Exploit for Hemroulle and Verbergt in Belgium

Belgian GT Championship: One month after the exploit in the supporting program of the 1000-kilometer race Tim Verbergt and Jean-Francois Hemroulle in the Audi R8 of Phoenix Racing were again triumphant at Spa-Francorchamps. At the fifth round of the Belgian GT Championship Verbergt started from the pole position, dropped to third, but stayed on the heels of the front runners.
