Guillaume Dumarey back in NWES with PK Carport, aims at EuroNASCAR 2 title

A welcome return will highlight the the 2020 EuroNASCAR 2 season: Guillaume Dumarey will be back behind the wheel of the #24 PK Carsport Chevrolet Camaro. After a one-year hiatus, the Belgian is poised to pick up where he left and battle for the EuroNASCAR 2 (EN2) title.

After finishing second in points in 2017 with PK Carsport, Dumarey ran a partial schedule in 2018 with the Belgian team to welcome his newborn daughter in the Dumarey family but managed to obtain his maiden NASCAR win.

“You don’t drive for PK Carsport to fill the pack,” said Dumarey. “The team expects you to run at the front of the field. And that is exactly what I will try to do. As always in EuroNASCAR, the competition will be there and very hard and there is another challenge for me as I don’t know two tracks on the schedule: Most and Vallelunga.”

Dumarey’s record in his 20 starts is outstanding: he won twice, scored eight podium finishes and grabbed two pole positions. His first win came at Franciacorta in 2018 and he grabbed the other one a few months later at Circuit Zolder in front of his home crowd. By winning the EN2 title, Guillaume Dumarey would join his brother Maxime, who accomplished the feat in 2014, and further add to the family record. The two Belgians already are the only brothers to both win a NWES race in the championship’s history.

“I’m very excited to be back,” said the 33-year-old Gent-native. “I drove in different kinds of championships in my career and it is hard to beat the experience you get in EuroNASCAR. The V8 engines, the pure and fair racing as well as the large number of fans are an unbeatable combination. I will need some mileage to get back to speed for sure, but there is still time before the season kicks off at Valencia in April, so I still have some weeks to prepare myself.”

Dumarey will make his EuroNASCAR comeback on April 25-26 at Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain. The Belgian took part in four races at the 4.005 kilometer long track, earning two top-5 finishes.
