"I am absolutely thrilled to say that Audi Mississauga and Audi Brampton will be partnering with me for a second consecutive season with Audi. The brand itself is recognized as a luxurious and reputable company, and I believe that these two stores, under the Bramgate Automotive dealer group, emit exactly that. If you haven't been to their stores - please go! You will see the warmth, and care they take to look after their customers. I always feel right at home walking through the doors of both dealerships. I cannot thank the Bramgate team enough for partnering with myself and my team for 2019. We have a lot planned this year, so it is really going to be an amazing season!! Stay tuned!"
“We’re excited to support Lindsay and the Rice Racing team in the Audi RS3 LMS for a second competitive race season in 2019. We can’t think of a better way to showcase the Audi Sport DNA and the connection between the brand’s racing efforts and the vehicle lineup available to our customers. What makes this partnership even more special is that we have the opportunity to renew our partner with someone from our local community in a great motorsport series”, says Vice President of Bramgate Automotive, Brad Johnston.
Lindsay Rice will represent the two Audi dealerships as the official brand ambassador while she competes under the Bramgate Automotive, Inc. name this season. As official brand ambassador, Audi of Mississauga and Audi Brampton will be providing Lindsay Rice with an Audi vehicle for the duration of Summer 2019. Rice Racing, Audi of Mississauga and Audi Brampton are excited to announce we will be hosting events throughout 2019. More information will be available on our websites and social media channels.
During the 2018 season, Rice Racing achieved 2 race wins, multiple podiums in the RS3 LMS in GT racing. Driver of the #18 Rice Racing Audi RS3 LMS, Lindsay Rice, comments, "I have had a few things on my goal list since I began racing - one of them was to own my own racing team, which I now do. Rice Racing has grown to become a team of its own and one that is recognized across the country. It really is a dream come true. The second was to compete in a full series in pro racing. This is exactly what we are doing this year in the Canadian Touring Car Championship. I truly cannot believe that this season we will see two of my goals checked off. I couldn't be here without Audi of Mississauga and Audi of Brampton and the Bramgate team. Thank you so much and I really look forward to entering into this journey with my Audi family!"
