First title in Canada

 

Audi Sport customer racing Canada has every reason to celebrate. Parker Thompson in an Audi R8 LMS GT4 of the Speedstar team won the GT Sport classification of the Canadian Touring Car Championship.


The Canadian won his class in seven of the first eight races, scored a total of 936 points and, as a result, was out his rivals’ reach in the standings. After the Audi R8 LMS GT4 in its 2018 maiden season clinched a total of ten titles in America and Europe, the success in Canada marks the eleventh class win in just two years.



In addition, the driver and team on clinching the first title in Canada made history in the worldwide track record of Audi Sport customer racing.



In the finale at Mosport, Nathan Blok drove the Audi R8 LMS GT4 of the team and with victory in race one and second place in race two continued the Speedstar team’s string of success.
