GT Open: Top 10 result and a lot of frustration for Team Novadriver Audi in Hungaroring race 2

By Tarek Ramchani

As was the case in race 1, Team Novadriver had a very difficult International GT Open race 2 at the Hungaroring.

The #58 Audi R8 LMS ultra in the hands of César Campaniço and Aditya Patel finished the 33-lap race in thenth place overall. The two drivers were sixth within the GTS class open to GT3 cars.

At Budapest the Portuguese Audi Sport customer racing team was left without a single chance to challenge the front runners. Overall it was a 1-2 Corvette C6.R win but it was an all Ferrari 458 GT3 in GTS class. The Audi R8 LMS ultra was heavily penalized in the Hungarian event.

César Campaniço and Aditya Patel are now thriteenth overall in the dirver's standing with 38 points each. The International GT Open will resume at Silverstone, July 18th-20th.
