GT Sprint: Another double podium for MTM Audi R8 LMS at Donington Park

By Johan Laubscher

The Superstars GT Sprint championship was in Britain this weekend, hosting round six at Donington Park.

Thomas Schöffler has been behind the wheel of the #45 MTM Audi R8 LMS at all of the GT Sprint events this season. He arrived at Donington as the championship points leader. Oliver Jarvis, a factory Audi Sport driver, was Schöffler’s teammate this weekend.

They qualified on pole for race one, followed by a third spot for the race two grid. Race one saw the pair battling at the front and ultimately finishing in third. The second race yielded another third place result. Races one and two were dominated by the Team Ukraine Ferrari 458 Italias, finishing 1-2 in both races.

It was another good weekend for MTM and their Audi R8 LMS, gathering more vital championship points for Thomas Schöffler and his bid for the title.

Round seven of the Superstars GT Sprint will be returning to Italy, being hosted at Imola at the end of September.
