Success in the USA
Audi Sport customer racing, USA, began their long-anticipated US debut in 2012 with the Audi R8 LMS. In a few short years, the US market has seen much success, winning the 2013 and 2016 Rolex 24 At Daytona and the 2014 Petit Le Mans. Since 2014, USA race teams have consistently finished in the top three for driver and championship points including the 2016 Manufacturers Championship. There is now a strong internal infrastructure with technical and parts support available throughout the season. In 2018, the Audi Sport customer offerings are now competing in the IMSA series. The Audi R8 GT3 LMS is now joined by the Audi R8 LMS GT4 and Audi RS 3 LMS in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge support series.

The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship features two styles of cars – Prototype (P), which showcases the latest automotive technology and are uniquely designed for the racetrack, and Grand Touring (GT), which is based on road-going production models. These two styles of cars make up the series’ three classes – Prototype, GT Le Mans (GTLM) and GT Daytona (GTD).
The IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge features sports cars that are closely identifiable with those seen on the street, such as coupes, hatchbacks and sedans. Three classes make up this series – GS, the highest performing class, the intermediate and new-for-2018 TCR class, and the ST class.
