18 Audi R8 LMS cars at the season opener in Monza


SINGAPORE, APRIL 16, 2021 – Audi Sport customer racing has never been so strongly represented in the European racing series of promoter SRO (Stéphane Ratel Organization) as in the 2021 season. A total of nine of the brand’s customer teams will field three different types of race cars in three racing series at the inaugural weekend at Monza from April 16 to 18. Eight Audi R8 LMS GT4 cars will compete in the GT4 European Series, three GT2 versions in the new GT2 European Series and seven GT3 versions in the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup.

On the tradition-steeped high-speed circuit in the royal park of Monza, three of the most important European GT racing series will kick off this coming weekend. Audi Sport customer racing has traditionally been strongly represented in the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup. In 2011, 2012 and 2014, Audi drivers have already won this GT3 endurance racing series three times – each time with Team WRT. The Belgian squad has entered three Audi R8 LMS cars this year.
