The fourth edition of the NASCAR Show Most at the Autodrom Most was a huge success. Despite Sunday’s inclement weather 31,200 fans visited the track over the weekend to enjoy four exciting NASCAR Whelen Euro Series races, support series and a great paddock show of an unique NASCAR event. So many passionate Czech fans flooded the grandstands and green hills and therefore it’s no surprise that they took up most of the top-5 highlights of the weekend at Autodrom Most.
Fifth place: Parade to Most
Every team sent one car to the city center of Most to ignite the spark of the locals to visit the NASCAR Show Most with its rich and colorful program on and off track. Plenty of NWES drivers were at the event to sign autographs and take photos with their fans. The youngest were even allowed to climb into one of the V8 cars with 400 hp and no electronic aids. The engines kept silent but the memories remained for the young racing fans who enjoyed the parade, which was highlighted by a ride on the public roads of Most in real racing cars.
Fourth place: Increase of viewers on live streaming
The numbers don’t lie, EuroNASCAR’s growth is ongoing: 85,200 views on the EuroNASCAR Youtube channel showed the high interest in the NASCAR GP Czech Republic even from racing fans who were not able to travel to Autodrom Most. An increase of 27 percent compared to 2022 underlined the development of the best touring car series in Europe. 630,200 minutes watched and an increase of 7.2 percent of live streaming interactions made the broadcast of the race weekend a true success.
Third place: History has been written
At the podium ceremony in the middle of a fantastic fan zone in the paddock, Paul Jouffreau gained tons of new fans by setting two fantastic records. At the age of 19 years, the Frenchman became the youngest EuroNASCAR PRO race winner in NWES history and the first driver to score victories in both divisions in one season. When Jouffreau lifted his trophy to the sky, the fans shared this magnificent moment with the youngster in Victory Lane.
