First win for Vincent Abril and Maxi Buhk in the HTP Bentley Continental GT3

The drivers of the #84 Bentley Team HTP car Vincent Abril and Maxi Buhk dominated the main race of the Moscow round of the 2015 Blancpain Sprint Series. The Frenchman took the lead at the start, jumping from third to first, and never looked back. Former Blancpain Endurance Series-champion Maxi Buhk had little trouble holding on to the lead and claimed the team's first win with a Bentley. The fight for second looked to be decided in the pitlane, when Markus Winkelhock jumped both the #77 BMW Sports Trophy Team Brasil car and the #333 Rinaldi Racing Ferrari. But the #6 Phoenix Racing Audi was penalised with a drive-through after an unsafe release, which meant that Atila Abreu crossed the line in second, less than a second in front of Marco Seefried. Silver Cup was won by the #83 Bentley Team HTP of rookie Max Van Splunteren and Jules Szymkowiak, while the #70 GT Russian Team Mercedes of Christophe Bouchut and Alexey Karachev took top spot in Pro-Am.
