[ Race Car / Touring / Sports ]

This car remains competitive as evidenced by its’ results. Meticulously maintained by Philip Creighton Motorsports, it is in true race ready condition. It shows no evidence of any major damage and is estimated to have approximately 12,500 km usage, which is very low for a car of this vintage. Engine time to rebuild is 20,000 km per AudiSport. Fuel cell expiration is not until 2028.

Originally sold to Mr. Dietmar Haggenmuller on July 16, 2013. It appears to have been tracked/raced in Hockenheim twice in 2013 and raced three times in 2014 in GT Open events.

Sold in April 2018 to prolific racer Uwe Alzen. It raced twice at the Gulf 12 Hours, finishing tenth in 2018 and fourth in 2019.

Sold to James Sofronas, principal of GMG Racing, in 2019. The car was given a transmission rebuild, fuel cell refresh and engine mid-life service at 10,000 km including spark plugs, coil packs and other recommended service from AudiSport. Sofronas ran the car twice, once at Laguna Seca and once at the Masters races at COTA, winning both events. The car was put up for sale upon delivery of his new Audi R8 LMS EVO II.

Purchased by SKI Autosports in early 2023, it immediately had a thorough inspection, service and safety equipment update (belts, fire system and cool suit). A new fuel cell was fitted in May prior to entering the SRO GT America series.

In April, the car was entered in the IGT race at Road Atlanta as a test where it was first in both Sprint Race 1 and the Enduro.

In five SRO events, it was on the podium five times with a first and second at Nashville, a second in Indianapolis and a third at both VIR and Sebring, where Johnny O’Connell won the hard charger award going from seventh to third in race two. All this accomplished with a ten year old car competing against new GT3 cars. Johnny also won the Masters Championship and finished fourth overall in spite of not running all 9 race weekends ( 18 total races).
