17 September 2017 Robin Frijns and Stuart Leonard 2017 Sprint Cup champions

A frenetic final race of the 2017 Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup saw #17 Team WRT Audi duo Robin Frijns and Stuart Leonard take the win and the title. Franck Perera-Maxi Buhk (#84 Mercedes-AMG Team HTP Motorsport car) and Dries Vanthoor-Marcel Fässler (#5 Belgian Audi Club Team WRT R8) both had their hands on the title for a couple of laps, but a mechanical failure and a drive-through penalty ruined their chances. Belgian Audi Club Team WRT takes the Sprint Team title.

The Pro-Am Cup goes to Alexander Mattschull and Daniel Keilwitz (#333 Rinaldi Racing Ferrari), after a fourth win of the season with Rinaldi Racing taking the Pro-Am teams’ title. More to follow.
