Audi R8 LMS makes headway in Blancpain GT series

Together with the Belgian Laurens Vanthoor, Frijns had clinched three victories in the 2015 season at Brands Hatch, Zolder and Portimão. As Vanthoor was forced to take a break due to an injury sustained in an accident, Frijns competed in the season finale at Zandvoort in the Netherlands together with the German Christopher Mies. Following a spin in Saturday’s qualifying race, the duo had started the main race from position 14 on the grid and, with a strong recovery, advanced to second place.

With that, Frijns won the title in the higher-level Blancpain GT Series, which is calculated from the results in the sprint and the endurance championships. In the Blancpain Sprint Series, Frijns finished the season as the runner-up in the standings. The Belgian Audi Club Team WRT remained unbeaten in the most important Pan-European GT3 series. The squad of Vincent Vosse had won the teams’ championships in all three series early.
