After Belgium, and with the support of the Greek National Tourism Organisation, Laskaratos will compete in Spain (August 25-29), Italy (October 6-11) and in Portugal (October 28-November 1).

General Secretary of the Greek National Tourism Organisation (EOT), Dimitris Fraggakis stated that “motor sports gathers millions of spectators and viewers every year around the world. So we have a unique opportunity, with the first Greek driver racing in such a high level race and of course we did not leave it untapped. Greece and Greek tourism are promoted all over the world in a very original but I believe extremely efficient way. I want to thank Andreas Laskaratos who willingly accepted the proposal of EOT and wish him the best of luck in the games ahead. We will be by his side.”

On his part, Laskaratos stated that he is “very proud and excited for the support of EOT and Greece. It is an emerging space in our country but with very good bases abroad and I believe that it will contribute substantially to the promotion of Greece abroad, as there is a huge promotion every year through the games.”
