Phoenix Racing ranks among the most experienced teams in the DTM. The squad based in Meuspath has been on the grid of the popular touring car racing series ever since the DTM returned in 2000. Since 2006, Phoenix Racing and Audi Sport have been partners in the DTM. In 2011 and 2013, Audi Sport Team Phoenix celebrated the DTM drivers’ title.
Since the 2013 season, Phoenix has been fielding the Audi RS 5 DTM. In the debut year, Mike Rockenfeller clinched the drivers’ title and the squad triumphed in the teams’ classification. In 2019 the DTM and Audi are ringing in a new technological era. Thanks to turbocharged engines and completely reworked aerodynamics, fans can look forward to an additional 100hp.
With the Audi R8 LMS GT3, Phoenix Racing has been able to celebrate several race victories. Twice, the team has won the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring (2012, 2014) with the GT3 race car.
The Audi R8 LMS GT4 is an important part of the Phoenix Racing story: After the team played a key role in developing the car, it also celebrated its first major success with a one-two victory at the 24 Hours of Dubai 2018.
Passion, teamwork, meticulous attention to detail. Since its formation in 1999, Phoenix Racing has evolved into a well-established quantity in international motorsport. Be it in the DTM, in GT racing series or in endurance racing – team boss Ernst Moser’s squad can look back on numerous successes and milestones.
“We love challenge and competition. And we love success. That’s our passion and motivation. That’s what drives us.“
