Monterey, Calif. (29 April 2015) – IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge driver Kyle Gimple won’t have far to travel this weekend for the next race on the calendar as the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca stop is the only one of the year in which the West Coast racer won’t have to travel across the country. Located just five hours Southwest of Gimple’s Minden, Nevada home, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is the third round of the 2015 championship and is a highly anticipated event for drivers, teams and fans alike. It’s been six weeks since the previous Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge outing at Sebring International Raceway but Gimple and his Compass360 Racing team haven’t taken much time to rest.

The event is sponsored by Bayliss & Associates, Certified Public Accountants based in Carson City, and will give the public a firsthand look at the Audi S3 racer that made its competition debut in March.
Sebring, Fla. (20 March 2015) – As Kyle Gimple arrived at Sebring International Raceway for Round 2 of the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, he and his Compass360 Racing team were hoping for a solid weekend as the IMSA race winner was set to drive the Audi S3 in its competition debut. The goal was to not only score some solid data on the new car and add points toward the IMSA championship, but to also learn as much as the tough old track would offer about the sleek new Audi. Building on what the team knew from testing, Compass360 Racing was able to add to its database through the Sebring event’s practice sessions leading up into the Microsoft Visual Studios 150 with the No. 75 AERO Advanced Paint Technology/Children’s Tumor Foundation Audi S3.
