Gil Linster joins Fueled by Verge.
Gil is a Verge supporter and a race car driver.
He currently races stock cars in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series.
Once we saw Gil’s post in our Facebook community group, it blew us all away.
Here was someone we’d never heard of before, racing stock cars, for NASCAR in Europe and had Verge logos on the car and the helmet.
Of course, when we saw that, the excitement took over.
Once we noticed and heard about Gil displaying Verge on his car for his final race of the season, we had to meet up with him at one of his races.
After we spent an entire weekend with Gil at Circuit Zolder, Belgium, it became increasingly clear that Gil is a true member of our VergeFam. Therefore, he’s taking the time to spread the word out there on the track. We were swayed by his passion and wanted him to sport the Verge brand for more than just this race.
After some good conversations, we had an agreement for Verge to partner up with Gil for the next upcoming season.
So i’m proud to say, welcome to the family!
Gil has recently finished 2 races in placings of 4th and 13th at circuit Zolder. It must be mentioned that in his second race, he experienced engine difficulties that hindered his performance.
He raced strong and recently finished his 2018 Season of the Elite 2 category in 5th place.
Mr. Linster will also be racing in the USA in his next season with the addition of NASCAR’s Whelen All-American Series. The lmv8 oval championship.
The Luxembourgish driver will race late model stock cars from the newly formed “The Garage Shop” team.
With Gil’s next season shaping up to be even bigger and even better, we will be keeping up with him through the Fueled by Verge initiative.
Lastly, Gil’s 44 race car will be reproduced 44 times — 44 times due to his race number.
His original race car (with Verge logo’s) is currently showcased at the International Motor Show in Luxembourg from December 14th through 16th, 2018. And is available for purchase. ( See picture below )
Last week, Gil was in the U.S. at the NASCAR Awards in the Hall of Fame.
Verge and Gil are both ready to tackle massadoption and spread its awareness and education through racing. Want to know more about Gil? Keep reading!
