IMSA CTSCC: Kyle Gimple Introducing his Audi S3 race car‏ at Audi Reno Tahoe

Kyle Gimple Press Release

Reno’s Kyle Gimple is ready to show off a little bit, and he has found the perfect place to do it.

This Saturday, Gimple’s incredible Audi S3 race car, which is prepared by Compass360 Racing to compete in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge championship, will be on display at the Audi Reno/Tahoe dealership. The event is sponsored by Bayliss & Associates, Certified Public Accountants based in Carson City, and will give the public a firsthand look at the Audi S3 racer that made its competition debut in March.

The Audi Reno Tahoe dealership will provide hospitality, coffee and donuts in the morning and will serve lunch in the afternoon for dealership visitors. Bayliss & Associates is adding interest in the visit by offering two (2) three-day passes to the upcoming IMSA race at Laguna Seca (Monterey, California) in a raffle for guests who visit the dealership between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM.

The Audi S3 racecar, which made its first-ever start at Sebring International Raceway driven by Gimple last month, will be on display. The Audi S3 is an all-new car for IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge competition and features paddle shifters as well as Audi’s renown all-wheel drive system.

The Compass360 Racing team, which fields the Audi S3 for Kyle Gimple, has won championships in IMSA, World Challenge, and Canadian Tire Touring car competition, and will display its transporter at the dealership. The transporter not only travels across the country in order to get the racecar to and from each track, but it also serves as the home away from home for the drivers and crew members, with all the tools needed to support the cars through the race weekend as well as an office for engineering meetings and data evaluation.

Gimple will be on hand to sign autographs and discuss the differences between his Audi S3 race car and the Audi S3 production car as well as any other questions guests may have.

“I’m very excited about having the chance to talk to people from my own home town about this Audi that I get to race for Compass360,” said Gimple. “It is great to have the support that we have from Audi Reno Tahoe and Bayliss & Associates to make this happen. This is a great way to get ramped up for Laguna Seca. The Audi S3 has created a lot of new interest in the series from Audi fans and it will be cool to show them how the race car is similar to the street car that you can buy in the showroom.”
