Audi IMSA news and Ford GT development
Yet another day of IMSA GT news. Stevenson Motorsports confirmed their move to a two car 2016 IMSA GTD entry with customer Audi R8. That’s a major move for a Continental Tires support series team to move up to the big show and move from GM to Audi. At the same time, Magnus Racing announced its move from Porsche to a customer Audi R8 program. Magnus also confirmed that some guy named Andy Lally – noted possum killer– will continue to drive for them.
As Audi Sport’s Brad Kettler says to Marshall Pruett in Racer Magazine: “Wait until teams get a hold of this bullet.”
Marshall Pruett also reports on the continuing development of the Ford GT platform by the Ganassi Racing team. As vintage Dave Letterman would say, for those of you scoring at home or even for those of you who are alone, Ganassi is scheduled to have two cars at the upcoming IMSA test in Daytona.
Did you see the new Audi R8 that was on display and won at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring?
