Belgian Audi Club Team WRT tops Sunday warm-up at the Hungaroring

27 August 2017

The Belgian Audi Club Team WRT has kept the momentum going at the Hungaroring after Budapest Qualifying Race winners Dries Vanthoor and Marcel Fässler went fastest in Sunday’s warm-up session with the #5 Audi R8 LMS.

A late flyer from Jules Gounon lifted the #87 AKKA ASP Mercedes AMG-GT3 he shared with Jean-Luc Beaubelique to second place overall and first in the Pro-Am class. Strakka Motorsport’s #42 McLaren 650S GT3 (Lewis Williamson/ Martin Kodric) claimed the Silver Cup honours with fourth place in the standings. David Perel continued to show strong pace aboard the #888 Kessel Racing Ferrari 458 Italia GT3, the only Am Cup-entered car in the Budapest field. The 20-minute session was the final dress rehearsal before the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup riders and runners line up for Sunday afternoon’s Main Race at the Hungaroring.
