Audi R8 LMS #1 (Audi Sport Team WRT), Robin Frijns
The Audi Sport customer racing teams experienced a chaotic incident in the qualification race in Macau. Robin Frijns from Audi Sport Team WRT was the only Audi driver to finish the round, in position 4, after having started from position 17. On the first race lap, a competitor had an accident which caused a chain reaction of rear-end crashes involving twelve of the 20 cars. The Audi R8 LMS driven by Frijns remained nearly undamaged in the incident and was one of only eight race cars to participate in the restart. Setting the fastest race lap on the tenth of eleven laps, the Dutchman, on making his Macau debut, proved his class once again. By contrast, the other Audi drivers were highly disappointed. The cars of Markus Pommer from Team Aust Motorsport, Lucas di Grassi and Fabian Plentz from HCB-Rutronik Racing, and Nico Müller from Audi Sport Team WRT, were no longer able to race.
