BES: Double duty for Belgian Audi Club Team WRT in 2014

By Tarek Ramchani

The Belgian Audi Club Team WRT had a very busy 2013 season. The team managed by Vincent Vosse took part in both the Blancpain Endurance Series and the FIA GT Series.

No official announcements yet from the Belgian Audi customer team about their 2014 plans, but according to our friends at Endurance-Info, the team is about to have a similar program as in 2013. WRT may return to the Blancpain Endurance Series, where the team had a season of ups and downs, in part due to a penalizing Balance of Performance. WRT plans also to take part in the new Blancpain GT Sprint, which is in fact a new name for the current FIA GT Series. The drivers and the number of Audi R8 LMS ultra cars will be announced later.

Belgian Audi Club Team WRT is at Baku with no less than four Audi R8 LMS ultra cars for the FIA GT Series season finale this weekend. WRT drivers will fight amongst each other for the drivers' title. The Belgian squad will also be fighting for the teams' trophy against the Sebastien Loeb Racing McLaren team.
