Blancpain: Two podium finishes for Møller Madsen/Pommer in Silver Cup
Nicolaj Møller Madsen and Markus Pommer clinched two second places in the Silver Cup of the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup at the home race of Phoenix Racing at the Nürburgring.

In the qualifying race, the Danish and German pairing started from position twenty-eight. They moved the #5 Audi forward up to twentieth place within the 39 laps of the race at the Nürburgring, which was enough to secure the runner-up place in the Silver Cup. In the main race, Møller Madsen/Pommer had a strong showing and finished fifteenth overall, scoring another second place in the Silver Cup.

Bad luck hit the second Phoenix Audi with Markus Winkelhock and Niki Mayr-Melnhof behind the wheel. They started from seventh place on the grid in the qualification race and the team had hopes for a top 10 finish. Then came the bad news: a drive-through penalty due to an infringement at the start. By the end of the race they finished in twenty-first position. The #6 Audi started the main race from that same position on the grid and was then spun around by a competitor early in the race. Despite fast work in the pits and strong pace, Winkelhock/Mayr-Melnhof had no chance for a good result: in the end it was position twenty-two.
