German Mike Rockenfeller, the 2013 DTM Champion, and the Frenchman Loïc Duval, who is tackling his second DTM season, will race for Audi Sport Team Phoenix in 2018. In Lanzarote, Audi’s DTM campaigners prepared for the new DTM season in optimum outdoor conditions.
Swimming, strength training, running, cycling and plenty of fun: Under the direction of Le Mans record winner Tom Kristensen and the supervision of team physician Dr. Vincenzo Tota, the six DTM drivers spent a week of training including a large variety of activities. Together with their fellow drivers from Formula E, the team principals and Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass, they traveled to Club La Santa in Lanzarote, a facility which is popular as a training camp with professional athletes from around the world.
A total of 20 races at ten events in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom are scheduled this year. The start of the season will take place from 4 to 6 May in Hockenheim.
