BRCC: Pole and a podium for PK Carsport Audi R8 LMS at Spa

By Johan Laubscher

The Belgian Racing Car Championship (BRCC) was at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend. They hosted round four of the series as a support event for the Spa 24 Hours. PK Carsport was there and achieved very good results.

PK Carsport has been a regular BRCC competitor this year, entering their #7 Audi R8 LMS which is driven by Anthony Kumpen, Bert Longin and Maarten Makelberge. They tasted victory at the first event of the season at Zolder, and things looked very good this weekend.

The team achieved pole position for the BRCC race at Spa, which was held on Friday afternoon, before the Spa 24 Hours Superpole. They were over a second ahead of the field during the wet qualifying session. The hour-long race itself saw the PK Carsport squad converting pole into a solid finish. Third place overall and yet another podium finish and good points for the season.

The race was won by the GPR Aston Martin, ahead of the Prospeed Competition Porsche 911.

Round five of the BRCC will again be hosted at Spa, a 600 km event which will take place in September.
