Team Nova Driver arrived at Barcelona coming off a fairly successful season, taking four podiums and a victory. A noted change was the introduction of a second team car, driven by Fabian Hamprecht and Fernando Monje.

Both cars registered good performances through testing on Thursday and free practice on Friday before qualifying 5th and 7th on Saturday.

Campanico who qualified fifth on the grid in GT3 and eighth overall, had a tough start to the race, falling back a few places but managed to claw his way back up to fourth place before the pit-stop and driver change.

Patel then took over and put in some very quick early laps to pass the team's other car to move up. From there on, the youngster pushed hard to reel in the leading car but since time was short, maintained a steady pace to finish the race in second place.

Aditya said, "It was a great result, the track was fantastic and my Audi R8 ran beautifully throughout. We are very happy to take our 5th podium for the season and hope to do even better in tomorrow's race. Many thanks to the support from Audi India, Amante and JK Racing who were even present here to cheer me on."
