Audi Sport customer racing Delivers 50th R8 LMS

Having already won the Nürburgring 24 Hours and Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, one could easily say that the new Audi R8 LMS is a success.  Today, Audi Sport customer racing proved that the new vehicle is a commercial success as well by delivering their 50th unit to Yaco Racing, destined for a campaign in ADAC GT Masters.

Audi Sport customer racing sold 137 examples of the previous-generation R8 LMS since it’s introduction in 2009.  Since the new car’s introduction in September, the outfit has already matched 36 per cent of that total, leading us to believe that the previous sales record will be quickly surpassed.

Yaco Racing will kick off their 2016 season at Motorsport Arena Oschersleben in Germany on April 15th.
