In contrast, Markus Winkelhock and Niki Mayr-Melnhof were plagued by bad
luck. Two drive through penalties put paid to a successful main race.
“Despite the generally difficult weekend I’m absolutely delighted for
Nicolaj and Markus. Both can be more than satisfied with this first GT
races. We were able to lap as fast as the leading cars even though we
trailing behind with the Audi R8 LMS #6 because of the drive through
penalties. For us it was very important to see that we are very
competitive. Both Audis ran exceptionally well,” summarized Team Manager
