Event: 24 Hours of Spa results and photos


In their sixth attempt at the Total 24 Hours of Spa, the Belgian BMW Sports Trophy Team Marc VDS finally took their first win on home soil.

The #46 BMW Z4 driven by Nick Catsburg, Markus Palttala and Lucas Luhr completed 536 laps, taking fastest lap for good measure, crossing the line a lap ahead of the #2 Audi Sport Team WRT’s R8 LMS in a typically eventful race in changeable weather.

Third was the #5 Audi Sport Team Phoenix R8 LMS, which claimed the last podium spot one hour from the end when the #99 Rowe Racing Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 was pushed into the box with a broken alternator.

All other candidates for the win lost time due to technical problems or completely fell by the wayside after an incident, especially during the tricky conditions of the early hours.
