Fifth victory for Audi R8 LMS in DMV GTC

Audi R8 LMS GT4

Sights set on Macau Grand Prix: The Audi R8 LMS GT4 prevailed against its rivals in the first race of the Greater Bay Area GT Cup on the Guangdong circuit. The Grid Motorsport team had come up with the best setup in difficult conditions on a wet track so that race driver Alex Au from Hong Kong scored a clear victory with a 4.2-second advantage. The race weekend in the south eastern Chinese coastal province Guangdong was the first of two events of qualifying for the finale that will be held at the prestigious Macau Grand Prix in November.

Three victories in Austria: Jean-Luc Weidt in an Audi R8 LMS GT4 achieved the maximum result on the third race weekend of the DMV GTC at the Red Bull Ring. The up-and-coming driver from Memmingen (Germany) won Class 5 in both sprint races as well as in the Dunlop 60 endurance race.

Second place in Spain: In round two of the Spanish Campeonato de España Resistencia racing series, the Willi Motorsport customer team claimed second place. On the Motorland Aragon circuit in the northeast of Spain, David Serban in an Audi R8 LMS GT4 finished the C3 class runner-up. With that, the Romanian continued his string of podium finishes after having scored a second place and a victory at the season opener. 

Audi RS 3 LMS (TCR)

Two trophies for BF Motorsport: Italy continues to be a positive place for the Audi RS 3 LMS. Audi’s touring car is a winner again this year not only in the genuine TCR series for sprint and endurance events but also in club racing. On the third weekend of the Coppa Italia Turismo at Imola, Jacopo Guidetti won the first race in an Audi RS 3 LMS. His teammate, Edoardo Barbolini, finished the second sprint runner-up with only a 0.581-second deficit.
