  • Second place at Kyalami for Mirko Bortolotti/Frédéric Vervisch/Charles Weerts
  • Two more Audi R8 LMS cars in the top ten
  • Audi Sport third best of nine brands in Intercontinental GT Challenge

In an extremely thrilling finale of the Intercontinental GT Challenge (IGTC), Audi Sport Team WRT improved from seventh place to second position. Mirko Bortolotti/Frédéric Vervisch/Charles Weerts crossed the finish line 22 hundredths of a second behind the winners in the rain chaos behind the safety car. However, in addition to the joy about the improvement in the course of the race, there was also disappointment in the Audi camp: victory seemed within reach shortly before the end.
