MPC unveils lion livery for Audi GT3

MELBOURNE Performance Centre has unveiled its lion-liveried Audi to be driven by Ash Samadi in the Amateur class of GT World Challenge Australia this year.

Samadi will contest the full season in the #22 R8 LMS GT3 Evo 2, one of several Audis set to be entered by MPC.

“This year with the new SRO Australia management and structure, it’s very exciting,” said Samadi, who will test at Phillip Island on Monday.

“I’m pretty positive about the category and excited to contest the entire series.

“It’s going more towards the GT World Challenge Asia way of running things, which is good and something that I’m keen for.

“We are pretty proud of the results from last year, and it’s great to link up with the Audi Sport Customer Racing Australia team.

“The team does an excellent job as the biggest operation in terms of GT racing locally. The team did a brilliant job last season and for my first round in Asia as well, so full marks to them.

“We had a couple of podiums last year and my aim is to add a few more as I try to run as high as I can in Am Class. If this year we can better last season, I will be happy.

“I love driving the Audi. It’s suited for my sort of driving in it being very active and I’m keen to stay with Audi. I started off in the Mosler, but have been on and off in the category for around 15 years.

“I think GT is home for me, it’s where I feel like I belong.”

The opening sprint round of the GT World Challenge Australia season will take place at Phillip Island on April 12-14.
