ADAC GT Masters: Second place for Prosperica C.Abt Racing Audi in Slovakia Ring race 1

By Tarek Ramchani

The Audi R8 LMS ultra performed very well today at Solvakia Ring. ADAC GT Masters race 1 gave the Audi squad great satisfaction.

Christer Jöns and Markus Winkelhock driving the #28 Audi R8 LMS ultra from Prosperia C.Abt Racing finished in a strong second. The two drivers performed very well battling hard on a very wet track. Their team-mates Christopher Mies and René Rast with the #27 Audi R8 LMS ultra finished the 1-hour sprint race in fifth place. The third Audi from Prosperia C.Abt Racing had a strong pace too, the #26 R8 LMS ultra driven by Rahel Frey and Christopher Haase was eighth.

The remaining three Audi R8 LMS ultra were outside the top 10. The #1 car from MS Racing shared by Sebastian Asch and Florian Stoll was fifteenth. The #16 Audi from THE BOSS YACO RACING was seventeenth with drivers Philip Geipel and Filip Sladecka. Unfortunately the #100 Audi from MS Racing with Daniel Dobitsch and Aditya Patel was not classified.

Race victory went to the #12 BMW Z4 GT3 from DB Motorsport. Third behind the second place Audi was the #19 BMW Z4 GT3 from PIXUM Team Schubert. Race 1 results can be seen here.
