The series is the official FIA World Championship for GT cars. In spite of the misleading name the only cars permitted are those from the production-based GT3 category, such as the Audi R8 LMS ultra. On the agenda at every race weekend are two one-hour races. Audi is represented this season by the Belgian customer team WRT, which fields a pair of Audi R8 LMS ultra for Oliver Jarvis (GB), Stéphane Ortelli (MC), Frank Stippler (D) and Laurens Vanthoor (B). Ortelli/Vanthoor won both races at the season opener at Nogaro (F). After finishing third at Portimão (P) Stippler/Jarvis claimed another podium position for Audi.
