Time Attack: GMG Racing and James Sofronas Audi R8 LMS ultra at Willow Springs

By Johan Laubscher

The Global Time Attack hosted a GTA Pro Am round at Willow Springs International Raceway this weekend. The Targa Trophy Super Track Series, which was presented by GMG Racing on this occasion, was also taking part alongside the Global Time Attack.

GMG Racing took part in the event with one of their Audi R8 LMS ultra cars. James Sofronas was on hand to pilot his silver and black Audi R8 LMS ultra in which he also took part in the 2014 Pirelli World Challenge. The car was entered in the exhibition class.

The #14 Audi R8 LMS ultra was seen in the full 2013 specification with the aggressive 2013 rear diffuser. The car was thus in the full 2013 R8 LMS ultra aerodynamic specification, except for the rear view mirrors, which were of the older curved variety.
