Audi Targets Grand-Am With Fall-Line
“This year alone Fall-Line has earned podium finishes in both SCCA and the Continental Tires Sports Car Challenge Series events so expanding up the ladder and adding Rolex GT to our schedule is a natural progression,” said Fall-Line Motorsports team principal Mark Boden. “Audi’s sports car legacy and its knowledgeable and experienced support staff are an obvious choice for us to help further evolve our team and we’re proud to represent the ‘four rings’ synonymous with sports car victory.”
Piloting the car at Watkins Glen will be current Fall-Line drivers Al Carter, Charles Espenlaub and Charlie Putman, all whom drive currently in the Continental Tires Sports Car Challenge Series for the team. The successful Fall-Line trio has worked together for several years and has won many races including Fall-Line’s team and drivers’ 2010 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series championship with Espenlaub and Putman.
The No. 46 will be carrying sponsorship from the beloved charity that Al Carter and all of Fall-Line have supported over the years with B+ Racing featured prominently on the car. Additional partners will be announced in the coming weeks.
Fall-Line will be competing with the Audi R8 in the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series for the remainder of the 2013 season with a varied driver lineup throughout the year. Looking ahead Fall-Line is excited for 2014 and the inception of the newly formed United Sports Car Racing series. The class structure is still shaking out, and the classification for the Audi R8 has yet to be determined but a Fall-Line Audi R8 will be there.
