The one-year-old official track record for the Masaryk Circuit remained unchanged after this weekend's Masaryk Racing Days but even so, Austrian driver Ingo Gerst comes away from Brno with a new record chalked up on the scoreboards. In his fastest qualifying lap he clocked up an average speed of 200.664 km per hour (124.687mph). During this official race program the magic 200 km/h barrier was broken for the first time in the history of the circuit.
Scuderia Praha. That’s the name of the winning team of the inaugural Hankook 12H Epilog Brno race at Brno Circuit. In a thrilling duel, Czechs driving a Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 managed to stay ahead of their biggest competitor – the RAM Racing team in a Mercedes SLS AMG GT3. After a grueling twelve hours of racing, the margin of victory for the winning team was a mere 142 seconds.
