FRESH OFF BEST RESULT OF 2016: The IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Championship winning team arrives with momentum from its season-best result of fourth at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca four weeks ago. After a spirited drive by Robin Liddell saw the No. 6 Audi R8 LMS in podium contention in the final minutes of the race, the Scotsman ultimately accepted a top-five finish at the checkered flag while the brother No. 9 Audi R8 LMS of Matt Bell and Lawson Aschenbach scored a top-10 finish.

RETURNING WINNERS: When Stevenson Motorsports last visited the Belle Isle circuit in 2013, the driving duo of Robin Liddell and John Edwards took victory with the team’s Camaro GT.R. The Stevenson group also took a podium finish of third at the track in 2012. The 2016 event will mark Stevenson Motorsports’ first visit to a street circuit with the Audi R8 LMS.

NEW LOOK FOR LEUKEMIA/LYMPHOMA AWARENESS: The No. 6 Stevenson Motorsport Audi R8 LMS will have a new look for Detroit as it features the names of loved ones affected by Leukemia and Lymphoma in an effort to raise awareness for cancer research and funding for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
