News Flash : Home win for Laurens Vanthoor and Robin Frijns in Zolder

7 June 2015

Blancpain Sprint Series leaders Laurens Vanthoor and Robin Frijns took their second consecutive main race win in the Zolder round of the 2015 season. At their home track the Belgian-Dutch duo dominated the race from start to finish, after the competition made a bit of a mess of the first corner.

Contact between the #84 Bentley Team HTP Continental and the #333 Rinaldi Racing Ferrari meant an immediate retirement for the Ferrari, and with the #2 Belgian Audi Club Team WRT incurring a penalty for jumping the start Frijns and Vanthoor were never really threatened.

Eventually Maxi Buhk and Vincent Abril in the #84 Bentley claimed second at the finish, with Atila Abreu and Valdeno Brito getting another podium finish in the #77 BMW Sports Trophy Team Brasil car. 

Rookie Tom Dillmann and Jules Szymkowiak claimed top spot in the Silver Cup in the #83 Bentley Team HTP machine. Bernd Schneider and Alexey Karachev did the same in the Pro-Am Cup, at the wheel of the first of the two GT Russian Team Mercedes.
