Blancpain GT Series: Garage 59 McLaren takes win

April 24th 2016 - BMW
An epic fight between Shane Van Gisbergen in the #58 Garage 59 McLaren and Maxi Buhk in the #84 HTP Motorsport Mercedes-AMG decided the Monza round of the 2016 Blancpain GT Series. The two were all over each other during the final half an hour of the race, but Van Gisbergen managed to hold Buhk behind and cross the line with a mere three tenths of a second in hand. Third in the three-hour race went to the #8 Bentley Team M-Sport Continental of Soucek, Reip and Soulet. The Pro-Am Cup was dominated by the #11 Kessel Racing Ferrari, which finished in fifth overall as well. In the Am Cup, the #87 AKKA ASP Mercedes-AMG resisted the Italian Ferrari-Lamborghini opposition to take the win after a faultless race.
