10 May 2015

Reigning Blancpain GT Series champion Laurens Vanthoor and Robin Frijns dominated both qualifying and main races of the Brands Hatch round of the 2015 Blancpain Sprint Series, despite almost destroying the car during Saturday’s free practice and Vanthoor feeling unwell all through race day.

The Belgian Audi Club Team WRT duo beat the #77 BMW Sports Trophy Team Brazil Z4 of Valdeno Brito and Atila Abreu, with the #55 Attempto Racing McLaren of Kevin Estre and Rob Bell taking third. In Silver Cup the win went to #83 Bentley Team HTP Continental of Szymkowiak and Lombard. The Frenchman produced a stunning comeback, after a spin in the opening lap. In Pro-Am nobody came near the #70 GT Russian Team Mercedes of Bernd Schneider and Alexey Karachev.
