The Belgian Audi Club Team WRT takes win and heavy points at Imola season-opener
A delayed season, a long wait but a great start! The 2020 GT World Challenge Europe could not start in a better way for the Belgian Audi Club Team WRT, as it took a dominant win in the Endurance Cup season-opener at Imola. With a perfect race, the Audi R8 LMS #31 of Matthieu Vaxivière and Audi Sport drivers Kelvin van der Linde and Mirko Bortolotti grabbed the lead shortly before the half-race mark and kept the advantage until the chequered flag, in a race marked by the hot weather and the numerous neutralizations. Car #32 rounded the result, with Charles Weerts and Audi Sport drivers Dries Vanthoor and Christopher Mies finishing in an excellent 4th, very close to the podium. Car #33, entered in Silver Cup for Rik Breukers, Stuart Hall and Benjamin Goethe, was less lucky and paid toll to a race incident while fighting for the honors, finishing 8th in the class.
