Six weeks after its world premiere at Goodwood, England, the Audi R8 LMS GT2 made its American debut. At the Monterey Car Week on the California Pacific coast, the new race car from Audi Sport customer racing was one of the stars.





On display at “The Quail” motorsport show, in the Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach and as a very fast race taxi on the racing track at Laguna Seca, Audi Sport customer racing’s most powerful model thrilled the large American sports car community.



Hildegard Wortmann visited the prestigious event as Member of the Management Board of AUDI AG for Sales and Marketing. Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen presented the car throughout the weekend and during taxi rides of the Audi R8 LMS GT2 with selected guests created some unforgettable impressions.





Starting in the 2020 season, the first GT2 racing categories in America, Europe and Asia will provide fielding opportunities for this new type of race car.




In addition, gentlemen drivers will be able to enjoy unforgettable driving pleasure with the 640-horsepower model at Track Days and Race Resorts.
