IMSA CTSCC: Improving Compass360 Racing Audi S3s in Canada

By Tarek Ramchani

The Compass360 Racing team was in Canada this weekend with its pair of Audi S3 cars. The Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (former Mosport) played host to fifth round of the 2015 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.

The #74 Audi S3 was driven by Jim McGuire and Nico Rondet. The sister #75 machine was in the hands of Paul Holton and Kyle Gimple.

Compass360 Racing worked hard on the car and the Audi S3 is starting to perform well in the demanding ST (Street Tuner) class. The car is no doubt more competitve and the gap compared to its ST rivals has been reduced. The Audi S3 was strong throughout the weekend with solid performances in practice sessions and qualifying.

Unfortunately the team had an unlucky race on Saturday. Paul Holton and Kyle Gimple ended the 2h30 endurance event in eighteenth place within the ST class. Their team-mates Jim McGuire and Nico Rondet were a position behind in ninteenth place.

Neverthless credits to the Compass360 Racing crew members and drivers, they kept pushing and never gave up. The privateer Audi team will be eager to perform well in the next CTSCC round at Lime Rock Park.
