The six hour endurance race at the historic Watkins Glen track marks the return of the Audi R8 GRAND-AM to the series after its GT Class Rolex 24 win at Daytona during the first round of the 2013 championship.
“Audi’s many global motorsports programs act as a showcase for our, ‘truth in engineering’ campaign,” stated Brad Kettler, Audi Sport USA director of operations and engineering. “It is therefore imperative Audi aligns itself with apex performing teams to execute its racing programs. Fall-Line is such a high-performing professional race team and Audi is excited to launch what will hopefully be a successful and long-term partnership.”
Audi is in their second season as an official automotive partner of the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series adding its R8 Grand-Am GT race car to its long-line of successful prototype sports cars dominating Le Mans and American Le Mans racing in recent years.
