By Tarek Ramchani The ADAC GT Masters is at the Eurospeedway Lausitzring for the sixth meeting of the season. As usual six Audi R8 LMS ultra have been entered with some good performances in the qualifying sessions today.
In the first qualifying session, championship title contenders Christopher Mies and René Rast, ended in a very strong second place. The two Audi youngsters are sharing the #27 Audi R8 LMS ultra from Prosperia C.Abt Racing. Two more Audis were within the top 10. The #28 R8 LMS ultra from Prosperia C.Abt Racing driven by Christer Jöns and Markus Winkelhock was eighth, whilst the #1 MS Racing entry of Sebastian Asch and Florian Stoll was ninth fastest. The remaining three cars were respectively in eleventh with #26 of Rahel Frey and Christopher Haase (Prosperica C.Abt Racing), nineteenth with #16 Audi of Philip Geipel and Frank Schmickler (THE BOSS YACO RACING) and twenty-first with #100 R8 of Daniel Dobitsch and Aditya Patel (MS Racing).
Later in the second qualifying session the Audi squad was not as strong as in the first one. Christer Jöns and Markus Winkelhock, with the #28 Audi R8 LMS ultra, were the best Audi drivers in sixth place. Rahel Frey and Christopher Haase were eighth, driving the #26 Audi. All four of the other Audi R8 LMS ultra cars were outside of the top 10. Sebastian Asch and Florian Stoll were fifteenth with #1 Audi.
