Fresh off of a Grand Sport (GS) championship in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, Stevenson Motorsports’ Andrew Davis is looking forward to the 2016 season.
“We’re stepping back up into the big show after two great seasons with the Continental Tire Challenge,” Davis said. “We’re really happy to be back to the WeatherTech Championship.”
At the Roar Before the Rolex 24, Davis joined Stevenson Motorsports teammates Robin Liddell, Matt Bell and Lawson Aschenbach in the No. 6 Audi R8 LMS GT3, which is brand new to the team.
“We’re working through the procedures of learning the car,” Davis reported. “With the No. 6, literally, the first wheel turned in its life was here three days ago. We have all this test time, so now we’re gathering data and getting the time in for all of our drivers.”
The team was successful, landing their R8 third-fastest in GT Daytona at the end of the weekend with a 1:47.949.
“We’ve got a very experienced group and we’re working together and with our new engineers to maximize performance,” said Davis. “So far it’s been really great; the car is a dream to drive. The performance is very impressive. We’re loving it at this point.”
