Rain, track conditions changing, controversial, penalties, accidents, and strategy. The 24 Hours of Spa had everything that you could expect a spectator, and only one winner, the BMW M6 GT3 #99 of Rowe Racing-driven by Alex Sims, Philipp Eng and Maxime Martin. A victory that was forged in a hard-fought battle in which there was not a minute of respite, and that he crowned the new BMW M6 GT3 as the king of the Árdenas, picking up his first great triumph and so giving the perfect witness to the BMW Z4 GT3 that a year before he won the hand of Marc VDS Racing.
however, the 24 Hours of Spa enjoyed a role split between teams, cars and drivers very different. The Mercedes-AMG GT3 were the epicenter of a controversy for violating the provision that a technical approval, which it cost them to go from step on the first six places of the grill to suffer a Stop and Go five minutes, have a race against and be marked by their angry opponents. All in all, the Mercedes of AKKA ASP Vautier, Rosenqvist and Van der Zande snuck on the podium ahead of one of the Audi R8 LMS of Team WRT.
The iconic test also spoke Spanish, since the Bentley Continental GT3 #8 came to dream of victory and although in the end it was without it, and its pilots without stepping on the podium, it is impossible not to recognize the proper role of Soulet, Reip and, in the last instance of Andy Soucek. More they had to suffer Dani Juncadella, Miguel Toril, Albert Costa and Lucas Ordonez, although all of them left the pavilion high. For everything and for hundreds of reasons that we let ourselves be by the way we invite you to see the best moments of the 24 Hours of Spa 2016.
