The brand new Audi R8 GRAND-AM debuted in the Rolex Series at the 24 Hours of Daytona this year . The car is way different from the original R16 FIA GT3 specification, in order to meet the Grand-Am rules. Three Audi teams acquired the car, APR Motorsport, Oryx Racing and later Limitless Racing. From these three teams it was only APR Motorsport who competed in the full Rolex Series season. In many races APR had great pace but bad luck always hit the team. The bad luck persisted until the season finale at Lime Rock Park, where the Alabama based team was able to achieve a sensational second place in the demanding GT class. It was a great end for a mixed season.

As we wait for the 2013 season and following the amazing performance from the R8 GRAND-AM at the Rolex Series tests at Daytona last month, here is the very best of from APR Motorsport season in photos.
