Leading the standings at the Nürburgring: After Audi won the Nürburgring 24 Hours for the sixth time, the brand also moved to the top of the manufacturers standings. This classification includes the results of the contenders in the SP9, SPX and SP-Pro classes from the rounds of the Nürburgring Langstrecken-Serie, the qualifiers and the 24-hour race. After four rounds, Audi leads with 103 points, followed by Porsche (100 points), Mercedes-AMG and BMW (98 points each), Lamborghini (58 points) and four other manufacturers.

Three victories in Norway: At the second round of the Norwegian Racing SM series, Wiggo Dalmo was once again unbeatable. As at the season opener, the Norwegian Audi customer won his class in all three races, this time on the Sokndal circuit 100 kilometers south of the port city of Stavanger. This puts Dalmo 39 points ahead of Dodge Viper driver Jarl Nilsen in his class after the first third of the season.
