NURBURGRING-24 Hours Speedhunters team WRT AUDI
The Speedhunters Team WRT will not forget its first time in the "Green
Hell". The 24 Hours of the Nürburgring, for its 40th edition, kept all his
promises, proving once again to possibly be the toughest race in the world
and one of the major motorsports events for the fans. The Belgian squad,
for its debut in this very special race, did well, bringing to the finish
line the R8 officially entered on this occasion by Speedhunters Team WRT.
The final position, 32nd, does not really reflect the potential expressed,
as the car was among top contenders for almost half of the race.
Unfortunately, it was slowed down twice, by a race incident first and a
mechanical intervention later on, two things that are among the predictable
events occurring during the long run at the Nordschleife. Most importantly,
Edward Sandström, Allan Simonsen, Andrea Piccini and Oliver Jarvis, as
well as the entire team, can be proud of the work achieved and of having
contributed to Audi's first success in this legendary race, as the R8s of
the Phoenix and Mamerow teams took a memorable 1-2 win.
