I.S.R Racing may be known for competing in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series, but this would not be I.S.R. Racing’s first venture with Audi race cars.

During the mid-90s the team competed with Audi in the Czech and FIA Central European Super Touring Car Championships. They won the 1996 Czech title with an Audi 80 Competition and followed that up by winning the 1997 and 1998 Central European titles with an Audi A4 quattro STW, all driven by Josef Venc.
