ADAC GT Masters: MS Racing reveals Audi R8 LMS ultra driver line-ups for 2015

By Johan Laubscher

MS Racing announced that they will be running two Audi R8 LMS ultra cars in the 2015 ADAC GT Masters last Sunday and then later announced their full driver line-up on Friday this week.

The German Audi Sport customer racing team will be entering its third season with Audi R8 LMS ultra vehicles this year. They previously ran two cars in 2013 and a single car in 2014.

The team's 2015 driver line-up includes two familiar faces, along with two well-known additions.

Daniel Dobitsch and Florian Stoll will both be returning to MS Racing this year and will each be piloting one of the Audi R8 LMS ultra entries. They have both driven for MS Racing in the Audi R8 LMS ultra cars during the previous two seasons, they were also split in 2013 and drove together in 2014 behind the wheel of the #100 kfzteile24 APR Motorsport entry.

Dobitsch and Stoll will be joined in the MS Racing team by a potent duo who are well accustomed to Audi GT3 machinery, Marc Basseng and Edward Sandström.

The first MS Racing Audi R8 LMS ultra (#100) will be driven by Florian Stoll and Marc Basseng. Their teammates in the #24 Audi R8 LMS ultra will be Daniel Dobitsch and Edward Sandström.

The German and Swedish pairing of Basseng and Sandström completes a very strong four-man driver line-up for MS Racing in the 2015 ADAC GT Masters.

MS Racing will be lining up alongside multiple Audi R8 LMS ultra entries in the ADAC GT Masters this year, including cars from C.Abt RacingYACO Racing and Dupré Engineering Motorsport.
