Audi S4 racers to Road America.

Auburn Hills, Mich. -The Champion Audi S4 team will compete this weekend in round five of the SCCA Pro Racing Speed Channel GT Series at Road America.

Michael Galati, driving the number one Champion Audi/Audi S4 Competition, takes his series points lead of 113 into the 4-mile rolling hills circuit in the heart of Wisconsin. "I think Road America will be a good circuit for our cars. I have run there a lot, the weight of our cars and the brakes maybe an issue as there is a lot of heavy braking. At Mid-Ohio we had an advantage off of the corners with our quattro drive. I am hoping this advantage will work for us at Road America in turn five and through the fast kink," said Galati.

Derek Bell driving the number two Legends of Motorsport Audi S4 Competition is currently in seventh place in the drivers' championship with 74. "The last time I ran Road America was in the Momo Nissan a few years back. I have some concerns about the long straights, the Porsches and Corvettes may have the measure of us in top speed. We should be able to make up some time in the corners with our quattro drive," said Bell.

After his first taste of the Audi S4 Competition at Mid-Ohio, Joel Nelson is looking forward to the Road America weekend. "It looks like a fast track. I hear it is one of the best tracks in America, it looks very much like a European circuit. We may struggle in the carrousel a little compared to the Porsche, we have a little more push. I am looking forward to another learning weekend with the Champion," said Nelson.
