Belgian Audi Club Team WRT For Baku GT Race
The Belgian Audi Club has just announced it will enter a fourth Audi R8 LMS ultra in the closing round of the FIA GT Series to be held in Baku, Azerbaijan next 22-24 November. The car will be entrusted to Portugal’s Filipe Albuquerque (28), who has already raced for Team WRT in 2011 and 2012, and to France’s Grégoire Demoustier (22), who will debut with the team at this occasion.
Demoustier and Albuquerque will join efforts with the squad’s regular line-ups: Ortelli-Vanthoor, Sandström-Stippler and Mayr-Melnhof-Rast. The fourth car is aimed at enhancing this stellar event, which will bring a FIA championship to the urban track of Baku for the first time.
The squad’s objective for this last race of the FIA GT Series will be to secure the Teams’ title for the Belgian Audi Club Team WRT, which currently enjoys a 28-point lead in the overall standings. The Azerbaijan race will also be decisive for the Drivers’ title, which cannot escape Team WRT, as the only three contenders left are Ortelli-Vanthoor, Sandström-Stippler and Mayr-Melnhof.
