WRT Audi team rules Hungaroring Blancpain GT

In winning Sunday’s Main Race in the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup, the No. 5 Belgian Audi Club Team WRT crew of Dries Vanthoor and Marcel Fassler put the final note on a perfect weekend at the Hungaroring.

The duo ended up sweeping every session held at the tight and twisty grand prix track, while WRT placed four of its Audis in the top five of Sunday’s 60-minute contest.

The No. 63 GRT Grasser Racing Team Lamborghini Huracan GT3 of Christian Engelhart and Mirko Bortolotti managed to hold on to third place to score valuable points and cement their grasps on their overall lead in the Blancpain GT Series championship.

In the Silver Cup, Jules Szymkowiak and Fabian Schiller made it two class wins in as many races with the No. 85 HTP Motorsport Mercedes-AMG GT3. Daniel Keilwitz and Alexander Mattschull (No. 333 Rinaldi Racing Ferrari 488 GT3) achieved the same feat in the Pro-Am category. 

Unfortunately, Kessel Racing’s David Perel and Stephen Earle could not bring the No. 888 Am Cup-entered Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 home after the car was hit from behind in the second half of the race.
