TUSC: Double duty for Compass360 Racing with Audi at Lime Rock

By Tarek Ramchani

The Compass360 Racing team will have a very busy racing weekend at Lime Rock. The Canadian squad will be competing in two different series with two different Audi race cars.

Compass360 Racing will debut with their Audi R8 LMS in the demanding TUDOR United SportsCar Championship at Lime Rock Park. The #76 car will be driven by Ray Mason and Pierre Kleinubing competing in GT Daytona (GTD) class. The two drivers are eager to perform well in the 2h45 endurance event. Compass360 Racing will join another Audi team in the series, Paul Miller Racing.

The Lime Rock TUSC round will feature only GT Daytona and Prototype Challenge classes.

Compass360 Racing will have a presence in the other IMSA run series. Two Audi S3 quattros will compete in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. The #74 Audi will be shared by  Jim McGuire and Nico Rondet. Their team-mates Paul Holton and Kyle Gimple will be behind the wheel of the sister #75 S3.

Last time out in Canada, the Compass360 Racing performed very well in practice and qualifying sessions but had an unlucky race. At Lime Rock the team will try to battle for the top spots in the shortest track of the CTSCC calendar.
