IMSA CTSCC: Learning curve for Compass360 Racing Audi S3s at Sebring during practice and qualifying

By Johan Laubscher

Compass360 Racing is debuting its two brand new Audi S3 race cars in the ST class of the Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge this weekend. It is round two of the series at Sebring Raceway.

The team's stunning Audi S3s are being driven by the pairings of Jim McGuire and Nico Rondet (#74 Audi), and Paul Holton and Kyle Gimple (#75 Audi).

Proceedings got underway with two practice sessions on Wednesday and qualifying on Thursday. It was a learning curve for the C360R Audi squad. The new cars peaked in the lower half of the top twenty in class during practice and qualifying saw the #75 Audi S3 taking twenty-first on the class grid, followed by their teammates in twenty-ninth.

The 150-minute race will be taking place on Friday afternoon. We wish the best of luck to Compass360 Racing and its drivers.
