Herberth Motorsport won the inaugural round of the Hankook 12H Red Bull Ring on Sunday, taking its second 24H Series win of the season.

Daniel Allemann took the No. 911 Porsche 911 GT3 R to a five-lap margin over the second-placed Grasser Racing Team entry, having shared the car with Robert Renauer and Alfred Renauer for the Austrian race.

Milos Pavlovic, Christoph Lenz, Mark Ineichen and Roberto Pampanini combined in the No. 963 Grasser Lamborghini Huracan GT3 to take the runner-up position at their home track, meanwhile.

GP Extreme completed the podium with its No. 27 Renault RS01 FGT3 driven by Frederic Fatien, Jordan Grogor and Bassam Kronfli.

Both the Grasser and GP Extreme cars ran in the A6-Am category, while the winning Porsche was rated in the A6-Pro class.

Grasser’s A6-Pro Lamborghini, driven by Christian Engelhart, Rolf Ineichen and Mark Ineichen, led Saturday’s part of the race, but was forced to retire with an engine failure at the halfway point.

This came after the No. 11 Scuderia Praha Ferrari 488 GT3, which won last time out at Mugello, crashed into the barriers at Remus with brake failures, taking Jiri Pisarik, Josef Kral and Matteo Malucelli out of contention.
