Following their win at Silverstone two weeks ago, they overcame the challenge from the improving Audi R18 e-tron quattros to take the top place on the podium.

Hemel Hempstead driver Davidson and his team-mates – together with Toyota – sit comfortably at the top of the table as they now prepare for the highlight of the championship at Le Mans.
