2022 EuroNASCAR season: Gil Linster back with CAAL Racing

Gil Linster will join CAAL Racing for the 2022 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series season. The Luxembourgish driver will be back with the Italian powerhouse and compete in the EuroNASCAR 2 Championship. The 28-year-old already raced for the Canneori family’s championship winning team from 2017 to 2018 and aims to become a regular top-5 contender next year.

After earning some precious experience in the United States in 2019 and 2020, Linster made his return to EuroNASCAR in 2021, scoring 1 top-5 and 3 top-10s. In his career, the NWES veteran made a total of 27 EuroNASCAR 2 starts and in 2018 he finished inside the top-10 eight times, closing the season fifth in points.

“I will focus entirely on the 2022 EuroNASCAR season and I have already signed the contract with CAAL Racing”, said Linster. “With CAAL Racing again we found a great deal for both sides. During the winter I will keep improving my Italian to be able to communicate with the team in a proper way. It’s all about beating the Hendriks Motorsport guys, who are incredibly fast, but CAAL Racing has what it takes to be successful. I want to be a regular inside the top-5 and become a title contender.”

CAAL Racing’s Team Manager Luca Canneori is happy about the deal with the 28-year-old from Frisange. He said: “We are very happy to welcome Gil back with us. At the end of our stint together he had established himself in the top-5 and we are looking forward to picking up our work together where we left. We want to climb a few more places together and have a lot of success in the 2022 EuroNASCAR 2 Championship season.”

The 2022 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series season will kick off on April 9-10 at the legendary Hockenheimring in Germany. The upcoming championship consists of six rounds across Europe and two thrilling special events: the All-Star Race at Vallelunga in Italy and the EuroNASCAR Winter Classics on ice. The championship finale will take place at Automotodrom Grobnik in Rijeka, Croatia, on October 29-30, 2022.
