North American debut of the Audi RS 3 LMSMay 2nd, 2017
This past weekend, the team at Compass Racing / C360R brought their Pfaff Automotive Audi RS 3 LMS to the VIRginia International Raceway for the Pirelli World Challenge.
Paul Holton drove the RS 3 LMS strong pulling off a 1st place podium for Saturday’s race despite falling ill during the race due to heat exhaustion brought on by a red flag. Still a perfect way to introduce the new Audi that could to the PWC series.
Sunday’s race saw stiff competition from Greg Liefooghe in the BMW M235iR who took 1st place, Holton was able to pull off a 2nd place podium finish while also setting the fastest lap of the race with a 2:02.262.
A well fought and successful opening weekend for C360R and Audi. We are excited to watch Paul and the guys from C360R at their next stop, right here at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
