Posted on 13. Jan, 2018 by in Audi Canada

A year ago, Audi Sport patron racing had achieved a premiere feat in Dubai as good – in a TCR difficulty with a Audi RS 3 LMS. In this category, Team Bonk Motorsport contributed another lectern place in 2018. Michael Bonk’s patrol was not even disheartened by an early reversal and with a total bid demonstrated ideal group spirit. An collision on Wednesday that was not a driver’s error meant that a 127 series Audi RS 3 LMS was incompetent to start during all. Consequently, a drivers, Michael Bonk und Volker Piepmeyer, switched to a series 115 sister automobile and, together with Hermann Bock and Max and Rainer Partl, clinched third place in a TCR difficulty in front of a Audi RS 3 LMS from Lap57 Motorsport.

In a GT3 class, Audi was reduction advantageous with a R8 LMS this year. Vincent Vosse’s group that competed underneath a name of MS7 by WRT this time, due to hit with other competition cars, competition penalties and repairs, mislaid too most time to be in row for feat again as it had in 2016. As a result, Mohammed Bin Saud Al Saud, Christopher Mies, Dries Vanthoor and Michael Vergers had to settle for seventh place in a end. The respect of being Audi’s best GT3 group went to BWT Mücke Motorsport. For a initial time, Peter Mücke’s outfit contested a 24-hour race. Ricardo Feller/Christer Jöns/Mike David Ortmann/Andreas Weishaupt/Markus Winkelhock distinguished position 5 in a altogether classification. Car Collection Motorsport finished a competition with both Audi R8 LMS cars as well. Wiggo Dalmo/Gustav Edelhoff/Elmar Grimm/Dr. Johannes Kirchhoff/Ingo Vogler achieved fifth place in a A6-Am classification. Their teammates, Dimitri Parhofer/Dirg Parhofer/Frank Stippler/Rémi Terrail/Isaac Tutumlu Lopez, took ninth place in this class. 

In only dual weeks’ time, a subsequent iconic continuation competition will be on a calendar of Audi’s patron teams. In a 24-hour competition during Daytona and in a ancillary program, all 3 of Audi Sport patron racing’s competition automobile models will be on a grid for a initial time in North America.
