2014 Australian GT Championship Rnd 3

Preparation is in full swing for Round 3 of the Australian GT Championship to be held at Townsville in conjunction with the V8 Supercars on July 4th-6th. The track which is a mix of road and street stylings is sure to suit the Audi R8 LMS cars which are prepared in house here at Melbourne Performance Centre.

The Schedule for the weekend is as follows – Friday 2 x practice sessions, 8am and 11:05am and 1 x 20 min qualifying at 2:45pm. Race 1 (40 minute race) Saturday 11:40am, Races 2 and 3 (40 minute races) 8:35am and 2:10pm.

Entering under the MPC banner is the #71 Equity-One backed Audi R8 of Dean Koutsoumidis and James Winslow who currently sit equal 3rd in the drivers standings after the first 2 rounds. And the #6 Skwirk Online Audi R8 of Rod Salmon who currently leads the drivers standings will be co-driven once again by Nathan Antunes. Sitting in 4th Spot in the drivers standings is Steven McLaughlan who will once again pilot his #75 Jamec Pem Audi R8 on his own. And rounding out the MPC team will be Ockert Fourie and John Magro in the #72 OLOF family & Cosmetic Audi R8, although only relatively new comers to the Australian GT Championship Fourie and Magro showed great pace at Philip Island and hope to better that at Townsville.

Lowndes to take on AUST GT Field

The Audi R8 that Lowndes will drive at Phillip Island
Team Vodafone V8 Supercars star Craig Lowndes will return to the wheel of an Audi R8 LMS when the Australian GT Championship heads to Phillip Island in late September.

The 38-year-old has competed with Audi’s factory effort at the last two Bathurst 12 Hour races, but is yet to race in the GT Championship.

He will drive one of five Melbourne Performance Centre-prepared R8s at the Shannons Nationals event.

“I am very pleased to be stepping back aboard an Audi R8 LMS again, and particularly at a track like Phillip Island,” said Lowndes.

“I’ve enjoyed my two outings with the factory Audi team at Bathurst in the 12-Hour but have yet to win in the car, so hopefully Phillip Island will give me the chance.

“The guys at Melbourne Performance Centre have been involved with the factory cars all the way, so I expect we will be very competitive again. I am looking forward to it.”

Lowndes’ entry utilises one of the two cars left in the country following this year’s Phoenix Racing Bathurst assault, and will run in the same One World Bar livery that proprietor Rod Salmon has competed with this season.

While the deal is a one-off, MPC owner Troy Russell has expressed his desire to see Lowndes join the team for a full campaign next year.

“Our aim is for this to be an ongoing program,” said Russell.

“Craig obviously has V8 Supercar commitments, and we’re thankful to Triple Eight for releasing him for the Phillip Island weekend, but … for us this is just the start. We’d like to have a professional driver in the car alongside our current team at every round in 2013.”

MPC is the Australian agent for Audi’s global customer GT program, and is likely to spearhead the marque’s attack on the 2013 Bathurst 12 Hour in the expected absence of an international Audi presence.
