Audi Sport Delivers 100th RS3 LMS Dressed In Special Gold Livery

Audi Sport has reached an important milestone for its customer racing department, after delivering the 100th example of the Audi RS3 LMS less than a year after the model’s official debut.

The 350hp celebratory race car made its appearance at the recent Audi Summit in Barcelona and was driven on stage by junior racing driver Joonas Lappalainen. VW Group builds all of its TCR race cars at the Martorell factory in Spain.

Chris Reinke, Head of Audi Sport customer racing said: “We have already delivered 90 examples of our race car to customers around the world and have received preorders up to the 100th model. We’re proud that our entry model for touring car racing has gone down so well and that it is already such an important pillar of our model range.”

Customer teams have already participated in 125 races on three continents, scoring 73 podiums and including 24 victories. The TCR class has grown in popularity internationally, with 13 series already been set up worldwide and an additional six circuit championships with classes for TCR race cars.
