Blancpain Sprint Series: Silver-Cup victories and big points for I.S.R. Racing Audis in Nogaro opener

I.S.R. Racing Press Release

The opening round of the Blancpain Sprint Series 2015, race held on the French circuit of Nogaro, awarded the first success to team I.S.R. racing thanks to the double win secured by the brothers Thomas and Anders Fjordbach (DNK) in the Silver Cup.

A tricky tarmac that was humid in some spots on Saturday's qualifying prevented the two Audi R8 LMS ultra of the Czech team to show their full potential, as Bonanomi-Salaquarda and the Fjordbach pairing were careful not to make any mistake that would compromise the outcome of their weekend.

The Qualifying Race on Sunday witnessed a great comeback from both lineups: Bonanomi and Salaquarda managed to get back all the way to absolute P6 on the number 75 car, and were followed by the Fjordbach brothers on the number 74 challenger, as the pairing secured in this way the victory in the Silver Cup.

The positive 'weekend' of the two Danish brothers was rounded up in the best possible way in the Main Race, that was, as tradition, exceptionally run on Monday. The two clinched another victory in the Silver Cup. Bonanomi and Salaquarda also put in a solid race, ending seventh at the flag after a consistent race.

The Blancpain Sprint Series will resume next 10 May from Brands Hatch (UK).
