By Tarek Ramchani

The beautiful Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will play host to the fourth race of the 2015 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship. The California event will be the third round for the Audi teams as the GT Daytona class did not take part in the Long Beach race last time out.

The Audi Sport customer racing squad will be represented by two R8 LMS cars coming from two teams.

Paul Miller Racing will enter their #48 Audi R8 LMS. The car will be shared by full season competitors Dion von Moltke and Audi GT factory driver Christopher Haase. The two drivers are fourth in the GT Daytona overall standing with 54 points each. At Laguna Seca Paul Miller Racing will be eager to fight for class victory.

The second Audi entry is from Flying Lizard Motorsports. The California based team dominated last weekend's Pirelli World Challenge round at Barber Motorsport Park with their McLarens,.They will field an R8 LMS with a strong driver-line up. Guy Cosmo and Patrick Bryne will be behind the wheel of the #45 Audi.

At Laguna Seca the Audi entries will be challenged once again by strong rivals representing Aston Martin, BMW, Dodge, Ferrari and Porsche.
