"GMG Racing got our hands on this vehicle from Phoenix Racing in Germany less than two weeks before race day," acknowledges James Sofronas, GMG Racing president, co-founder, and lead driver. "We worked closely with SCCA officials to determine how to get the car into World Challenge spec and our crew has been implementing the modifications around the clock in preparation."

The modified Audi R8 LMS GT3 will debut in the GT Class for the April 15 World Challenge race in Long Beach. The car will be driven by the newest addition to the GMG Racing team, 2006 Grand-Am Champion Anders Hainer from Hidden Hills, California.
"GMG Racing is excited to have a quick and experienced driver such as Anders Hainer piloting the World Challenge Audi R8 LMS," noted Sofronas.

Sofronas will once again be behind the wheel of the No. 14 GMG Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car in the GT class, following up a second place podium finish during the opening weekend of the 2012 World Challenge series in St. Petersburg. Sofronas won the Long Beach event in 2009 and scored a runner up finish there last year.
"St Pete. was a bit of a disappointment as we had a strong car for the first race but couldn't capitalize with all the yellows," admitted Sofronas.
...
"GMG Racing is coming to the table in Long Beach with a deep lineup of drivers and vehicles that includes our usual staples plus some great debuts that promises an exciting race for us and the fans," concluded Sofronas. "We couldn't do it without the support of the great companies behind us like StopTech brakes, Mobil 1, Pirelli Tires and Endless."
"Needless to say, we want to win Long Beach," summarizes Sofronas.
