The British campaign of the Blancpain GT Series continues this weekend with a second stop, this time at Silverstone for the second round of the Endurance Cup. Last week, the Sprint Cup’s event at Brands Hatch brought good results, including two podium finishes in the Main Race, for the Belgian Audi Club Team WRT, which is now hopeful to have the ‘real’ start of the season in the Endurance Cup as well.
After a bitter season-opener at Monza, the Audis R8 are ready to fight for top honours on the iconic home of the British GP. The Belgian squad heads to Northamptonshire with its usual Endurance 4-car entry, the only little change being that on car #17, Jamie Green will again sub for Robin Frijns, taken by his Formula E Commitments.
Team Principal Vincent Vosse’s expectations are clear: “We want Silverstone to be exactly what Brands Hatch meant in the Sprint Cup last week: our start of the season in the Endurance Cup. We want good results and we have everything it takes: a good car, fast and motivated drivers and a great team. We had a good working session at Silverstone on Sunday and we know the Audis can do well there. Still, we have to see how the others perform, but we are ready to fight to be up front.
