The Belgian Audi Club Team WRT had an excellent weekend at the Hungaroring near Budapest in the penultimate round of the Blancpain GT Series’ Sprint Cup. Four podium finishes was the harvest of the Belgian squad, which saw all its six cars classified in both races. The best-placed duo in the sprint Cup, Enzo Ide-Christopher Mies retook the lead in the Drivers’ standings, after clinching victory in the Qualifying Race (it’s their third success of the season) and finishing second in the Main Race, where will Stevens-René Rast were third.

Laurens Vanthoor-Fred Vervisch took that same spot in the Qualifying Race and did actually came in second in the Main Race, before dropping to P8 after a post-race penalty.  

Team Principal Vincent Vosse was a happy man at the end of the weekend: “We put on a very strong team result, which is what we were looking for. We go away with one win, three other podium finishes, all cars classified in both races and very heavy points. On top, three of our cars were the best Audis on track this weekend, and we again take the Pit Stop Challenge. It’s really a good weekend and I congratulate everybody for their excellent work. We are now in a very good position in the Sprint Cup championship and ready to go for it at the last round.
