Multiple-championship-winning team returns to ST for 14th straight season.

TORONTO, CANADA — Long-time IMSA team C360R today announced the return of its popular Audi S3 to Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge competition for the 2017 season. This is the team’s 14th consecutive year in the IMSA-sanctioned series.

“This year marks our third season in Street Tuner with the S3, and we’ve made significant progress over the off-season since Road Atlanta in October,” remarked Team Principal Karl Thomson. “This car marked the introduction of some new new technology to the ST class, such as the Quattro all-wheel drive and S-tronic gearbox, and it has taken some time to tweak the electronics of a road-going car to tune them for racing purposes.”

Part of that significant progress has been the addition of APR LLC as a technical partner. “The guys at APR have been just amazing to work with on the S3,” noted Technical Director Ray Lee. “They’ve got a lot of history with cars like these, and we feel like we’ve really moved the platform along.”
