Audi’s move into Formula 1 has resulted in the following:
- IMSA Hypercar Program – Deep Six
- WEC Hypercar Program – Deep Six
- Customer GT Racing after 2023 – Deep Six
On Wednesday, Motorsport.com published an article citing multiple anonymous sources that Ingolstadt’s long tenure in the world of customer GT racing will come to a close after 2023. With that, Audi will presumably cease development of its R8 LMS GT3 and RS 3 TCR chassis, disband its factory driver squad and, of course, stop offering support to client teams. Those teams may press on with the cars in their possession for as long as they choose to at their own expense.
