Champion team sets up four-car attack on Blancpain title

Friday, February 07 2014

Blancpain GT Series reigning champion, Belgian Audi Club Team WRT, will return to the 2014 championship which races at Brands Hatch on 17/18 May, with four Audi R8 LMS Ultra cars.

Belgian Audi Club Team WRT won last year's FIA GT Series, which has been renamed the Blancpain GT Series for 2014. They were also runners-up in the sister Blancpain Endurance Series, having claimed that title over the previous two seasons.

Stephane Ortelli and Laurens Vanthoor won the 2013 title with the team, which has also fielded British former DTM driver Oliver Jarvis. An announcement has yet to have been made on drivers for the season, but the squad will start as favourite for overall honours.

Belgian Audi Club Team WRT Team Principal, Vincent Vosse said: "The Blancpain GT Series is clearly among the most important GT championships in the world. We owe it to ourselves to be present in both endurance and sprint events, especially since in the past we managed to conquer both titles. We are certain that we can be among the frontrunners this year as well."

Tickets for the Blancpain Sprint Series at Brands Hatch on 17/18 May are now available from £21, with free entry for children aged 12 and under. For more information, or to book, call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
