GT Tour: Sensational victory for Team Speed Car Audi at Magny-Cours race 1

By Tarek Ramchani

Audi had a great first race at Magny-Cours in the French FFSA GT Tour series today. A sensational race win for Team Speed Car and their #36 Audi R8 LMS ultra.

The Audi squad performed very well earlier today in the two qualifying sessions, with a fine pole position for Sainteloc Racing. In the race the Audis were strong again. The #36 Audi R8 LMS ultra from Team Speed Car crossed the finish line victorious. A great race from their drivers Dino Lunardi and Vincent Abril. They started from position nine on the grid and had impressive pace in the 1-hour sprint race. Dino Lunardi and Vincent Abril took their second victory of the season, after their race win at Spa-Francorchamps a few weeks ago.

The #83 Audi R8 LMS ultra from Sainteloc Racing did really well during race one. The car finished in a very strong fifth, having started way back from sixteenth on the grid.

The pole-sitting #42 Audi R8 LMS ultra from Sainteloc Racing faced bad luck. The car driven by David Hallyday and Gregory Guilvert finished in seventh place, after a very eventful race.

Race 2 is set for tomorrow with live stream coverage available at
