Imsa-de­rived Audi S4 GTO turns heads with Worces­ter­shire out­ing

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

An Audi IMSA S4 GTO, never be­fore been seen on Bri­tish soil, ran at Shel­s­ley Walsh dur­ing the Clas­sic Nos­tal­gia week­end.

Now owned by Audi en­thu­si­ast John Han­lon, the car only ar­rived in the UK from Amer­ica four weeks ago, and was driven by Hans-joachim Stuck for the first time since 1992.

The car was a re­work of the 1990 IMSA GTO des­tined for South Africa for the Wes­bank Mod­i­fied Race Se­ries.

The car was named the IMSA S4 GTO and chas­sis num­ber 001, which ran at Shel­s­ley, was the first of only two cars built.

Stuck drove the car to two wins at Kil­lar­ney in late 1992. It later won the 1993 ti­tle be­fore be­ing re­tired when the se­ries rules were changed for 1995. Amer­i­can Steve Zlotkin bought the project and took it to the US where it re­mained un­til his death last year.
