Audi in Control At Halfway After Rain Hits Sepang
- Updated: December 10, 2016
Audi Sport Team Phoenix runs 1-2 in the Motul Sepang 12 Hours, following a rain shower that has impacted the running order of the season-ending Intercontinental GT Challenge round.
Robin Frijns holds a 42-second lead over the sister No. 16 Audi R8 LMS of Markus Winkelhock, after both recently pitting for a switch to slicks, in a pair of well-timed stops for the German squad.
Both Audis were the first to switch to wet tires in the fifth hour, gaining considerable time over the then-leading Manthey Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Rs, which both ran into trouble.
Nick Tandy had two off-course excursions prior to pitting for wets in the No. 911 Porsche, while the No. 912 car of Fred Makowiecki made an unscheduled stop and short garage visit for a brake change, after reporting issues.
The stop dropped the No. 912 Porsche to sixth, now in the hands of Michael Christensen, with Patrick Pilet now running third overall, but more than 1 minute behind the leading Audis.
The No. 50 Spirit of Race Ferrari 488 GT3 of Michele Rugolo sits fourth, after being the final car to stay out on slicks during the downpour, and lost further time when Pasin Lathouras climbed behind the wheel in the treacherous conditions.
JLOC’s Lamborghini Huracan GT3 runs in fifth, after a trouble-free run for the Japanese squad so far.
