The high-caliber margin fought tighten battles opposite a whole competition stretch – 6 of a 8 marques finished in a tip ten. Remarkably for an continuation competition there was not a singular yellow duration during a 8 hours.
“Today we perceived acknowledgment of what a fiercely fought racing array a Intercontinental GT Challenge has become,” pronounced Chris Reinke, Head of Audi Sport patron racing. “Across a full competition stretch a whole margin fought tighten battles. That leaves no room for mistakes. Unfortunately, after dual victories in 2017 and 2018 here during Laguna Seca, we’re going home but a prize this time. Small things done a disproportion today. I’d like to appreciate a 6 drivers and a dual teams. They all did a good job. Now, we’re looking brazen and brazen to a dual arriving 24-hour races during a Nürburgring and during Spa.”
The Intercontinental GT Challenge will continue during a finish of Jul with turn three, a tradition-steeped 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps. The competition in Belgium will be followed by rounds in Japan (Suzuka) and Kyalami (South Africa).
