GT Open: Frustrating race 1 for Team Novadriver Audi in Hungaroring

By Tarek Ramchani

The Hungaroring near Budapest hosted the first International GT Open race of the weekend. Team Novadrvier the only Audi in the field had a frustrating event.

The Portuguese Audi Sport customer racing team finished the race in eighth overall and fifth within the GTS class. The car was shared by César Campaniço and Aditya Patel.

Team Novadriver drivers battled really hard but were clearly penalized by the Balance of Performance and simply couldn't fairly fight for the top spots.

Race victory went to the #63 Ferrari 458 GT3 from Ombra Racing. The #56 Ferrari 458 GT3 from AF Corse was second. The #2 Corvette C6.R from V8 Racing was third.

The second race is set for tomorrow. We wish the best of luck to Team Novadriver and their drivers.
