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.
