Default Audi R8 race car ready for North American series in January 2012



Audi Sport has announced that the development of its next customer sport race car has been completed and will be delivered to the first customers by January 2012.

The new Audi R8 Grand-Am is based on the successful R8 LMS that has scored more than 110 victories and 13 titles. From this GT3 race car quattro GmbH developed a vehicle for the Grand Touring class of the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series in the United States and subjected it to final testing at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida.

After track tests in Europe, the R8 Grand-Am, which features significant modifications compared with the GT3 race car, underwent its final test at Daytona. On two test days, driver Frank Stippler completed about 1,000 kilometres in the visually conspicuous test car, which sported a stars-and-stripes design. The Daytona circuit with its banked turns served to prepare for the Daytona 24 Hours during which private racing teams will compete with the R8 Grand-Am on Jan. 28 29, 2012.
