TOP TEN RESULTS IN CALIFORNIA
PODIUM FINISH BARELY MISSED
With entries by eight automotive manufacturers, the third season of the Intercontinental GT Challenge (IGTC) is more competitive than ever before. In the second of five rounds in the world’s most prestigious GT3 racing series, the #10 Audi R8 LMS from Audi Sport Team WRT with the driver trio Christopher Haase, Dries Vanthoor and Frédéric Vervisch finished in fourth position. The gap between them and the winners after eight hours was merely 58 seconds, and a podium finish just barely missed.
The high-caliber field fought close battles across the entire race distance – six of the eight marques finished in the top ten. Remarkably for an endurance race there was not a single yellow period during the eight hours.
“A FIERCELY FOUGHT RACING SERIES”
“Today we received confirmation of what a fiercely fought racing series the Intercontinental GT Challenge has become,” said Chris Reinke, Head of Audi Sport customer racing. “Across the full race distance the entire field fought close battles. That leaves no room for mistakes. Unfortunately, after two victories in 2017 and 2018 here at Laguna Seca, we’re going home without a trophy this time. Small things made the difference today. I’d like to thank our six drivers and the two teams. They all did a good job. Now, we’re looking ahead and forward to the two upcoming 24-hour races at the Nürburgring and at Spa.”
