In the second round, #jeffreylee and #alessiopicariello took third place for J-Fly by Absolute #racing in the pouring rain in Suzuka. The best #audi driver combination on the table is Marchy Lee/Shaun Thong. The #racing drivers from Hong Kong sit in second place at the halfway stage of the season, eight points behind the leaders.

Podium place in the South of France: In the Blancpain GT Series #endurance Cup in Le Castellet, Antonio García, Nico Müller and René Rast celebrated a podium result. The driver trio from #audi Sport Team WRT started from tenth and during the 1,000-kilometer race they worked their way up to third. The third round of the series counted as a dress-rehearsal for the Spa 24 Hours on the last weekend of July.

Trophies in the Eifel: In the third round of the #vlnendurancechampionship, the Montaplast by Land-Motorsport team achieved a podium result. The German #michaelammermuller and his Swiss driver colleague Jeffrey Schmidt shared an #audir8lms and reached third place after four hours of #racing.

Podium in #newzealand: Simon Evans and #generollinson took second place at the second round of the North Island #endurance Series in #newzealand. The local driver duo, who also won the opening event in May, shared an #audir8lms from the SMEG #racing team.

Racers as special guests: The #audir8lms from the Yaco #racing team was present at the 3rd #audi Club International Meeting. 285 participants from five countries had arrived there with 170 models. At the event in the ADAC driving safety center in Nohra, Thuringia, the GT3 sports car was one of many attractions from the rich company history. Race driver Philip Geipel, who competes in the ADAC GT Masters series with the #audir8lms together with #audi Sport driver Rachel Frey, drove a few demonstration laps and delighted the many fans of the brand with autographs and interviews. 

Win on the Canary Islands: Luis Monzón Artiles took the overall victory in an #audir8lms ultra from Auto-Laca Competición at the Subida de Haría mountain race in Lanzarote.
