Title success in debut season

 

The Audi R8 LMS GT2 is the winner of the inaugural GT2 European Series. The Danish Audi customer team High Class Racing prevailed in the Pro-Am classification on the final weekend at Le Castellet with Anders Fjordbach and Mark Patterson.


In the first of two 50-minute races, Patterson started from the pit lane behind the field and moved up to sixth place by the time of the pit stop. Teammate Anders Fjordbach took over the No. 33 Audi and improved to third overall in the second half of the race, finishing second in the Pro-Am standings.



Third place in this class went to title rivals Peter Guelinckx/Bert Longin from PK Carsport, who also race an Audi R8 LMS GT2. In the second race Anders Fjordbach built up a lead of 40 seconds by the time the drivers changed. Team-mate Mark Patterson only paid attention to bringing his Audi to the finish unscathed at the end. With a 9.1 second advantage he celebrated his and Fjordbach’s fifth victory of the season.


This means that the Audi R8 LMS GT2 has won a total of eight of the ten races in the GT2 European Series. With six brands, the grid was better than ever before at the finale. With a 27-point lead, the Dane Anders Fjordbach and Mark Patterson – an American with South African roots – are the first Pro-Am champions of this race series that is specifically aimed at gentleman drivers.



The Belgians Peter Guelinckx/Bert Longin ended the season as runners-up after finishing third in the Pro-Am class in the final race.
