Frédéric Vervisch and Comtoyou Team Audi Sport celebrated the seventh win for the Audi RS 3 LMS in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup with Audi Sport customer racing at the Slovakiaring. At the third race weekend of the 2019 season, the Belgian got away well off the line from ninth place on a damp track in race one. In the first lap alone, he overtook seven rivals. Putting in a breathtaking charge, he swept past the leading car in lap five. Thus, Vervisch claimed his second WTCR victory after his maiden win last year at the finale in Macau. Thanks to his achievement and the results of the three other Audi Sport drivers, the marque has experienced the most successful FIA WTCR weekend so far this year. Earning 74 points, the combined points’ tally of all drivers was one more than at the season-opening round in Morocco.
