Calabogie-based TWOth Autosport set their sights on Daytona International Speedway with the arrival of North America’s first gen II Audi RS 3 LMS TCR cars. The Audi Sport Customer Racing team and inaugural FEL Motorsports Sports Car Championship Canada (SCCC) champions have their eyes set on debuting the next generation of Audi customer cars at the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge season opener ahead of the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be given this opportunity,” said TWOth Team Principal and FEL championship-winning driver Travis Hill. “Making the North American competition debut for the latest Audi factory race car is a dream come true for us, and something we’ve been working toward for years.”

The Canadian outfit’s two entries mark a significant milestone in TWOth’s relationship with Audi, as well as partners Spotify and Tomlinson Motorsports. With four seasons in the Audi TCR under their belt across FEL Sports Car Championship Canada, the Canadian Touring Car Championship (CTCC), SRO TC America, and the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, the partnership has seen success throughout North America. Boasting team highlights of SRO victories at Watkins Glen, and ultimately CTCC and FEL championship titles, this is an opportunity TWOth Autosport has earned.
“The first-gen Audi RS 3 LMS has been a huge part of our team’s growth and success over the past four seasons, providing an excellent platform for our drivers to chase their motorsport goals,” Hill said. “Our drivers and partners are excited to debut the next generation Audi RS 3 LMS and build upon our momentum in the North American market.”
The car's livery features variations of the RS 3 LMS' launch design featuring partners Shopify and Tomlinson Motorsports. "Our friends at Sekanskin have taken this concept and once again knocked it out of the park," Hill said.
Belgian-Canadian Looijmans, part of TWOth’s Shopify Driver Development Program, is quickly making his mark in North American sportscar racing. Finishing a dazzling third in his rookie season of FEL TC Canada championship competition, the opportunity to take to the famed Daytona International Speedway marks the next step in his motorsport journey alongside the experienced Tomlinson.
