NEW AUDI R8 ULTRA GT3 ARRIVES AHEAD OF SEPANG DEBUT

21 MARCH 2018

We’re very pleased to announce that our latest addition to our racecar portfolio has just arrived and is now being prepared for its first race in black and yellow colours, the opening round of Thailand Super Series 2018, which will be held at Sepang International Circuit next week (29 Mar - 1 Apr).

This Audi R8 Ultra GT3 MY2013 conforms to Super Car GTM Plus regulations for the 2018 season, which permit GT3 homologated cars manufactured up to the end of 2014, and it has come directly from Europe.

It means that after regarding the inaugural season of GTM Plus as a “carry over” year, racing our previous Audi R8 Cup versions while we acquired new racecars that suited to the new category – we will now line up with a machine capable of fighting for honours.

The ‘Cup’ was simply too underpowered and for the category so we will finally have a racecar that suits the regulations.

Despite running the “Cup” specification car last year we fought tooth and nail for every meter of track and came away with the GTM Plus Teams’ title as well as a truly sensational victory in the final race of the year held in pouring rain.

In Sepang next week Henk J Kiks and Daniel Bilski will share our new R8 Ultra GT3 meaning our two highly experienced Super Car drivers, who know the Malaysian track inside out, should be ready for the action.

We will enter four cars in the opening round of Thailand Super Series – a full preview will follow at the start of next week.
