The Belgian Audi Club Team WRT off to special Paul Ricard race to defend leadership in all standings
Summer is around the corner, and with the warm days comes the Ricard… We are meaning the Circuit Paul Ricard, obviously, as the stop in Southern France has become one of the most characteristic, popular and awaited rounds in the Blancpain GT Series calendar. The event, part of the Endurance Cup, is unique in its kind, as it is run on a 6-hour format (being the longest race of the season after the Total 24 Hours of Spa) and takes place on Saturday eve, finishing in total darkness. This year, the iconic track near Le Castellet will present itself in shining condition and with many improvements, as it readies for hosting again the French F.1 Grand-Prix at the end of June, 28 years after its last edition. The Belgian Audi Club Team WRT, which currently enjoys the leading position in both the Teams’ and Drivers’ standings in the Endurance Cup as well as in the overall Blancpain GT Series, has a clear mission: to defend those positions. The two Audis R8 of the Belgian squad are entrusted to the usual line-ups, with Fred Vervisch subbing again for Robin Frijns.
