The opening round of the Australian GT Championship concluded on Sunday at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide. The third and final race of the weekend saw success and misfortune for the Audi Sport customer racing teams.
Saturday was a day to remember for Nathan Antunes and Melbourne Performance Centre. He piloted the #6 Skwirk/Beechwood Homes Audi R8 LMS ultra to victory in both races one and two. Further Audi success came from the Greg Taylor Racing (Wall Racing) team and the #38 Audi R8 LMS driven by Greg Taylor and Barton Mawer, who won the Trophy class in the first race.
Nathan Antunes started from pole position for the final Australian GT Championship race of the weekend on Sunday and led the field towards the first corner. Antunes took a wide entry into the first corner and maintained the lead whilst chaos broke out behind him.
