Success in the USA
Audi Sport customer racing, USA, began their long-anticipated US debut in 2012 with the Audi R8 LMS. In a few short years, the US market has seen much success, winning the 2013 Rolex 24 At Daytona and the 2014 Petit Le Mans. Since 2014, USA race teams have consistently finished in the top three for driver and championship points. There is now a strong internal infrastructure with technical and parts support available throughout the season. Backed by support from Audi Sport customer racing, two new teams, Magnus Racing and Stevenson Motorsports, will field three Audi R8 LMS race cars in the 2016 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
The new Audi R8 LMS features even more race car technology and is following in the footsteps of its successful predecessor. With two real racing tests, including one victory in two of the world’s most challenging 24 hour race events, the Audi R8 LMS has proven to be a reliable and robust race car. A feature that is key to winning endurance races.
