Class success at Shanghai


Team TKR in round three of the China Endurance Championship celebrated a class victory. Chen Bohan/Xie Peihan/Jing Zefeng/Su Yanming won the GTC class in an Audi R8 LMS at Shanghai after 4 hours and 40 minutes of racing.




Second place at Watkins Glen



Team Rearden Racing impressed with a strong performance on the sixth race weekend of the Pirelli GT4 America SprintX at Watkins Glen. In a field of 23 entrants, Vesko Kozarov/Jeff Burton in the first of two races finished runners-up in an Audi R8 LMS GT4.


Consequently, as previously in the second event in Virginia, they scored the full number of points in the AM classification for the third time.




Two victories at Watkins Glen




Michael McCann Jr. managed an impeccable weekend in the TC America. The American with Team McCann Racing won both sprint races in an Audi RS 3 LMS with more than a two-second advantage in the sixth event at Watkins Glen.


In the TCR Cup class, one driver was dominant throughout the weekend as well: Canadian Travis Hill in an Audi RS 3 LMS with a dual-clutch transmission scored class victory in both races for TWOth Autosport.






Third victory for Audi in TCR Italy




On the fifth race weekend of the TCR Italy an Audi driver won a race for the third time. Enrico Bettera, who had previously stood on the top step of the podium at the opening event at Monza, was again unbeatable in the first race at Imola in an Audi RS 3 LMS.



During the course of 14 laps, he pulled clear of his closest rival by 3.4 seconds. In the standings, he is ranked in fourth position in the 23-strong field as the best Audi driver. In the second race, Jacopo Guidetti in another Audi RS 3 LMS achieved third position.





Second victory in the TCR DSG Endurance



Ermanno Dionisio and Giacomo Barri won a round of the TCR DSG Endurance for the second time. Following their success at Vallelunga in May, the driver pairing from BF Motorsport prevailed again at Imola, with a one-second advantage after two hours of racing. In the standings, the two drivers as runners-up have reduced their gap to Alessandro and Giovanni Altoè by eight to 18 points before the finale.



 At the same time, Dionisio before the finale at Mugello in October is leading the Gentleman classification of the endurance racing series.





Commanding performance in China




The Audi RS 3 LMS dominated its class in the third round of the China Endurance Championship. Team New Faster after 93 race laps locked out the podium. The victorious driver trio of Sun Junlong/Liang Zhiwei/Zou Balong won the endurance race at Shanghai with a one-lap advantage.





Russell Ingall on podium again



In the TCR Australia, Russell Ingall continued his string of podium results in an Audi RS 3 LMS. The 55-year-old touring car expert, who on the fourth race weekend had clinched a third and two second places, secured another trophy in the fifth event at Winton.



In the third sprint on the circuit in the South Australian state of Victoria, he crossed the finish line for the Melbourne Performance Centre in third position.
