GT3: FIFTH VICTORY AT THE NÜRBURGRING
STRONG TEAM PERFORMANCE
After 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2017, the Audi R8 LMS again won the world’s biggest car race. The more than 25 kilometre long Nürburgring with its notorious Nordschleife took its toll once more: plenty of accidents, damage and retirements shaped the action-packed race. By contrast, the new evolution of the Audi R8 LMS was running perfectly, just like the two other products of Audi Sport customer racing’s offering – the Audi RS 3 LMS and the Audi R8 LMS GT4. Audi Sport Team Phoenix won the race after a thrilling battle with last year’s winners, Porsche. Frank Stippler had been part of the winning team as early as in 2012, whereas Pierre Kaffer and the two Belgians, Dries Vanthoor and Frédéric Vervisch, decided the iconic race in the Eifel in their favour for the first time. Their performances, just like the work of the team, remained impeccable, whereas last year’s winners were handed a penalty. With Audi Sport Team Car Collection in fourth and Team Phoenix Racing in eighth position, two other Audi R8 LMS finished in the top ten.
