AvD 100 Meilen: GT podium for RS Tuning Audi R8 LMS ultra at Dijon

By Johan Laubscher

The AvD 100 Meilen held round five alongside the DMV TCC at Dijon this weekend. It was another strong showing for the RS Tuning Audi R8 LMS ultra.

RS Tuning were victorious with their #8 Audi R8 LMS ultra at the Red Bull Ring last time out, when they won overall in a very wet race. The team again entered a single Audi R8 LMS ultra for the endurance event at Dijon, the penultimate AvD 100 Meilen event for the 2013 season. It had already proven to be a good weekend for the team, as they achieved a class podium in each of the two DMV TCC races held at Dijon on Saturday.

The #77 Audi R8 LMS ultra, driven by Suzanne Weidt and Dietmar Haggenm├╝ller, qualified in seventh place overall behind the prototype cars, but they were on pole position within the GT class. They completed the endurance race by finishing in seventh position overall, taking second place in the GT class.

The finale of the 2013 AvD 100 Meilen season will be taking place at Monza in three weeks time.
