Together with its customers, Audi Sport customer racing has celebrated the first titles of the Audi R8 LMS in North America. The GT3 race car prevailed in three categories of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Audi won the manufacturers’ title in the GTD class thanks to the points scored by its teams Magnus Racing and Stevenson Motorsports. The race cars with the four rings also claimed victories in the special classification made up of the four major endurance races at Daytona, Sebring, Watkins Glen and Road Atlanta: Magnus Racing beat ten other outfits in the GTD teams’ classification of the North American Endurance Cup, and Audi won the manufacturers’ trophy ahead of five other brands. For Audi, this has been the first championship win in North America since its string of nine successive titles in the American Le Mans Series between 2000 and 2008.
