it was a good race.

Vita4one 458 was very quick.

Ortelli did a great opening stint!
Albuquerque did a great final stint! to get 2nd over the porsche!
Bert Longin didn't do a great stint. wasn't that quick

Andrea Piccini wasn't happy after the F430 crash he saw a safety car board and told the team so they brought him......the safety car never came out!

Next stop Spa 24

stephane retal has already ruined this race. There is a limit on the stint between pitstops of 65 minutes which is the stupidest rule ever.What should have been a good races has been ruined by retal. like gt1 has been ruined by retal twice.

This weekend the series heads to Magny-Cours for night race on saturday.



Enrty list

Points

after winning the spa 24hours Greg Franchi(33) leads the standings for WRT by 14.5 from his teams mates Bert Longin, Stéphane Ortelli and Filipe Albuquerque(32) Greg Franchi is back with regular team mates Marcel Fässler and Andrea Piccini who ran in the 98 Audi at spa. 3rd in the championship is Mattias Ekström and Timo Scheider on 46.5 but are not this race. 4th is Frank Kechele from #1 Vita4one car and 5th is #9 Monza winning AutOrlando Sport. Also mclaren are there with 2 cars and also the new Nissan GTR GT3 run by JR motorsports.

1st Greg Franchi 64.5
2nd Bert Longin 50
Stéphane Ortelli 50
Filipe Albuquerque 50
3rd Mattias Ekström 46.5
Timo Scheider 46.5
4th Frank Kechele 45
5th Raffaele Giammaria 40
Gianluca Roda 40
Paolo Ruberti 40

Live on one either GT1 site or the Blancpain site. and also live on motors.

Friday August 26th

17:30 - 19:00 1:30 Blancpain Endurance Series - Free Practice

Saturday August 27th
09:00 - 10:00 1:00 Blancpain Endurance Series - Pre-Qualifying

12:00 - 13:00 1:00 Blancpain Endurance Series - Qualifying

18:15 - 21:15 3:00 Blancpain Endurance Series - Race

I think Audi should of field a car for Mattias Ekström and Timo Scheider they have a shot at the title only 20 behind Greg Franchi and they only did spa 24 race.

Its good that this race is being held at night, the night time is the right time to go motor racing.

Night racing for cars with lights good. Night racing for motogp, nascar, indycar or f1 is stupid.

racing into the evening is always great, the Saturday Group C race at Silverstone Classic was great although it made taking pictures much harder.

What amazing racing that was! such an awesome race.

first 20minutes. Battles between Ferrari 29, 32 Audi and 40 BMW was amazing!!!! affraid ortelli didn't really do get move on the ferrari once the BMW got passed then once he had problems he got the red mist and nudge the ferrari to damage his bonnet.

bas leinders stint was brilliant! got ahead and just pull away!

not great day for 32 audi but 33 audi 3rd which is great for Greg Franchi. Audi looking strong for the title if 33 fails and 32 wins they might the title not sure on points bring it on

next stop silverstone!!! who is going? i am!

These cars are the same as the ones that raced in FIA GT3 earlier this year, there was a car park of broken ones in the paddock - one expensive mess.

well what weekend! it was brilliant.

40 MarcVDS team was brilliant! they clearly know how to drive the BMW Z4 fast! BUT 32 Audi Filipe Albuquerque and Stephane Ortelli what mega stints!!! Ortelli caught the 29 ferrari and passed him on the last lap. Gerg Franchi brilliant winning the 2011 Blancpain Endurance Series Pro Cup Champion. And Andrea Piccini caught both Hexis AMR and passed both of them brilliant! and Christopher Mies did a soild job.

not a good day for McLaren. 60 car, Klaas Hummel had quite weird off. just ran wide and went off spooked maybe? got back on track. Alvaro Parente in 59 car had major problems. stop on track then got back going again then stop in the enterance to the pit lane and then got going into the garage.

the new Nissan GTR GT-3 looks awesome sounds awesome shamed it retired westbrook was brilliant in his stint.

i will watch the race when its online. awesome weekend!

GO WRT and Gerg Franchi belguiumflag and Audi germanyflag

I watched most of the race on Motors, the racing was pretty good. The variation in car is staggering, that has be one of the most varied GT fields. I was suprised by the BMW 6-Series (Alpina), that doesn't strike me as a car that can rival a Ferrari 458 or Audi R8. It had some serious horsepower down the straights.

That BMW Z4 was on rails, with that handling no wonder it won. The same car won the FIA GT3 race at Silverstone in April. A nimble wheelbase with a V8 is a good combination.
