Less than a week after his 24 Hours of Spa debut, Benjamin Goethe was back behind the wheel of the Audi R8 GT3 LMS last weekend. The 17-year old ROFGO Junior driver was called up by Team WRT alongside 24 Hours of Spa podium-finisher Frédéric Vervisch (BE) to replace the usual driver pairing for the penultimate round of the ADAC GT Masters season at the Lausitzring.
Ferdinand Habsburg should have been having a much-deserved weekend off this Saturday and Sunday but, thanks to an impressive DTM season in the Audi RS5 DTM, including a pole position, two front row starts, four second row starts and a podium, Audi Sport has called him up to represent the brand in the biggest GT3 race in the world, the 24 Hours of Spa.
Ferdinand Habsburg’s fourth weekend in the WRT Audi Sport-run Audi RS5 DTM started on a high when he qualified on the second row for race one to match his best ever starting position of fourth place. He went on to take eighth and seventh place in the two races and praised his team for making “huge strides”.
