Second APR Audi R8 GRAND-AM to compete at Watkins Glenn

Alabama-based APR Motorsport has announced that it will be fielding a second Audi R8 GRAND-AM racer at the Six Hours at the Glen GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car endurance classic on July 1. The #52 car, which will be piloted by Marc Basseng and Frank Stippler, will join the #51 R8 of Dr. Jim Norman, Dion von Moltke and Ian Baas.

“It’s a great feeling to be running two cars with involvement from Audi Sport and with two of their factory drivers at Watkins Glen this weekend. We’ve enjoyed our relationship with Audi as their official launch partner for the GRAND-AM program,” said APR Motorsport owner Stephen Hooks.

Based on the successful LMS GT3 racer, quattro GmbH has modified the R8 allowing to compete in the Grand Touring class of the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series in North America. Rules dictate that the ABS and traction control systems have to be disabled in the R8 GRAND-AM.
