While many of the top teams faced tough setbacks at Mount Panorama, several customers in the Audi R8 LMS mastered Australia’s largest endurance race without any issues. After a faultless drive, the two New Zealanders Daniel Gaunt and Matt Haliday, together with the Australian Ash Samadi, climbed the podium of the Pro-Am ranking for mixed driver line-ups.
As the best Audi team at the finish, they took second place in the class and came an overall seventh. Australians Marc Cini/Dean Fiore/Lee Holdsworth made it to the chequered flag in third position in the class and ninth overall. Their Audi R8 LMS also ran perfectly. Simon Evans/James Koundouris/Theo Koundrouris/Marcus Marshall reached eleventh place with the Supabarn team in another Audi R8 LMS.
