Sincere congratulations on winning the Spa 24 Hours. What makes this most recent success a special one?
Today, on clinching our third victory at Spa, we made a dream come true. We can’t expect more than that. And in such a competitive environment, victory is an exceptional feat. Together with the success of Audi Sport in the Le Mans 24 Hours, AUDI AG made motorsport history this year – with exclusive top-end technology at Le Mans and with production-based technology in GT3 racing that is available for purchasing.
What factors have led to this success?
We again saw that the Audi R8 LMS ultra was the most reliable car. All customers finished without any problems. There was only one retirement – and that was due to an accident. Reliability is becoming an increasingly important criterion for our buyers to opt for the four rings. We also take service very seriously and are set on providing optimum support to our customers. The customers greatly appreciate this.
In terms of the sport, what wishes remain after this string of success?
We can definitely think of a few more goals. We aim to sustain our status as a successful brand in the future because the competition is fierce. Furthermore, the finale of the Blancpain Endurance Series, which we are now leading, is coming up in August. In addition, there are a number of Audi drivers continuing to battle for further titles around the world. And, last but not least, there’s a special event in November. In Macau, we’ve celebrated three victories to date. Naturally, we’d like to decide the Macau GT Cup in our favor again this year.
