Audi customer teams - Second place and the lead in the standings in Australia

Audi’s customer teams did not experience an ideal fifth race weekend in the GT World Challenge Australia. Mercedes driver Prince Jefri Ibrahim spun the Audi R8 LMS of leader of the standings Yasser Shahin after a controversial start at The Bend Motorsport Park and collected a 15-second penalty for this.


Liam Talbot later overtook leader Ibrahim in the Shannons Insurance Team Audi and built up an eight-second lead by the time of the driver change. Fraser Ross took over the car from Talbot and led the 60-minute contest for a long time.

 

Only on the last lap did Mercedes driver Broc Feeney manage to overtake his Audi rival. Talbot/Ross were beaten by only two seconds. Fourth place went to Yasser Shahin/Garth Tander from The Bend Motorsport Park team.


After bad weather prevented the second race from being held, Shahin now leads the Pro Am standings by eleven points ahead of Ibrahim, while Talbot is a further three points behind in third.

 

Two events are still in the calendar until the beginning of December.
