NASCAR-Rennen in Brands Hatch: Ellen Lohr zurück auf der Insel

NASCAR-Rennen in Brands Hatch: Ellen Lohr zurück auf der Insel

01.06.2019: Wiedersehen nach 31 Jahren: Ellen Lohr mit der NASCAR Whelen Euro Series in Brands Hatch. • Dritter Lauf der EuroNASCAR in England gilt als Saisonhöhepunkt der Serie


Wiedersehen nach 31 Jahren: Ellen Lohr mit der NASCAR Whelen Euro Series in Brands Hatch.



•    Dritter Lauf der EuroNASCAR in England gilt als Saisonhöhepunkt der Serie


•    Ellen Lohr zum ersten Mal nach über 30 Jahren wieder als Fahrerin auf der Strecke




Das American SpeedFest ist das Highlight der europäischen NASCAR-Serie. Am kommenden Wochenende werden wieder 50.000 enthusiastische Motorsportfans auf dem legendären Kurs in Brands Hatch erwartet.



Die Strecke in der Nähe von London, die bereits zum siebten Mal von der EuroNASCAR besucht wird, ist für Ellen Lohr kein Neuland, aber der letzt Besuch ist schon etwas her: "Ich bin hier vergangenes Mal im Jahr 1988 im Formel-Ford unterwegs gewesen." Jetzt kehrt sie im V8-Boliden von dexwet-df1 racing auf den 1,9 Kilometer langen Indy-Kurs zurück.



"Das Formel-Ford-Festival hatte damals 300 Starter", erinnert sich die Wahl-Monegassin. "Alle Newcomer mussten dort starten, wenn sie sich einen Namen im internationalen Motorsport machen wollten." Seitdem hat sich die Indy-Variante, das kürzere Layout der GP-Strecke, nicht verändert.


An der Infrastruktur wurde aber reichlich geschraubt. Lohr berichtet: "Als ich das letzte Mal hier war, gab es nur Holztribünen." Auf die leidenschaftlichen Motorsportfans freut sich die dexwet-df1-Fahrerin besonders: "Allgemein liebe ich den Motorsport in Großbritannien.



Die Fans wissen genau, was auf der Strecke passiert und sind mit viel Enthusiasmus dabei."
Von dem Kurs im Südosten Londons ist die erfahrene Rennfahrerin begeistert: "Ich mag die großen Rasenflächen rund um den Kurs. Im Nassen ist es hier zwar nicht ganz nett, weil es sehr glatt wird, aber das gibt den englischen Rennstrecken einen ganz besonderes Flair."


An diesem Wochenende gehen in der ELITE-1-Kategorie der EuroNASCAR wieder rund 30 Autos an den Start. Die große Vielfalt bringt Abwechslung: Es sind rund 20 verschiedene Nationen im Starterfeld vertreten. In der Gesamtwertung hat aktuell der amtierende Champion und Israeli Alon Day die Nase vorne.



Beim NASCAR GP von Italien stieg auch Ellen Lohr ganz nach oben auf das Podium. Sie siegte erstmals in der Challenger Trophy und holte damit auch wichtige Punkte für die Gesamtwertung. "Das war wichtig, weil ich wegen des Crashs beim Saisonauftakt in Valencia abgeschlagen war", sagt sie.


Einfach wird es am Wochenende in England aber nicht, denn der malerische Kurs stellt die Fahrer aufgrund seiner technischen Charakteristik vor großen Herausforderungen. Die schnelle Strecke ist nur 1,9 Kilometer lang und kann deshalb in rund 50 Sekunden umrundet werden. Das bedeutet auch, dass es im Rennen mit den zahlreichen Autos zu viel Verkehr und Überrundungen kommen wird.


"In der EuroNASCAR gab es hier in der Vergangenheit sowohl spannende als auch dramatische Szenen", erinnert sich Lohr. "Ich rechne mit einem turbulenten Lauf – insbesondere in der Startphase." Gleich zwei Rennen wird die Rennfahrerin aus Deutschland an diesem Wochenende bestreiten – eins am Samstag und eins am Sonntag.



In der ELITE-2-Division, der zweiten EuroNASCAR-Liga, werden ebenfalls zwei Läufe ausgetragen. Neben den vier Rennen erwartet die Zuschauer ein offenes Fahrerlager, das in der europäischen Motorsport-Welt als besonders fanfreundlich bezeichnet wird.





Das Rennwochenende der NASCAR Whelen Euro Series in Brands Hatch ist das dritte von sieben in der Saison 2019.



In beiden Meisterschaften werden jeweils die Läufe fünf und sechs ausgetragen. Seitdem NASCAR die Serie seit der Saison 2012 offiziell unterstützt, hat sich das American SpeedFest in Brands Hatch zum größten und populärsten EuroNASCAR-Event entwickelt. Auch an diesem Wochenende steht die gesamte Veranstaltung unter amerikanischem Motto.
