LOTS OF MISFORTUNE, STRONG FIGHTBACKS

On the tenth race weekend, all four Audi Sport drivers repeatedly suffered setbacks, but demonstrated a strong fighting spirit in the races. The best result was achieved by Frédéric Vervisch from Comtoyou Team Audi Sport: from eighth on the grid, the Belgian improved to third position in the third race. Previously, the pro had to accept as many as two disappointments: shortly after having entered race one from the fifth spot on the grid, a puncture forced him to pit. In the second race, he was unable to take up his third spot on the grid due to a defective drive shaft. Jean-Karl Vernay made up a lot of positions as well: the Frenchman from Leopard Racing Team Audi Sport fought back from 18th to tenth position in the first race, from 18th to 14th in the second and from 20th to twelfth place in the third sprint. His team-mate, Gordon Shedden fought back in the first race from 22nd position to 15 th and Niels Langeveld from Comtoyou Team Audi Sport posted a 15th spot as his best result as well.
