Driver changes

  • Ander Vilariño is scheduled to compete full-time with DF1 Racing this year.

  • On 26 March 2021, Marko Stipp Motorsport announced that Evgeny Sokolovsky will be driving the team's No. 48 car on both classes this year, bringing in sponsorship from Gulf Grandprix Originals.

  • On 31 March 2021, it was announced that RDV Competition driver and three-time series runner-up Frédéric Gabillon will be returning to Euro Series for a possible final season after he and RDV Competition withdrew from the 2020 season due to the effects of COVID-19 pandemic.[3] His teammate Ulysse Delsaux, who also withdrew from the 2020 season due to the effects of the pandemic, was later reported on the following day to be planning to make his return to the series in 2021.[4]

Calendar changes

  • On 3 November 2020, it was announced that American SpeedFest, NASCAR Whelen Euro Series' round at Brands Hatch, will return to the calendar this year after the round was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The SpeedFest is scheduled to be held on 3–4 July, coinciding with the Independence Day weekend.[23]
  • NASCAR GP Spain at Circuit Ricardo Tormo will return to its original spot as the first round of the season. Last year, the round hosted the fourth and fifth rounds of the season as part of the one-off Valencia Super Speedweek event due to the schedule changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • NASCAR GP Italy at Autodromo di Vallelunga returned to its previous spot in the calendar as the second round of the season. It was initially scheduled to become the fifth round of the 2020 season, but the pandemic schedule changes meant that it hosted the season opening round instead.
  • NASCAR GP Croatia at Automotodrom Grobnik, which was added into the calendar as a last-minute replacement for NASCAR GP Czech Republic last year, becomes a permanent addition to the calendar for 2021. It is scheduled to host the sixth round of the season.
  • The NASCAR GP Czech Republic at Automotodrom Most and NASCAR GP Germany at Hockenheimring all returned to the schedule after their rounds were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is scheduled to host the third and fifth round of the season respectively.
  • NASCAR GP Netherlands at Raceway Venray, whose round last year was cancelled due to the pandemic, will not return despite the track having a contract to host a NASCAR Whelen Euro Series round until 2022.[24]
  • NASCAR GP Belgium at Zolder will host the season ending round once again, with the round as Zolder acting as the sole double-points Playoff round of the season.

Schedule changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic

  • On 22 February 2021, it was announced that NASCAR GP Spain at Circuit Ricardo Tormo will be postponed to the date initially given to NASCAR GP Italy due to the ongoing COVID restrictions in Europe while NASCAR GP Italy will be postponed to fall as the new final round of the season on a currently unannounced date. The remaining five rounds of the season will move one spot ahead as a result.[25]

Rule changes

  • On 22 January 2021, it was announced that Hoosier Racing Tire will become the exclusive tyre supplier of the series on a seven-year contract, replacing General Tire as the tyre supplier after Hoosier and General Tire's parent company Continental AG extended their tyre supply contract with the series until 2027.[26]
  • On 25 March 2021, it was announced that teams will have an option to use sequential gearboxes starting from this year, making Euro Series the first NASCAR series to introduce sequential gearboxes.[27]
