Audi R8 LMS defends title at Bathurst
- Christopher Mies/Darryl O’Young celebrate second victory in Australia
- Christer Jöns and Phoenix Racing win on making their Bathurst debut
- Performances by Mark Eddy/Craig Lowndes/Warren Luff went unrewarded
The Audi R8 LMS remains “King of the Mountain” at Bathurst. On Australia’s most challenging race track the successful GT3 sports car from Audi Sport customer racing defended its title at the 12-hour race. Christer Jöns (D), Christopher Mies (D) and Darryl O’Young (HK) won the endurance classic at Mount Panorama in extremely difficult conditions. Rain, fog, several lead changes and numerous safety car periods repeatedly interrupted the young trio’s race rhythm. But in the end they won with a 1m 13s advantage.
