Eset V4 Cup: Gregor Zsigo wins driver title in GT3 sprint classification. The Eset V4 Cup season ended last weekend with three races on the Hungaroring (HUN). In an exciting finale, Gregor Zsigo (HUN) secured the driver’s title in the GT3 sprint classification in his BMW M6 GT3 entered by Trevor Racing. Fifth place in his class was enough for him in the last two races. In the last endurance race of the season, Zsigo and his teammate Štefan Rosina (SVK) finished fourth in the class, which meant second place in the overall standings. Ferenc Ficza (HUN) with the BMW M4 GT4 from Trevor Racing took second place in the overall GT4 classification in the endurance and sprint standings.
GT4 European Series: Class win for the BMW M4 GT4. On the penultimate race weekend of the GT4 European Series in Spa-Francorchamps (BEL), the Borusan Otomotiv team celebrated a class win in the Pro-Am category with the BMW M4 GT4. In the second race on Saturday, Cem Bölükbasi and Yagiz Gedik (both TUR) finished fifth overall and thus first in their class. Joakim Walde and Alfred Nilsson (both SWE) also made it onto the podium in the Pro-Am category in third place in their BMW M4 GT4 from Lestrup Racing. In the first race, Bölükbasi and Gedik were fourth in their class and were the best-placed BMW M Customer Racing Team. BTCC: Turkington wins and regains overall lead. On the penultimate race weekend of the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), Colin Turkington (GBR) impressively underpinned his ambitions to defend his title. In Snetterton (GBR) he won the first two of three races in his BMW 330i M Sport and in the third race he fought his way up from tenth on the grid to third. Thanks to these strong points, Turkington regained the lead in the drivers’ championship before the season finale at Brands Hatch (GBR). His team-mate Tom Oliphant (GBR) missed the top 10 in all three races. Nevertheless, Team BMW is still in first place in the team and manufacturers’ championship.
