The Frankfurt-based racing team Bremotion has announced that they will be entering the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series in 2023, fielding the No. 99 Chevrolet Camaro with support from Hendriks Motorsport.

A new team will be entering the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series in 2023 after German tuner and racing team Bremotion announced their entry to the EuroNASCAR championship on 29 December.

Bremotion, the Frankfurt-based firm who had prior experience in series’ such as ADAC GT4 and DTM Trophy, are planning to enter the No. 99 Chevrolet Camaro for their debut season in the sport. Bremotion’s entry will be supported by Hendriks Motorsport, who has agreed to help the debuting team to field their car for next year’s championship. 

“I am very happy about the cooperation and thank Toine Hezemans and Roy Hendriks for their trust. With this alliance, we have the strongest partners on our side to be competitive from the start,” said Bremotion’s owner and Managing Director Patrick Brenndörfer.

Bremotion’s partnership deal meant that Hendriks, the reigning four-time Teams Champion, will be fielding a satellite team for the first time since 2021 when Hendriks helped Team Bleekemolen to field their No. 69 Ford Mustang, a partnership that led to the Bleekemolen team’s first podium success in the sport.

Hendriks had also previously supported Belgium Driver Academy in 2018, a partnership that was formed at the last minute due to sudden dissolution of Renauer Motorsport’s entry and its subsequent purchase by Maxim Pampel to keep the entry afloat.

“We are delighted to be working with Patrick Brenndörfer and Bremotion on this great project,” said Hendriks’ team owner Roy Hendriks. “We will build the new car with all the experience and expertise we have made in the series.”

Bremotion has also signed a partnership deal with Team Hezeberg, ensuring that the team will have a connection to the United States competition.

“Patrick Brenndörfer has already proven several times that he is very professional in racing and I’m sure that his team Bremotion will be successful in EuroNASCAR right from the start,” said Team Hezeberg’s co-owner Toine Hezemans. “We don’t see ourselves as competitors, but as a joint team.”

The team is yet to announce a driver to drive the No. 99 Camaro for next year, although Tobias Dauenhauer’s name has been brought up by as a candidate for the vacant seat.

Dauenhauer had been left without a ride after funding issues caused by the cancellation of the 2022 NASCAR GP Germany forced him to not compete in the 2022 season following his participation in the opening round at Valencia.

Given his prior success in the sport and his connection with Hendriks, Dauenhauer will be the perfect candidate to spearhead Bremotion for their debut season should he become the one to receive the contract to drive the No. 99 Camaro in 2023.
