I've been hoping that the R8 would make an appearance in the North America ever since it debuted two years ago. Until now the R8 LMS has only been available in GT3 class specification and there hasn't been a space for it in ALMS. While the ALMS GT Challenge class has been a success for the series, it has so far been limited to the Porsche 911 GT3. There are a number of other cool GT3 cars available in Europe that could provide some exciting racing here including the BMW Z4 and Lotus Evora. If the rumors are accurate, Audi will be developing a GT2/GTE version of the R8 to compete against the Corvettes, Ferrari 458s, Jaguar XKRs and of course the venerable 911. Bring 'em on.
