Jamec Pem Racing will be returning to the 2015 Australian GT Championship with an Audi R8 LMS ultra. Steve McLaughlan will again be entering his Melbourne Performance Centre run Audi this season, aiming to win the GT class title.

The team will be taking part in the 2015 Bathurst 12 Hour in February. McLaughlan's 2015 Australian GT Championship participation was confirmed in the announcement of their driver line-up for the Bathurst 12 hour.

Steve McLaughlan debuted his Audi R8 LMS at the end of 2013 and upgraded it to the 2013 aerodynamic specification during 2014.

The full driver line-up for the #75 Audi R8 LMS ultra in the Australian GT Championship is yet to be announced. Steve McLaughlan has the option to compete by himself or with a pro co-driver.

The season will get underway at Adelaide with the Clipsal 500 on 28 February.
