SCCA National Runoffs: Three Audis on the entry list - two Audi R8 GRAND-AM

By Johan Laubscher

The SCCA National Championship Runoffs is one of the most prestigious North American motorsport events, and the annual highlight for the SCCA Regional and National racing series’. Three Audis will be competing in the classes this year.

The 2013 SCCA National Runoffs entry list was released during this week. The first Audi includes the Audi A4 B7 of Joel Weinberger, entered by the Continental Racing team. Weinberger is entered in the STU class, a class which he won at the Runoffs in 2011. His Audi A4 is an ex-Stasis SCCA World Challenge Touring Car.

Two Audi R8 GRAND-AM cars conclude the Audis on the 2013 entry list. The first R8 GRAND-AM is from Limitless Racing. Dr Jason Lee has been competing in the 2013 SCCA U.S. Majors and he has qualified to compete in the SCCA GT2 class (unrelated to ACO GT2/GTE).

The final Audi is the Audi R8 GRAND-AM from Fall-Line Motorsports. Mark Boden will be piloting the blue Fall-Line Audi in the Touring 1 class.
