Latest rumor has it that the Audi R8 LMS and the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 will race at GRAND-AM.

While a full-fledged North American championship doesn’t appear to be on the immediate horizon, a handful of popular brands may be headed to GRAND-AM. And some could take to the track as early as this year.

GRAND-AM Managing Director of Competition, Mark Raffauf, confirmed to SPEED.com that the series has been in negotiations with Mercedes-Benz, Audi and Lotus about adapting their GT3 and GT4-spec machinery to compete in the Rolex Sports Car Series’ GT category.
