Two trophies in Italy:In the Italian Coppa Italia Turismo grassroots racing series, the Audi customer teams secured two trophies on the fourth race weekend. Alfredo de Matteo was the best of four drivers of an Audi RS 3 LMS on the Vallelunga circuit in the first race. He crossed the finish line in second place after 14 laps. In the second race, Carlotta Fedeli achieved the best result for the RS 3 LMS in third place.
Second place at Le Castellet:In the French Ultimate Cup Series, the AC Motorsport team recorded second place on the third race weekend. Belgian Mathieu Detry and Frenchman Stéphane Perrin shared the Audi RS 3 LMS in the endurance race at Le Castellet. After four hours, they were the only one of five chasing teams in the UTCR class to manage the same distance as the winners with 94 laps.
Podium finish in Lithuania:On the Palanga circuit on the Lithuanian Baltic Sea, the Inter Rao Lietuva by Texaco customer team celebrated a podium finish with the Audi RS 3 LMS. The driver trio Mindaugas Varža, Egidijus Valeiša and Justas Jonušis finished the ten-hour Baltic TCR Trophy race called Aurum 1006 km Lenktynes in second place in their class.
Date shift in the FIA WTCR:The fourth round of the WTCR - FIA World Touring Car Cup on the Adria circuit, which was originally scheduled for July 30 to August 1, will be postponed. This eliminates the date clash with the Spa 24 Hours. Audi Sport driver Frédéric Vervisch was scheduled to start in Italy as a regular participant in the FIA WTCR and is therefore not in the line-up for the classic in the Ardennes. "Even if Fred does now become available at short notice, we are sticking to our announced line-up for Spa," says Chris Reinke, Head of Audi Sport customer racing. "Fred is an excellent driver who has already won the 24-hour races in Dubai and at the Nürburgring with us in 2019. He is and will remain an integral part of our team and will have many more opportunities to fight for victories for us in endurance races in the future."
