The world of professional driving is about to get a little bit more interesting, with some serious contenders looking to make their mark in the industry.
From the makers of the popular M-Sport, the manufacturers of the M-Power, the M6, and now the M5, to the designers of the Audi TT RS, the world of sports car design is getting a new look.
Nowhere is the change in pace and style quite as apparent as at the annual Autodromo Hermanos Rodriquez.
A classic in its day, it is now one of the most coveted automotive shows in the world.
The new race track is scheduled to be unveiled on May 19, but it has already drawn the attention of several big names, including Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-AMG, and Porsche.
The announcement comes as a surprise to many of the competitors, but the fact that it’s happening at all is.
It’s a testament to the growth of the sport and how much the likes of Mercedes- AMG, BMW and Audi have gained in the past decade, and the new track will be the focus of all the action in the coming weeks.
For Mercedes- Benz, it’s a major coup for the brand, who have made no secret of their desire to win the World Endurance Championship, the pinnacle of endurance racing.
With a new track to test the new Mercedes-Maserati M600 in the wake of the departure of the DTM, the German manufacturer is looking to push the envelope and create an iconic circuit that could set a new benchmark for endurance racing in the future.
“It’s an important step for us because it’s going to be the start of a new era in our history,” said a Mercedes-Bach, the team that owns the race track.
“We want to be a global leader in the field and we want to make sure we have the best track in the World to compete on, and this is the perfect opportunity for us to do that.”
The move to the new race venue is the latest step in Mercedes-BMW’s quest to make a mark in sports car racing.
A year ago, the Bavarian company announced plans to move its motorsport programme from its existing facilities in Germany to a new facility in the United States.
It will bring with it new technology, and a new focus on making sure the brand stays relevant in a world where it can’t be seen on television, and has to make do on its own terms.
For Audi, the decision to go the road of race is an important one.
The German company is well known for the fact it produces some of the best racing cars in the entire sport, and will likely be in the race for the first time in 2019.
With the introduction of the new M5 GT3, Audi’s race programme will become even more exciting, with its top class cars having been handed over to the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
With its new track, Audi will be able to put more emphasis on its brand identity, which has been on the decline for a while.
It was the first German car manufacturer to sign up for the WeatherTech Series, and was also the first to launch a series of race cars in GT3 for 2018, as well as the first race car to be powered by a new engine.
“Our goal is to be one of a few GT3 manufacturers in the GT class, but also a GT2 team,” said Stefan Ritter, Head of Audi Sport Cars.
“It’s a goal that we have had since the beginning of this project, and we are determined to make this happen.”
The M5 will be used by Audi for the 2017 season, with the team aiming to become a GT champion.
Its arrival in the M7 GT3 will make its way into the new series, but Audi is also planning to have the M4 GT3 and M5 race cars for the M8 GT3 in 2020.
With all of the changes taking place at the track, it will be interesting to see what other manufacturers, or drivers, have a shot at a podium in the new car.
“With a race on the horizon, the race team is determined to have as many racing cars as possible,” said Audi Sport Car Head of Motorsport, Timo Reiter.
“We also want to give the car an aerodynamic boost and the ability to push a lot harder than in the previous car.”
The new track has been developed in conjunction with the Audi Sport Group, and features the same track layout as its predecessor, with four sections on the circuit.
In addition, there is a longer straight on the track with a long straights and a longer chicanes.
With this new design, it should be easy for the drivers to get into the right zone in the corners, with a little help from the car’s new adaptive suspension.
The layout of the track will also make it easy for drivers to see the speed limit and
