Last weekend, the GR Supra GT4 and TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Germany earned its first win in the DTM Trophy at the opening Lausitzring race on Saturday. Nico Verdonck started the race from third on the grid, immediately moved into the lead and took a hard-fought lights-to-flag victory. On Sunday, the Belgian aimed for another podium finish, but had to retire the #90 car after 12 laps following a contact with another competitor.
Nico’s Dutch team-mate Stéphane Kox also underlined her improving form. The 27-year-old finished 11th in Saturday’s race in the second Ring Racing-entered GR Supra GT4. On Sunday, Stéphane scored her first top 10 result of the season by finishing eighth and thus collected her first championship points.
British GT Championship
