TUSC & Pirelli WC: GMG Racing hard at work preparing for 2014

By Johan Laubscher

GMG Racing is hard at work preparing for what will be a very busy 2014 season.

The team fielded a number of Audi R8 LMS cars in the Pirelli World Challenge this year and came very close to winning the drivers’ title with James Sofronas.

Thus far it is known that GMG Racing will be returning to the Pirelli World Challenge in 2014 and that they will be fielding a single Audi R8 LMS in the new TUDOR United SportsCar Championship GT Daytona class.

The 2014 Pirelli World Challenge will be allowing full GT3 specification machinery and thus GMG Racing are busy upgrading some of their R8 LMS cars to the R8 LMS ultra specification.

The team is also busy preparing their Audi R8 LMS (GTD spec) for the TUSC season opener, the Daytona 24 Hours in January. Their white R8 LMS is the same chassis, now owned by Alex Welch, which won the 2013 Daytona 24 Hours with Alex Job Racing earlier this year.

It is great to see so many new developments happening at GMG Racing and the excitement continues to build for the 2014 season, which will be another great year for the team.
