ADAC GT Masters: Fifth place for Audi in Lausitzring race 1

By Tarek Ramchani

Three Audi R8 LMS ultra cars finished within the top 10 in ADAC GT Masters race 1 at the Lausitzring today. The best ranked car was fifth overall, after an action packed 1-hour sprint event.

Christer Jöns and Markus Winkelhock, who qualified eighth yesterday, finished in fifth. They shared the #28 Audi R8 LMS ultra from Prosperia C.Abt Racing. Their teammates, Rahel Frey and Christopher Haase, were eighth with the #26 Audi R8 LMS ultra. Ninth was the #1 Audi of MS Racing driven by Sebastian Asch and Florian Stoll.

Bad luck for championship title contenders Christopher Mies and René Rast. The Prosperia C.Abt Racing drivers only finished in fourteenth place with their #27 Audi R8 LMS ultra. Eleventh was the #100 Audi from MS Racing with drivers Daniel Dobitsch and Aditya Patel. Fifteenth was the #16 Audi of THE BOSS YACO RACING, in the hands of Philip Geipel and Frank Schmickler.

Race 2 is set for tomorrow. We wish the best of luck to all the Audi teams and their drivers.
