The Audi R8 LMS and ultra cars have been very successful in Australia in recent years and another new entrant was announced on Monday.
Fitzgerald Racing Services has acquired an Audi R8 LMS ultra and will be competing in the Australian GT Championship.
The team will be debuting the car with Peter Fitzgerald and Michael Almond at the finale of the 2014 Australian GT Championship, which will be taking place at Highlands Motorsport Park in New Zealand from 8-9 November.
2015 will see Fitzgerald Racing Services kicking off the season at the Bathurst 12 Hour, followed by contesting the Australian GT Championship. Peter Fitzgerald and Michael Almond will be piloting the blue liveried Audi R8 LMS ultra at Bathurst, along with a third yet to be confirmed driver, who could possibly be an Audi factory driver.
