|• APR Motorsport competes in the Rolex 250 at Road America
• Team and Drivers focus on improvements
• Dion von Moltke confident in the Audi R8 GRAND-AM at Road America
Road America will host round 7 of the Rolex GRAND-AM Sports Car Series. The 4.048-mile, 14-turn track configuration includes long straights, swooping turns, high braking, and flat out straightaway speed. The layout is considered to be a perfect example of a true road course and consequently has never been altered.
APR Motorsport and the Audi R8 GRAND-AM are up for the challenge. After a minor setback at Mid-Ohio, the team will focus on the improvements that placed them fourth in qualifying in Detroit. The race car has plenty of potential and power that will suit the Road America track well.
“Racing at Road America brings me a lot of great racing memories. I’m excited to return to a track with so much history,” said von Moltke, race car driver for the #51 APR Motorsport Audi R8 GRAND-AM. “I drove here often in the Skip Barber Racing School series where I learned the fundamentals of driving race cars. I’m looking forward to showing off the Audi R8 V10 engine and what it can do at Road America!”
