Class victory for Audi in Australia

The Australian privateer team GT Motorsport instantly won the amateur classification of the Bathurst 12 Hour on fielding the new Audi R8 LMS for the first time. Meanwhile, Phoenix Racing (Germany), like last year, was battling for a podium result, but Alex Davison/Laurens Vanthoor/Markus Winkelhock (AUS/B/D) remained without a real chance at Mount Panorama.
