“Everyone at Paul Miller Racing is looking forward to racing with Audi in the new IMSA TUDOR SportsCar Championship,” Paul Miller said. “We also want to extend our thanks to Audi of America. We have had a long and great relationship with Audi, and they will be our partner in this effort. That was certainly a key element in our decision.”

The Audi R8 LMS race car shares more than 50% of its parts with the Audi R8 street car including the naturally aspirated V10 5.2 Liter engine, the Audi Space Frame and a variety of other components.

Of great benefit to the race teams is the first service interval at 12,000 miles under race conditions which translates into considerably lower operating costs.
