Audi in motorsports

Motorsports is part of the Audi DNA, from the historic Auto Union Silver Arrows of the 1930s, to the legendary quattro® powered rally and GTO cars of the 1980s, to dominance at Le Mans over the past two decades. Motorsports has for years served as a platform to test the latest Audi innovations in the most demanding environments possible before introducing them to production models.  As a new era of electrified cars begins, Audi will be there with a factory-backed commitment in the all-electric Formula E racing series as of the 2017/2018 season.

Audi expanded beyond its factory racing efforts in 2009 with the introduction of the Audi Sport customer racing program. For the first time, it was possible for motorsport customers to acquire a race car designed for the track. Since inception, the success of the R8 LMS has been significant throughout GT3 racing series worldwide, with multiple victories in the Pirelli World Challenge since 2012. 

The all-new R8 LMS GT3 had strong endurance racing debuts, winning the 2015 24 hours of Nürburgring and the 2016 Rolex 24 at Daytona, and concluding the 2016 IMSA WeatherTech season with the Manufacturer’s Championship in GTD.
