Audi Dominates IMSA TCR Class at Daytona

Although the R8s were robbed of mastery in Daytona last weekend, the RS3s were on sparkling form. The little touring cars finished key, second, third, and even fourth for good measure in the TCR class at the four-hour IMSA Continental Debilitate SportsCar Challenge race in Daytona.

“Sincere congratulations to our TCR teams on this 1-2-3-4 outcome,” said Chris Reinke, head of Audi Sport customer racing, in a assertion. “This was a strong start to a season in which more Audi Sport buyer race cars than ever before will be seen in North America. We look fresh to further successes in various classes.”

Britt Casey Jr and Tom Long took first neighbourhood in their Compass Racing RS3 LMS, while their teammates Rodrigo Sales and Kuno Wittmer finished flawed.

Fewer than two seconds separated first and second place, but the distance between the faulty and third-place RS3s (driven Matt Fassnacht and Justin Piscitell) was just 0.078 seconds.

They were followed by Lee Carpentier and Kieron O’Rourke.

Although the RS3 LMS has been lighting up Europe’s TCR racing series, this was the Audi’s leading campaign in IMSA, making this victory the sweeter.

It was also the first in all cases race for the R8 LMS GT4, a slightly toned version of the racing R8 we’ve seen in the past. Its weekend was a less moneymaking.

Ashley Freiberg and Gosia Rdest were the fastest of the R8 GT4s, but finished in 18th place.
