Pirelli World Challenge: M1 Racing testing Audi R8 LMS ultra at NOLA Motorsports Park

By Johan Laubscher

M1 Racing was out testing their #23 Audi R8 LMS ultra at NOLA Motorsports Park in New Orleans this week.

The M1 Racing team joined the Audi Sport customer racing family with driver Walt Bowlin earlier during 2014. They acquired the car from Elton Julian of the DragonSpeed team. The #23 Audi R8 LMS ultra was seen competing in the GT-A class of the 2014 Pirelli World Challenge with Bowlin behind the wheel.

Guy Cosmo was on hand for some driver coaching during the testing for M1 Racing at NOLA Motorsports Park.

M1 Racing has not yet announced if they will be returning to the Pirelli World Challenge in 2015, but with pre-season testing there could be a possibility of seeing the team back on the grid alongside multiple Audi teams in the ever-growing GT3 field of the PWC.
