Mercedes-AMG with strong line-up for Spa 24-hour race
Affalterbach. In the packed race calendar for the second half of the year, another endurance racing highlight is imminent for Mercedes-AMG Motorsport: the 24-hour race at Spa-Francorchamps (22-25 October). With ten Mercedes-AMG GT3s, the performance and sports car brand from Affalterbach has, according to the current situation, the largest contingent of all the manufacturers that will be competing in the 72nd running of the classic. One car each for AKKA ASP Team and Haupt Racing Team will be racing with extended works support and ranks among the favourites at the seven kilometres long track in the Belgian Ardennes.
After three podium results from the past four years, Mercedes-AMG Motorsport is again aiming high for the 72nd running of the Total 24 Hours of Spa: with a huge contingent at a total of ten Mercedes-AMG GT3s including two Performance cars, a top result is the goal at the rollercoaster circuit in the Ardennes.
The drivers of these two cars have been among the top class in GT endurance racing for years. The #4 Mercedes-AMG GT3 run by Mercedes-AMG Team HRT will have the third-placed duo from last year’s race at Spa, Maro Engel and Luca Stolz (both GER) as well as the runner-up from the 2017 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup, Vincent Abril (FRA) as its drivers.
