A suspense worthy of a Coupe de France football match. The small team Octane 126 AG on a Ferrari 488, unknown internationally, led ten minutes from the end of the fifth round of the Nürburgring endurance series, run over 6 hours. Unfortunately for Luca Ludwig, Bjorn Grossmann and Serliana, she crossed the finish line less than a minute before the end of the 6 hours.
With one more lap to complete, the two official Audi just behind just had to eat a little to get the double. Mattia Drudi, Christopher Mies and Kelvin van der Linde won a few tenths ahead of the quartet Mirko Bortolotti, Robin Frijns, Markus Winkelock and Christopher Haase. The Ferrari still finished on the podium, just ahead of the Porsche Manthey Racing driven in particular by Matthieu Jaminet.
Next meeting, the 24 Hours of Nurburgring on September 26 and 27.
