GT Sprint Series - 4th meeting in Zolder

MTM R8 LMS and Thomas Schöffler close in on the lead

(PresseBox) ( Wettstetten, )
The teams had stepped up a gear for the fourth meeting of the GT Sprint Series at the Belgian Grand Prix course in Zolder: the favoured Lamborghini Gallardo LP 600 was piloted by the duo Kox/Pronk, the TM team had paired Thomas Schöffler with local matador Laurens Vanthoor while the competition in the guise of Ferrari 458 Italy, Chevrolet Corvette and Porsche 911 were banking on their customary crews.

The Audi Group's protagonists, the Lamborghini and MTM Audi, dominated the training runs as they did the subsequent races - with the happier ending for the favourite, which was finally able to live up to its role. The spectators witnessed two tight decisions in the Lamborghini's favour, which admittedly on one occasion benefited from a "drive-through penalty" for the Audi, which was leading at the time.

In the first run, Del Castello and Necchi took third place with their Corvette, ahead of Cordoni and Mantovani in a Ferrari 458 Italia and Solieri in a Porsche 911 GT 3.

The same picture emerged for the first two places after the second run: Schöffler and Vanthoor's MTM Audi R8 LMS landed in second place behind the Lamborghini, securing important points for closing the gap on the lead in the overall rankings. Solieri drove his Porsche 911 to third place, consolidating his leadership position in the overall rankings. He remains 12 points ahead of Del Castello. Thanks to his fast and furious drive, Thomas Schöffler, and with him the MTM team, have now worked their way up to third place - with one fewer race than the competition and a sense of optimism going into the fifth meeting, to be held in Portimao in Portugal on 20 and 21 July.
