Five weeks before the DTM season opener at the Hockenheimring on April 29 Audi is showing its lineup of Audi A5 DTM racers in the official racing livery.
At the first official DTM track tests at Valencia, four new Audi A5 DTM cars will be on track sporting their final outfits for the first time. The designs of the other four race cars plus the partners for the “title defense” project have been determined as well.
To be seen at Valencia will be the race cars driven by Mattias Ekström, Mike Rockenfeller, Timo Scheider and Edoardo Mortara. The A5 DTM vehicles sporting the liveries of Rahel Frey, Miguel Molina, Filipe Albuquerque and Adrien Tambay will be used for the first time two weeks later, in tracks tests at Hockenheim from April 2 to 5. The test at Valencia marks the beginning of the “final countdown” for the three Audi Sport teams, Abt Sportsline, Phoenix and Rosberg.
