IMSA CTSCC: Compass360 Racing completed first Audi S3 test at Miami

By Johan Laubscher

Compass360 Racing (360R) has quietly completed their first test session with one of their two brand new Audi S3 race cars.

During November it was announced that C360R will be developing two Audi S3 sedans for the 2015 IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. They have been hard at work finishing the build of the cars and conducted their first test session last weekend. The team's driver line-up includes Paul Holton and Kyle Gimple (#75 Audi S3) and Jim McGuire and Nico Rondet (#74 Audi S3).

The team chose a Chin Motorsports track day weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway for their roll out test. A total of three Audi race cars were on site last weekend for the track days from 3 to 4 January. ANSA Motorsports also fielded Eric Johnson's two Audi race cars, an Audi A4 DTM (2006 R12 plus) and an Audi R8 LMS.

Compass360 Racing will continue to develop and fine tune the Audi S3 race cars aiming to debut them at Sebring in March, round two of the 2015 IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge season.
