The eEuroparts.com ROWE Racing Audi R8 LMS GT4

For 2019, we’re going to be running in the GS category for the first time, and with it comes a brand new race car to the eEuroparts.com warehouse shop.  Introducing the 2019 eEuroparts.com ROWE Racing Audi R8, freshly wrapped and ready for its first test this weekend!  The Audi R8 LMS GT4 is a factory built racing car designed to position between the Audi RS 3 LMS and the Audi R8 GT3 in the Audi Sport Customer Racing roster.  AScr has provided great support for our TCR efforts last season, so staying with Audi through our move up to GS was logical.  Here’s some details and specs on the new ride, borrowed from the Audi Sport Customer Racing website.
