In the sixth event of the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup, Audi Sport customer racing with the RS 3 LMS achieved a clear improvement during the course of the weekend.

DIFFICULT BEGINNING

For Jean-Karl Vernay and Leopard Racing Team Audi Sport, as well as for Frédéric Vervisch and Comtoyou Team Audi Sport, the weekend began with disappointments: after race one, disqualifications were imposed against both teams due to non-compliance with charge pressure tolerances at individual measuring points. Both teams exercised their rights and lodged appeals. Vernay lost tenth place in the race retroactively, Frédéric Vervisch was disqualified from position 20. In the subsequent second qualifying, Vernay achieved sixth place.

ENDING ON A POSITIVE NOTE

After starting from fifth place on a reversed grid of the top ten, Vernay, in race two, improved to fourth position. As a result, the Frenchman equalized his so far second-best result this season. Frédéric Vervisch from 13th on the grid improved by one position. In the subsequent third race, Vernay, from sixth on the grid, again made up one position. In total, the Audi Sport driver scored 24 points in the process. In the debut, following a difficult qualifying, Niels Langeveld from Comtoyou Team Audi Sport delivered a brilliant performance in the race twice. In the second heat, he fought back from 24th to 18th place and in the third heat even from 26th to 16th – notably, on a narrow city track that hardly provides any room for overtaking manoeuvres. No other driver in the field made up so many positions. Following a ten-week break, the FIA WTCR will continue its season in China in September.
