Audi AG announced their 2014 TUDOR United Sports Car Championship campaign earlier today including an Audi R8 LMS Ultra for Californian based race team GMG.
There was a strong desire from the team for a clean design with interesting finishes (more to come on that!) and not using the ‘Blade’ as a colorway divider. GMG has a cool graphic logo present on most of their race cars through the years, so wanted to isolate that out and make it integral to the livery. The livery will make its debut at the Rolex 24 at the end of January.
Owner, Alex Welch will be joined by James Sofronas who took second place in the drivers championship of the Pirelli World Challenge. Audi Sport customer racing drivers Frank Stippler who came in the third place in last year’s race and Marc Basseng will join the team as they strive for success in the new Championship.
