RACE PREVIEW
> Audi Sport Team WRT aims to repeat its 2016 victory in Macau

World’s best campaigners and teams to battle for FIA GT World Cup 2 Audi R8 LMS entrusted to Robin Frijns and Nico Müller to defend last year victory Challenging 6.2-kilometer street circuit leaves no room for mistakes   An ambitious mission for the title defender: Following a successful racing season with a 1-2 finish in both the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup Teams' and Drivers' rankings, Audi Sport Team WRT is now aiming to win the most prestigious GT3 sprint competition of the year in Macau as well. The Audi R8 LMS has clinched four victories there since 2011, most recently in the drivers’ and manufacturers’ classifications a year ago with WRT and Laurens Vanthoor.   A challenging circuit awaits the drivers there from November 16 to 19: a length of 6.2 kilometers, a track width of just seven meters in some sections amidst street canyons, 24 bends including a hairpin turn and guard barriers directly lining the edge of the track with no run-off areas. Solid track knowledge, high-torque engines, aerodynamic efficiency of the race cars and good traction are the prerequisites for success. In the fastest turn, Mandarin Bend, the race cars reach a speed of 260 km/h.   On the Macau grid for Audi Sport, the Team WRT will rely on 26-year-old Dutchman Robin Frijns who has previously clinched two championship titles in the Audi R8 LMS for the Belgian outfit. Nico Müller will be his teammate. The 25-year-old Swiss celebrated victory in the Nürburgring 24 Hours with Audi Sport Team WRT two years ago and is currently an Audi DTM campaigner.   “This is a strong line-up,” says Chris Reinke, Head of Audi Sport customer racing. “WRT is a top-class team and title defender for Audi Sport customer racing. Nico Müller and Robin Frijns are among the favorites.”   The two WRT campaigners and their rivals will be pitted against each other on the race weekend in Macau in two races following the practice sessions. On Saturday, November 18, a twelve-lap qualification race is scheduled. In the final round on Sunday, the drivers will be battling across 18 laps for the FIA GT World Cup.
