Zolder 24 Hours: One WRT Audi R8 LMS ultra on the entry list

By Johan Laubscher

Belgian Audi Club Team WRT are the two-time reigning Zolder 24 Hours race winners, having taken victory at the event in 2011 and 2012, both times with Audi. The Belgian team will be returning to Zolder for their title defense at the end of August.

The provisional Zolder 24 Hours entry list was released this week, and it includes one Audi entry, the Audi R8 LMS ultra from Belgian Audi Club Team WRT. Twenty-five cars are included on the entry list, a mixture of GT and smaller sports prototype cars.

Belgian Audi Club Team WRT will entrust their #1 Audi R8 LMS ultra to four Belgian race drivers: Laurens Vanthoor, Anthony Kumpen, Enzo Ide and Bert Longin. Their Audi R8 LMS ultra will also be featuring a creative livery. WRT along with GrafiWrap hosted a design competition which invited fans to submit livery designs for the Audi R8 LMS ultra. The winning livery will be seen on the WRT Audi at the Zolder 24 Hours. This livery is yet to be revealed ahead of the race.
