Blancpain Sprint – Vanthoor and Frijns to conclude in Misano?

Since the start of the 2015 season, Laurens Vanthoor and Robin Frijns dominate the Sprint portion of the Blancpain GT series. The duo of the No. 8 Audi R1 LMS ultra from Team WRT, despite a missed start at Nogaro in the Gers, put together top performances, with two doubles at Brands Hatch and Zolder, before signing a third success in main race in the Algarve in Portugal in early September.

Enough to present yourself at the sixth meeting of the year at Misano in Italy with the opportunity to take the crown. “I think we only need 7 points to achieve this goal. It's doable and it would allow us to get rid of the little pressure you always have when you are at the top of the ranking, says Vanthoor. We are in a good position, because it is up to our rivals to chase us away, while we can concentrate on our work and avoid mistakes. »

The Dutchman Robin Frijns, arrived in GT this year, after the first part of his career in car, could continue his good habits, namely winning the title in a category in his first season. The Misano event will also be special with the qualifying race held at the start of the evening.

“We were there twice for testing in the spring, adds Vanthoor. We know the track and we have data, even if a new surface has been laid since then, and that can change a lot of things. I like the idea of ​​a night race, it's something different, and which brings additional pleasure. »
