Audi Certified Champion RS 6 Road Atlanta Preview




POMPANO BEACH, Fl.  (September 20, 2004) – The Audi Certified Champion RS 6 team will face its greatest challenge in the team’s five year history competing in the SCCA SPEED World Challenge GT series when Champion Racing drivers Randy Pobst and Michael Galati compete in the next to the last round of the 10 race series as part of this weekend’s Petit Le Mans race at Road Atlanta, September 22-25.   

The SCCA Pro Racing Ltd. organization recently issued additional adjustments to the Audi RS 6 “Competition” cars.  These adjustments include:  a 49.4 percent restrictor prior to each turbocharger (the car carried no restrictor previously); a maximum rear weight distribution of 42 percent (previously 42.5 percent); a combined limit of intercooler and brake cooling water capacity of 3.5 gallons (previously not limited); a freeze on the air intake system; a freeze on the cooling system and the removal of the standard intercoolers and air intake listed on the current Vehicle Technical Specifications (VTS), which were used only at Sebring due to parts availability.


The SCCA SPEED World Challenge GT race at Road Atlanta, Round nine of the 2004 Championship, is scheduled for Saturday, September 24, at 3:55 p.m. (EDT).  The race will be broadcast the following Sunday, September 26 on SPEED Channel at 1 p.m. (EDT).


Randy Pobst (Gainesville, GA).  “Due to the hard work from Champion Racing and the ingenuity and inherent capabilities of the Audi RS 6, Michael and I have managed to have a good season.  We hope to continue that at Road Atlanta this weekend.  It will no doubt be more difficult that it has ever been before for this team.”


Michael Galati (Olmsted, OH).  “I love racing at Road Atlanta.  It’s my favorite track.  However this weekend will be really tough for us.  The recent adjustments will be hard to overcome but like always, we’ll give it our 100% best effort and try to make the best of it.”
