M1 GT Racing, a premier program in the world of sports car racing, will enter their third year of running their GT program. Based on and utilizing the last two seasons of learning and competing in the Pirelli World Challenge (PWC), the team is now ready to compete in a full season effort with the 2016 Audi R8 LMS. The past two seasons have provided a great platform to help M1 GT Racing learn and master the ropes of the Pirelli World Challenge and understand the series and the manufacturers level of commitment to not only provide race winning equipment, but a professional, equal and level playing field for all teams and competitors involved.
“Since day one of our relationship with Audi, they have provided us with outstanding support as was promised and expected. Based on the numerous new cars available in 2016 in the GT class, M1 GT has decided based on projected performance of the product, as well as the strong support from Audi Sport customer racing, to remain a loyal partner to the brand and program.”
The M1 GT target and objective is to become the strongest customer based Audi team in North America beginning immediately and carrying forward throughout the 2016 racing season and beyond. The team has relocated their GT program to Florida and has upgraded all team equipment in preparation for the upcoming season. M1 GT’s intentions are to participate in as many North American events available in the coming year. In 2016 M1 GT will see competition in the Pirelli World Challenge, Pirelli World Challenge Sprint-X GT Championship Series as well as other select events.
