Macau yields all emotions, a podium in FIA WTCR and more positive outcomes for Team WRT
It was a typical Macau weekend for Team WRT, with the inevitable combination of satisfaction and frustration that racing in the uncomparable street circuit of Guia always leave. In the FIA WTCR, Leopard Racing Team Audi Sport, despite seeing prematurely its entry reduced to one car, took the best out of the events, with Jean-Karl Vernay back on the podium in Sunday’s Main Race and taking very valuable points. Ahead of the final round of the season, the Frenchman is still in contention for the final P5 in the championship, with the team and JKV also fighting for best Audi and VW Group honours.
In the FIA GT World Cup, the Audi R8 LMS followed by the Belgian squad proved competitive, but Dries Vanthoor on the car entered by Audi Sport Team WRT saw his efforts ruined by first lap misfortune in the Qualifying Race, while Charles Weerts completed a faultless and impressive debut at Macau, clinching a P7 as best result.
