On the Road with ADT/Champion


The ADT/Champion Audi R8 team had a very busy summer, with a series of races spaced too closely for the team to return home to Florida between events. As a result, the team spent the better part of two months away from home, heading from one event to the next, and taking a little time in between to relax and have some fun.

The R8 crew spent the time between Elkhart Lake and Washington, D.C. at Crew Chief Brad Kettler's shop in College Corner, Indiana, where the S4 team also did their pre-Washington maintenance. Testing at VIR between D.C. and Trois-Rivieres gave the R8 team time to do their rebuild, and provided the S4 team with an early look at the season-finale venue.

Below are some of the photos we didn't have time to share previously...in this case, taken by various members of the team. Enjoy...
