  • Mirko Bortolotti/Christopher Haase/Markus Winkelhock runners-up with Audi Sport Team Car Collection
  • Three Audi R8 LMS in the top ten at the biggest endurance race
  • Class win for the Audi R8 LMS GT4 and podium for the Audi RS 3 LMS

Fighting for its sixth overall victory in the turbulent 48th running of the Nürburgring 24 Hours, Audi Sport customer racing had to admit defeat by just a few seconds. Audi Sport drivers Mirko Bortolotti, Christopher Haase and Markus Winkelhock in the Audi R8 LMS crossed the finish line in the most adverse conditions in the Eifel region as runners-up. They achieved this result as a squad of three after their team-mate Robin Frijns, who had originally been planned to race with them in Audi Sport Team Car Collection, was unable to compete due to an infection with the common cold.
