Guest Speaker: Karl Thomson – Team Principal, C360R Compass Racing
Karl joined UCR in 1991 and a short time later began his motorsports adventure as a student in UCR’s driver education program in 1994 with his 944 Turbo; and when he became an instructor he was one of the youngest ever in PCA. He progressed through PCA Club Racing and in 2003 formed C360R, a professional motorsports operation that prepares and races cars in sportscar series in North America. This multiple championship-winning team has fielded cars in IMSA’s WeatherTech Championship, the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the Pirelli World Challenge, Canadian Touring Car and PCA.
As a driver with the team, Karl has won twelve pro races, and been on the year-end podium in four different championships. He finished second in the 24 Hours of Daytona in a Porsche Cayman in 2013. As a team owner, he has had drivers win over 50 races and five professional sportscar championships between them. Beyond that, C360R has won ten Manufacturer’s championships with their automotive partners.
Toronto-based C360R currently fields two McLaren 570S GT4s, a duo of Audi RS3 and S3s, and an Audi TT RS VLN.
