GT Sprint: Thomas Schöffler crowned champion with MTM Audi R8 LMS

By Johan Laubscher

The Superstars GT Sprint finale was at Vallelunga this weekend. MTM Motorsport topped off a great season with a tremendous result with their Audi R8 LMS in Italy.

MTM’s lead driver, Thomas Schöffler, arrived at Vallelunga as the driver’s championship points leader. He was again joined by Johan Kristoffersson, after their double victory at Imola last time out.

The MTM pairing qualified third for race one and sixth for race two.

Race one saw them finishing in eighth place. This result was enough to ensure that Thomas Schöffler was crowned as the 2013 GT Sprint champion, with one race to spare. The second and final race of the day yielded a ninth place classification, closing off the 2013 GT Sprint season.

It has been a great season for MTM Motorsport and their Audi R8 LMS with Thomas Schöffler as champion.
