Chin: ANSA Motorsports Audi R8 LMS and Audi A4 DTM at Chin Motorsports Miami track day

By Johan Laubscher

Two Audi race cars are at Homestead-Miami Speedway this weekend. Chin Motorsports is hosting one of its track days and two of ANSA Motorsports' Audi race cars are on site.

Eric Johnson, who owns both of the Audis, was taking part his weekend. His long list of cars includes these two Audi race cars. His Audi A4 DTM is a R12 plus from 2006, which was driven by Mattias Ekström and it was also one of the BRT cars used in the Czech Republic a few years later. His Audi R8 LMS is the ex-MTM Motorsport car that won the 2013 Italian Superstars GT Sprint title with Thomas Schöffler. Johnson has been seen behind the wheel of both Audis in historic racing events (HSR and SVRA) and also the FARA series.

It is a fairy quiet weekend for circuit racing, with it being the first weekend of 2015, so it is very nice to see two thoroughbred Audi race cars out on track.
