GT3: AUDI REDUCES GAP
CHRISTOPHER HAASE CLOSER TO THE TOP SPOT
Fourth position in the overall classification and third in the group of teams entered in the Intercontinental GT Challenge: the best Audi R8 LMS did well in a field of 72 entrants and eleven manufacturers – in spite of several setbacks. In qualifying, Christopher Haase/Frédéric Vervisch/Markus Winkelhock had only achieved 22nd place. They went on to lead the race some of the time and following two drive-through penalties Audi Sport Team Saintéloc ultimately took fourth position. Christopher Haase and his teammates were awarded 15 points for it. As a result, the Audi Sport driver nearly cut his deficit in the standings in half, from 23 to twelve points, and in fourth place is now sitting in a promising position.
APPEARANCE BY THE AUDI R8 LMS GT2
In conjunction with the 24-hour race, the new Audi R8 LMS GT2 made an appearance in front of a large audience as well. The 640-hp sports car was driven in a parade through downtown Spa, attracted a lot of attention in the paddock and led the field of race entrants on the warm-up lap. Starting in 2020, the youngest of Audi Sport customer racing’s four models will be able to compete in customers’ hands in three international championships to be held in America, Europe and Asia. It is also the ideal race car for Track Days and for deployments in Race Resorts.
