TUSC: On board with the Audi R8 LMS at Daytona

By Tarek Ramchani

Florida played host to the pre-season official tests of the newly formed TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.
A total of four days of testing were held at Sebring International Raceway and Daytona International Speedway. The Audi R8 LMS cars were there and performed very well in all four days within the GT Daytona class.

Sebring Day 1 test report is here.
Sebring Day 2 test report is here.
Daytona Day 1 test report is here.
Daytona Day 2 test report is here.

Below is a very nice video from our friend Dion von Moltke driving the Audi R8 LMS from Flying Lizard Motorsports at Daytona. Dion von Moltke along with Oliver Jarvis, Filipe Albuquerque and Edoardo Mortara already won the Rolex 24 GT class this year with the Audi R8 GRAND-AM. Next year the Audi squad will target another victory to take the class honors at Daytona.
