Two Audi R8 LMS at BRCC Zolder Test Day

By Johan Laubscher

The Belgian Racing Car Championship (BRCC) held their official test day at Zolder on Friday. Two older Audi R8 LMS were entered for the test.

PK Carsport has entered one red and white Audi R8 LMS as a full season BRCC entry. The team has completed a number of pre-season testing sessions and also attended the official BRCC test day. More can be read about the team HERE.

The second Audi R8 LMS was listed on the test day entry list as Belgian Racing. On the day it emerged that the car was indeed the MOMO-Megatron-dF1 R8 LMS, which will be seen in the ELMS this year. Dylan Derdaele is one of Belgian Racing drivers and he is also listed as one of the Momo ELMS drivers. Thus the team used the Zolder test day as a testing opportunity for the Audi R8 LMS ahead of the first ELMS round at Silverstone. More can be read about the team HERE.

The first BRCC round will take place at Zolder on the FIA GT Series weekend. So far only one Audi is entered for the event, the single R8 LMS from PK Carsport.
