C.ABT Racing announced its driver line-ups for the upcoming 2015 ADAC GT Masters on Monday. The team had previously announced that they will be returning with a three-car Audi R8 LMS ultra campaign and now they have added the names of five of their six drivers.
The team has also been renamed from Prosperia C.ABT Racing to just C.ABT Racing, following the departure of their title sponsor, Prosperia AG, who had been with the team for a number of seasons.
They will once again be relying on young talent behind the wheel of their trio of Audi R8 LMS ultra entries.
The second C.ABT Racing entry will be piloted by Nicki Thiim, who will also be starting his second season with the team this year. His teammate will be another young South African, Jordan Lee Pepper, the winner of the 2014 Scirocco R-Cup. Pepper becomes the second Scirocco R-Cup champion to join C.ABT Racing in as many years, following Kelvin van der Linde who won that title in 2013.
The 2015 ADAC GT Masters season gets underway at Oschersleben from 24-26 April.
