Blancpain GT: Belgian Audi Club Team WRT testing at Silverstone

By Johan Laubscher

Belgian Audi Club Team WRT continued their busy preparation schedule by testing at Silverstone today. They are preparing for their multi-car assault on the Blancpain GT Series.

It has been a busy few weeks for the Belgian Audi Sport customer racing team. They were out testing at Nogaro in France last week and at Silverstone today. Tests at Monza, Paul Ricard, Zolder and Spa are also on the team’s schedule for the coming weeks, including the official Blancpain GT Series test days at Paul Ricard on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.

The team will be entering up to four cars within the Blancpain GT Series and taking part in two 24 Hour races.

The new Blancpain GT Series is a combination of the Blancpain Endurance Series and the Blancpain Sprint Series, for teams who are able to commit to both individual series.

The team will be entering four cars in the Blancpain Sprint Series and three cars in the Blancpain Endurance Series, with an additional fourth car at the Spa 24 Hours. Three of their four cars will then be in the running for the combined Blancpain GT Series.

WRT will be joined by G-Drive Racing during 2014, with a G-Drive car fielded in the Blancpain Sprint Series and the Nürburgring 24 Hours.

WRT will also be fielding an Audi R8 LMS ultra in the V de V Endurance Series in France, for drivers Harry Teneketzian and Gregroire Chaix.
