Best FIA WTCR weekend for Audi Sport at home round

“Everyone knows how challenging the Nordschleife is. Each of our four drivers showed his skills there, scored points and thus made our good team result possible,” said Chris Reinke, Head of Audi Sport customer racing. “In addition, our Finnish customer Antti Buri as a guest entrant contributed to our successful weekend by clinching second place on the grid in race two.” During the course of the event, the Audi Sport drivers managed to improve significantly from race to race. After Frédéric Vervisch claimed fifth position in the first sprint, his form curve clearly pointed upwards. In the second heat, he advanced to second place from fourth on the grid. In round three, the 32-year-old pro stormed forward right on the first kilometers from seventh to second place and maintained his position up until the finish. A year ago, he had stood on the podium at the Nürburgring for the first time and clinched two trophies as well. Now Vervisch with Comtoyou Team Audi Sport, just like leader of the standings Esteban Guerrieri, scored a total of 53 points – no other driver was more successful at the Nürburgring. With that, the Belgian moved up from eleventh to fifth place in the standings.
