Christopher Mees is in Batherst, Australia for the weekend
Mies, who won her second ADAC GT Masters title with Ricardo Feller in Nurburgin in early November, was one of the first international drivers to compete in Australia since the COVID-19 epidemic began in March 2020. About a year and a half later, the country recently reopened its borders to foreigners.
“Fatherst has always been special and I look forward to coming back after many years without being in Australia,” Mees said. “Australia has always been my favorite country and a joy in racing. I love the Australian racing culture,” said Mies, who has already won the Bathurst 12 Hours twice in the GT3 car.
At GTWC Australia Race, Mies will share the Audi R8 LMS with Yasser Shah. The GT3 car, like the Audi RS3 LMS DCR, is used by the factory support team Melbourne Performance Center (MBC).
“It’s been a long time since I last drove a DCR car. We only got the first generation a few years ago. [des Audi RS3 LMS TCR] Have created. Jumping back and forth between two different types of racing cars is something I have not done in years, so do not judge me by stopping everyone in the first session, “said Mice, who dampened expectations, especially in the DCR view – start.
“Of course, my main goal is to help Yasser [GT]- Win the championship, I will do it, “outlined the purpose for the weekend. Mice said.” From all I have heard, he is a great guy and still a great racer. I can not wait to do this for him and the MPC. I really missed the guys and look forward to continuing our story together.
