a team dedicated to 360-degree motorsport.
Double V Racing is based in Medolla, Modena, in the very heart of the “Motor Valley”. The aim of the team is to nurturing young talents with a coach and a prestigious technical partner and to guarantee a presence in national and international contexts, reaching the coveted NASCAR world.
For Veronesi the NASCAR commitment is confirmed aboard the Ford Mustang number 27, the same that saw him hit the TOP 10 in 2019 in Elite 2 out of over forty drivers, but today with Double V Racing livery.
Francesco Sini’s Solaris Motorsport is the technical partner that will support the new born team throughout the 2021 season, giving them technical assistance during and after the race.
For Pierluigi returning to NASCAR is not only the natural continuation of a sports career, but also the way to continue a social project that he strongly desired. SBOMBER is ready to go back to giving prominence throughout Europe to the Bimbo Tu association, which since 2007 has been helping and supporting the families of children hospitalized in the pediatric neurosurgery wards of the Bellaria Hospital. Pier-Sbomber-Luigi will be helped this time from the entire Double V Racing team that embraced the initiative, because visibility and skills must be used to convey the right messages.
Double V Racing is the sixth Italian team to enter the fantastic European NASCAR stage in this 2021; seven appointments with double races on the most beautiful and famous circuits in Europe.
The Nascar championship will start from Valencia on 15 and 16 May, then move on to Most, Brands Hatch, Hockenheimring, Rijeka, Zolder and for the European finals the Italian stage in the prestigious Vallelunga.
Veronesi: I am really excited to embark on this path, where I am engaged both as a driver and team manager. Honored to field all my professionalism acquired over time, both in terms of test rider and driver. Working with Francesco is really motivating and I am sure that we will take away great satisfaction. Can’t wait to be in Valencia.
Vignali: For some time we have wanted to bring Testing know-how “in the field”, given our experience in the automotive sector and beyond. We have chosen to do it with Pier both for his pedigree as a pilot and test driver, which speaks for himself, as well as for his commitment to social issues that our company has always carried out with local realities.
The shared objective of Double V Racing has a wider scope than the single championship, in fact it was created to transmit skills through an Academy path of pilots and engineers.
Race today with an eye to tomorrow, and possibly win in doing so.
