Sainteloc sticks with Audi for multi-car campaign in GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS

21 February 2020

Sainteloc Racing is set for another busy campaign in 2020, with the French squad preparing to run as many as three full-season cars in GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS. 

The team will continue its relationship with Audi Sport this term, with three R8 LMS GT3s entries planned for the Sprint Cup. The Endurance Cup programme will feature either two or three cars, with two set to be on the grid for the Total 24 Hours of Spa. In each case, there will be at least one Sainteloc machine chasing overall honours. 

Line-ups are yet to be confirmed, though long-standing Audi Sport drivers Christopher Haase and Markus Winkelhock are likely to once again lead the way. Haase has been part of the squad since 2016, while Winkelhock joined the following year.

The German pair scored victory at the Total 24 Hours of Spa in 2017, with Jules Gounon completing their crew. They were joined by Fred Vervisch at the past two runnings, scoring back-to-back fourth-place finishes in the Belgian endurance classic. The team also showed impressive speed at Sprint events last term, with Haase and Simon Gachet taking a win at Zandvoort and four further podiums. 

Sainteloc will join the rest of this season's GT World Challenge Europe competitors at Circuit Paul Ricard for the series' official test days on 12/13 March.
