SpeedHouse announced that Matthias Hauer and Alain Mosqueron are joining the team for 2023, with Hauer set to participate in EuroNASCAR 2 while Mosqueron will be returning to the EuroNASCAR Club Challenge division.
German veteran driver Matthias Hauer and former two-time Club Challenge champion Alain Mosqueron is contesting the 2023 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series with Lucas Lasserre’s SpeedHouse, as announced by the French team on 10 April 2023.
Hauer, who is a mainstay in the EuroNASCAR 2 division for the past four years, will continue to take part in EuroNASCAR’s junior division as he aims to fight for wins in the Legend Trophy sub-classifications.
“SpeedHouse is such an incredible team and for me it’s not just about the technical aspects or the driving, it’s about the team spirit,” said Hauer, who works as a lawyer in his hometown Bad Neuheim during the weekdays.
“It’s also about fairness, transparent work processes and the love for motorsports. We are like a family at SpeedHouse and that’s what makes the team so special.”
Hauer, who made his EuroNASCAR debut in 2018 as a driver for CAAL Racing in the EuroNASCAR PRO division, switched to EN2 when he returned to the series in 2020 for his first drive with SpeedHouse at Zolder.
He returned as a one-off contender in 2021 before he set up a more sustained campaign in 2022. Sharing the No. 40 Ford Mustang alongside Néo Lambert, Hauer finished in the top-20 three times on his way to finish 27th in the standings.
Hauer is more motivated than ever for the upcoming season as it is set to feature the return of NASCAR GP Germany, which is scheduled to be hosted at Motorsport Arena Oschersleben for the first time.
“With the NASCAR GP Germany back on the schedule, I’m excited and motivated to compete in my home country again,” said Hauer on the upcoming round at Oschersleben to euronascar.com.
“I expect to see a lot of friends at Oschersleben and I’m looking forward to the hard, close but fair battles on the track. I know the layout and I’m confident that I can produce solid results there.”
For Alain Mosqueron, the announcement of his participation in the 2023 season is set to be the Frenchman’s homecoming year after a two-year hiatus from EuroNASCAR Club Challenge competition.
Mosqueron made his debut in 2019, where he succeeded to win the Club Challenge title on his debut year after a year-long battle with Giovanni Trione and Andreas Kuchelbacher.
He returned in 2020 to defend his title with DF1 Racing. Despite competition being heavily reduced due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mosqueron didn’t keep his guard down and managed to secure a back-to-back title after scoring two wins.
Now with a new team in SpeedHouse after DF1 quietly dissolved in 2022 following the passing of team principal Norbert Walchhofer, Mosqueron is ready to take on both new and returning talent in EuroNASCAR’s regularity-based division.
“After two long years away from NASCAR, I’m very excited to join the Speedhouse team and represent the organization in an exciting 2023 season,” said Mosqueron to euronascar.com.
“I have been following the development of SpeedHouse over the past few years and have seen how competitive the organization is in all three EuroNASCAR categories. I also like the friendly atmosphere, which is important to me in a race team. I’m very motivated to work hard and achieve great things together with SpeedHouse.”
