Two private Audi A4 DTM cars seen testing at Monza

By Johan Laubscher

A series of Test Days are being held at Monza this week. Two very special Audi race cars have appeared at the legendary Italian track.

Two Audi A4 DTM cars were at the “Test Day KUNO SCHAER Motorsport”, the latest in a number of A4 DTM cars being spotted in private hands recently. The two cars which were present are both different A4 DTM versions. The first car is a 2008 Audi A4 DTM R14 fitted with the blue 2011 Audi Sport Team Rosberg Tv Movie livery, which was driven by Filipe Albuquerque during the 2011 DTM season. This was the first public appearance of a R14 in private hands. The second car appears to be a 2006 Audi A4 DTM R12 plus which has a new black and orange livery. Who now owns these two cars, and if they will be seen privately entered in any championships is not yet known.
