Audi Sport customer racing has unveiled South African “Zebra” liveries for the pair of factory backed Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evos that will compete in this weekend’s Kyalami 9 Hour.

Both the Audi Sport Team Land and WRT entries will again carry special event-themed designs, continuing the tradition that began in February’s Intercontinental GT Challenge season-opening Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.

While already eliminated from winning the IGTC manufacturers’ title, Frederic Vervisch in the No. 25 WRT entry remains in the hunt for the drivers’ championship, with the Belgian just six points from the lead.

Vervisch is joined by Dries Vanthoor and local hero Kelvin van der Linde this weekend, with Christopher Haase, Christopher Mies and Markus Winkelhock in the Land entry.

Audi Sport will be racing on three continents this weekend between the Ad Diriyah ePrix in Saudi Arabia, DTM x Super GT Dream Race at Fuji Speedway and IGTC season finale in South Africa.
