Audi Sports Edoardo Mortara talks DTM

Edoardo Mortara, Playboy Audi A5 DTM (Audi Sport Team Rosberg)

Preparations for the DTM season are almost finished. What do you like the most about the new Audi A5 DTM?

However, it’s also clear that with such a completely new design like the A5 DTM we still have to get to know it better in certain situations and how it behaves with specific circuit peculiarities to be able to judge it exactly. This is why I’m looking forward to the start of the season. Continue reading ‘Audi Sports Edoardo Mortara talks DTM’

At Audi, the current DTM Champion, the “title defense” project is running at full stretch. A week before the homologation of the new Audi A5 DTM on March 1 the drivers and their assignment to the total of three Audi factory teams have been confirmed.

New car, new technology, new rules – particularly because the season opener at the Hockenheimring on April 29 is bringing a lot of changes to the most popular international touring car racing series and ringing in a completely new era in the DTM, Audi, the 1990, 1991, 2002, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011 DTM Champion, is banking on continuity. The long-standing partner teams, ABT Sportsline, Phoenix Racing and Team Rosberg, are fielding the seven Audi A5 DTM cars and the drivers taking the wheel of the seven Audi A5 DTM vehicles at the Hockenheim season opener on April 29 are well-known quantities too.

Powered by the V8 engine, the output will be around 460 horsepower. Continue reading ‘Mattias Ekstrom talks Audi A5 DTM and the 2012 DTM season’
