Despite the somewhat erratic weather that plagued this past weekend’s Nürburgring 24 Hours, a pair of Audi R8 LMS ultra GT3 race cars managed to secure a one-two finish for the brand with the four rings at the grueling race.
Driving the overall winner was a German quartet consisting of Marc Basseng, Christopher Haase, Frank Stippler and Markus Winkelhock.
Together, they drove their Audi Sport Team Phoenix-backed R8 LMS ultra around the Green Hell 155 times over the course of 24 hours–the third overall victory for the team in the Nürburgring 24 Hours and the first for Audi.
Completing the one-two finish was Christian Abt, Michael Ammermüller, Armin Hahne and Christian Mamerow from Team Mamerow Racing.
