A brillinat race victory for Audi driver Nathan Antunes in the second and final Australian GT Championship race of the weekend at Townswville.

Behind the wheel of the #6 Audir R8 LMS ultra from Skwirk / Beechwood, Nathan Antunes crossed the finish line victrious at the end of the an action packed 1-hour sprint race. The Audi driver was ahead of a Ferrari 458 GT3 from Maranello Motorsport.

Nathan Antunes proving again that he is one of the strongest drivers in a highly competitive Austrialian GT field.

Best of  the JAMEC PEM Racing Audis was the #75 R8 LMS ultra driven by Steve McLaughlan in sixth place overall.

Unluky race again for the sister #74 Audi R8 LMS ultra despite setting the fastest time in todays event. The car started from the front row in the hands of of Christopher Mies and Greg Crick and finished the race in eighth place. Christopher Mies was given a drive through penalty after a contact with a McLaren. That ended any chance of victory or podium spot for the quick #74 JAMEC Audi.

The next round of the Australian GT Championship will be at Sydney Motorsport Park in late August.
