The Belgian Audi Club Team WRT heads to Misano summer round as a four times leader
Summer is coming and beach resorts are getting full of holiday-makers; so it will be in Misano Adriatico this weekend, on the track carrying the name of Marco Simoncelli, located just meters away from the coast. The Italian track hosts the third round of the Blancpain Sprint Cup, a little later in the season than usual, which will guarantee an even bigger crowd of spectators for the two races. The first one, on Saturday eve, will be a sunset race rather than the night one it used to be, but will certainly have its magic. The Belgian Audi Club Team WRT is not going to Italy only to enjoy the atmosphere, but mainly to defend the current leading position it enjoys in the four overall standings (both the Drivers’ and Teams’ rankings of the Sprint Cup and the Blancpain GT Series). As from this round, the Belgian squad is upgrading its effort in the Sprint Cup and will enter for the reminder of the season a fourth Audi R8 LMS, entrusted to Belgium’s Adrien de Leener and Swiss young gun Ricardo Feller.
