Audi Press Release
- Intensive weeks until the first DTM race of the season
- Assembly of the eight Audi RS 5 DTM cars at Audi Sport in Neuburg
- Proven driver line-up and unchanged team assignments
Audi will be the only manufacturer to tackle the title chase with an unchanged driver line-up and has retained the allocation of drivers to the teams from last year as well: Mattias Ekström (S), Miguel Molina (E), Edoardo Mortara (I) and Adrien Tambay (F) will be competing in Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline, Timo Scheider (D) and Mike Rockenfeller (D) in Audi Sport Team Phoenix, Jamie Green (GB) and Nico Müller (CH) in Audi Sport Team Rosberg. The eight drivers combined are bringing know-how gained in 608 DTM races to the project. They have decided 38 DTM races in their favor to date and won five titles. Another one is to follow in 2015.
For the first time, the teams are assembling the eight race cars for the 2015 season based on last year’s monocoques and components at the new Competence Center Motorsport in Neuburg. It takes two weeks to complete an RS 5 DTM that consists of some 4,000 parts. Following the tests at Estoril and Oschersleben, the teams will be taking over their race cars to prepare them in Kempten, Meuspath and Neustadt for the season opener at Hockenheim. Tickets for the ‘DTM 2015’ project are available at www.audi-motorsport.com.
