This weekend, the 2019 FIA GTC World Finals were held in Monte Carlo (MON). BMW DTM driver Philipp Eng (AUT) was a guest starter in Saturday’s Pro-Am race, in which he went up against the world’s top Gran Turismo drivers.



Together with team-mate Giorgio Mangano (ITA), winner of the 2018 Nations Cup, he produced a thrilling comeback to finish runner-up. In the Manufacturer Series, sim racers Coque López (ESP), Nicólas Rubila (CHI) and Randall Haywood (USA) were challenging for the title in the BMW M6 GT3.


Eng was on hand to support the trio and pass on his knowledge as a professional racing driver. “Sim racing is part of my everyday life – and it makes me a better racing driver,” said Eng.



“As such, it was fantastic to be here at the FIA GTC World Finals and to support the three guys.” In the end, after three races, the team finished eighth overall in the Manufacturer Series.
