The Belgian team WRT Team Audi Sport will again contest the 2020 season with two Audi RS 5 DTM cars on its own. With Ed Jones (24) from the United Arab Emirates and the Swiss Fabio Scherer (20), WRT again gives two young drivers a chance in the DTM.
Next week, the Audi drivers will be preparing for the new DTM season on the island of Lanzarote. From March 16 to 18, official test days are scheduled at Monza. The DTM 2020 starts on April 25/26 in Zolder, Belgium. A total of ten events with 20 races are on the calendar. New additions to the calendar are races in Anderstorp (Sweden), St. Petersburg (Russia) and Monza (Italy). Further locations are Assen (Netherlands) and Brands Hatch (Great Britain) and four events in Germany (Lausitzring, Norisring, Nürburgring and Hockenheim).
AUDI AG’s motorsport program continues to be based on three pillars: DTM, Formula E and customer racing. Highly efficient four-cylinder turbo engines with a displacement of two liters are used in the DTM. At Audi, these engines are important combustion engines worldwide. DTM plans to use plug-in hybrid systems from 2022. In combination with innovative fuels, such as those successfully tested by Audi at the 2019 DTM finale, DTM will show ways in which CO2 emissions can also be further reduced in combustion engines.
