APR scored their first podium finish with their brand-new Audi R8 Grand-Am on Saturday. The P2 finish was the highest for the new R8. The only prior top-10 finish for the No. 51 APR Motorsports Audi was ninth at Montreal. Dion von Moltke brought the car home safely after several contacts with other GT cars in a very hard fought finale. Dion and his co-driver Dr. Jim Norman were able to fight their way back from 16th place in an impressive 2nd place finish after an accident during qualifying forced them to start at the rear.
