The TUDOR United SportsCar Championship is heading to the beautiful Road America circuit. Two Audi R8 LMS cars will enter the Elkhart Lake event from Paul Miller Racing and Compass360 Racing.
The Audi Sport customer racing squad had a frustrating round las time out at Lime Rock Park. The Paul Miller Racing was strongly leading the GT Daytona field but a contact forced their Audi R8 LMS to retire from the race. Compass360 Racing debuted with the Audi R8 LMS in that event showing some positive performances.
At Road America the Paul Miller Racing team will be aiming high. Drivers Dion von Moltke and Christopher are eager to challenge for the win and take strong points. They are leading the GT Daytona standing with 171 points each ahead of Aston Martin's Christina Nielsen with 166 points.
Compass360 Racing will compete with the Audi GT racer for the second time in the premier North American sportscar series. Their #76 R8 LMS will be shared by Ray Mason and Pierre Kleinubing.
As always the Audis will be challenged by some strong competitors for GT Daytona honors. The two R8 LMS cars will have to fight against nine GTD entries representing Aston Martin, BMW, Dodge and Porsche.
