VLN: Phoenix Racing Audi won the season opener at the Nürburgring

By Tarek Ramchani

Perfect day for Phoenix Racing at the Nürburgring. The Audi Sport customer racing team dominated the VLN Endurance Championship season opener.

Earlier this morning Phoenix Racing took a sensational pole position in the first event of the season, the 60. ADAC Westfalenfahrt.

Phoenix Racing battled very hard in the 4-hour endurance event and won against strong GT3 rivals from BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. The winning Audi was shared by Frank Stippler, Laurens Vanthoor and Marc Basseng, all of them factory quattro GmbH drivers.

Unfortunately the #44 Audi R8 LMS ultra from Twin Busch Motorsport was forced to retire.
