APR Motorsport, the largest team in GRAND-AM with seven cars spread amongst the Rolex Sports Car Series and the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, is proud to announce its new partnership with RAYS Wheels.

The team, which fields an Audi S4 in the CTSCC’s GS class, as well as two VW GTI’s and three VW Jetta GLI’s in the ST class, will exclusively race on RAYS Wheels in the popular series. Future project cars developed at APR will also utilize RAYS Wheels. Rolex Series rules prohibit the use of one-piece RAYS wheels on the no. 51 APR Audi R8 Grand-Am, but RAYS wheels will be featured on street Audi R8s that are built at APR.

“We are thrilled to have RAYS Wheels on board with APR Motorsport,” said Stephen Hooks, Founder and CEO of APR. “Much like APR, RAYS Wheels have built their company and reputation entirely in the world of motorsports. Both companies have similar goals and strive for the highest quality in the parts they provide for their customers, and we are both committed to a long-term partnership.”

As part of their partnership, APR and RAYS Wheels will be developing a line of wheels for Audi and Volkswagen vehicles that is set to debut later this year. The team utilized RAYS Wheels for the first time during the BMW Performance 200 at Daytona International Speedway, where the drivers quickly gave positive feedback on the lightness and strength of the new RAYS wheels.

“We are very excited to be working with the team at APR for the upcoming season,” said Wakana Kosumi, Overseas Marketing Manager for RAYS Wheels. “They are highly recognized both in the USA and our home in Japan, as well as globally. They showcase similar characteristic as RAYS and we believe their performance will be a great addition to our product advancements.”

Details about the new line of RAYS Wheels developed with APR Motorsport will be released later this summer.
