Perfect weekend in Italy for the Belgian Audi Club Team WRT as Riberas-Mies win twice
The visit to Misano, this time, was blessed with a double triumph for the Belgian Audi Club: on the circuit nested in the beach resort on the Adriatic shores, the Audis R8 LMS, although not the fastest cars on track, managed to bring home both Race 1 and Race 2 thanks to faultless performances by the drivers behind and the crews in the pits. Álex Riberas and Christopher Mies were the heroes of the weekend, as they signed both successes, strengthening their lead in the Blancpain GT Series overall standings and taking command also in the standings of the Sprint Cup. Dries Vanthoor-Will Stevens added another podium, after taking second in Race 2, with Stuart Leonard-Sheldon van der Linde twice in the points and Adrien De Leener-Ricardo Feller also scoring on their debut.
For the Belgian Audi Club Team WRT, who reinforces its leading position in the Teams’ standings of both the Blancpain GT Series and the Sprint Cup, there couldn’t be a better way to head towards the Total 24 Hours of Spa, the greatest race on the GT scene that will take place on home soil in one month.
