BRCC: PK Carsport switches to the Audi R8 LMS ultra

By Tarek Ramchani

A great news coming from Belgium, PK Carsport the only Audi team in the BRCC series has switched to the Audi R8 LMS ultra.

The Belgian Audi Sport customer racing team has competed in BRCC with an older specification Audi R8 LMS in 2013 winning the endurance championship and in the opening rounds this year.

PK Carsport was among the fastest and strongest in the field this season however they were not able to target overall victories in a demanding field with teams using new generation GT3 race cars.

Race debut for PK Carsport with the Audi R8 LMS ultra is this weekend at Spa-Francorchamps. The BRCC series supporting the Total 24 Hours of Spa.

The #1 Audi R8 LMS will be driven by the team's regulars Anthonly Kumpen, Bert Longin and Frank Belien.

And as was the case with the old Audi R8 LMS, PK Carsport ultra livery has been made by our friends at Berzerkdesign and the car looks really great.
