In its 53rd edition, the 24 hour classic at Daytona delivered the usual excitement – and it proved to be more challenging than ever. Changing track conditions and levels of surface grip, dense traffic, and enormously high speeds tested the driver’s abilities, and hardly any of the teams had a race that was even remotely free of trouble. The quartet of drivers for Paul Miller Racing also struggled to get its #48 Audi R8 LMS to the finish. They ultimately came through and secured 5th place in the GTD class, and the team can be happy with important points for the USCC season standings.
After the season opener at Daytona, Christopher Haase won’t find much time to relax. From Florida, the Audi driver will travel to Germany where he works as a driver coach for the “Audi Driving Experience”. And as fate would have it, one of the Audi Driving Experience’s most famous disciples will share an Audi R8 LMS with him at the next highlight of the season, on February 5-8!
