An exciting weekend on two fronts
Team WRT is ready for one of the most intense weekends of the season, as it heads to Brands Hatch for the season-opener of the Blancpain GT World Challenge Europe’s (what was previously known as the Sprint Cup) and to Hockenheim for its debut in the DTM.
The Blancpain series of sprint races sees its status upgraded this year, as it becomes the European branch of the GT World Challenge, which has similar counterparts in Asia and America. Nothing changes in the format and content, and the Belgian Audi Club Team WRT will continue to be one of the strongest forces of the field, entering
four Audis R8 LMS, with quite renewed driver line-ups.
The DTM, instead, represents a completely new challenge, as the Belgian squad, under the colours of WRT Team Audi Sport, makes its debut in what is considered one of the world’s top series for tin-top cars and one having the greatest following. Two Audis RS 5 DTM are entered for Pietro Fittipaldi and Jonathan Aberdein.
