Speed GT Race - Champion Audi RS6's Qualify 2nd and 4th at Mosport




17 May - Randy Pobst and Michael Galati start their Audi RS 6 “Competitions” from second and fourth places on the 22-car grid in tomorrow’s 28 laps, 68.85 mile race.


The 20-minute session for the second round of the Speed World Challenge GT series at Mosport had run less than five minutes when it was red-flagged due to oil on the track after a Porsche crashed out.


But thankfully both Audi Sport North America-supported Champion Racing Audis had posted quick laps on their one and only “flying” laps.


Michael Galati (43):

“Mosport has been very frustrating for us so far.  The test day running on Thursday was cut short, yesterday was a ‘wash out’ and just one lap recorded today.  We need to get miles in the new RS 6 so we can develop it.  My one and only qualifying lap was decent – I can’t really complain too much.”


Randy Pobst (45):

“We’ve endured truncated sessions here so far but its been the same for everyone.  The Audi engine feels real strong  and despite our lack of running at Mosport, we’re making good progress.  Second is an excellent position to be in – it’s my normal strategy to get a quick lap in during a session and it worked well today.


Louis Milone, Champion Racing’s RS 6 Team Leader:

“It hurt us today – we’d been hoping to accumulate a number of laps.  Didn’t learn anything in the one session we ran yesterday in the wet, and then one lap in today its all over.  Looking at our grid positions we’re in pretty decent shape for tomorrow’s race.


Rod Bymaster, Audi Sport North America’s Motorsport Manager:

“It turned out well for us – for sure it could have been a lot worse.  Michael is lined-up right behind Randy on the grid and with the prospect of a number of yellow periods during the race, we needed to be at the front of the grid.”
