With a one-two-three podium lockout in Wuhan, China, Audi Sport customer racing enjoyed its best race weekend so far in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup.
Strong in qualifying and the races 

The first of the three race went according to place for Audi: Jean-Karl Vernay claimed pole position with the Audi Sport Leopard Lukoil Team. From the start to the finish, nobody came close to the Frenchman who celebrated his third victory of the season in the Audi RS 3 LMS.

Shedden's first victory with Audi

His Audi Sport team mate Gordon Shedden shone in second qualifying around the street circuit to take pole position. However, he was an innocent victim in somebody else’s accident, which jeopardised him competing in the third race. The mechanics completed a steering rack change in quite literally the last minute. In a turbulent race with two safety car phases, Shedden also took a start-finish win. It was his first victory with Audi. Another Audi driver Frédéric Vervisch from Audi Sport Team Comtoyou followed behind.

Privateers strong again

The privateer Audi drivers also produced strong drives. The Frenchman Nathanaël Berthon fought from fifth in the second race with Comtoyou Racing to take third place. As a result, five of the six Audi drivers in the FIA WTCR have now won trophies. Denis Dupont from Audi Sport Team Comtoyou completed the first ever one-two-three result for the brand in this race series.
