After Audi Sport Team Rosberg with Jamie Green just barely missed clinching the DTM championship title last year, it is regarded as one of the favorites in 2016.
Four victories and second place in the drivers’ classification: The tenth season of Audi Sport Team Rosberg in the DTM has been the most successful one so far for the squad headed by Team Director Arno Zensen which has been active as a factory-backed team for Audi in the DTM since 2006.
In total, the team looks back on a more than 20-year history. The former Formula One World Champion Keke Rosberg formed Team Rosberg in 1994 and was at the wheel himself in the squad’s first season. Many prominent drivers such as Klaus Ludwig, Hans Stuck, JJ Lehto or Gary Paffett competed for the team. Keke Rosberg’s son, Nico, made his first steps in racing in his father’s team as well.
Arno Zensen takes care of the outfit’s daily business. Keke Rosberg stays in the background, but can occasionally be found at the control center, providing input.
For the 2016 season, Audi Sport Team Rosberg in Francesco Nenci got a new Technical Director on board with important know-how from Formula One.
With its subsidiary, TRE, Team Rosberg at its headquarters in Neustadt an der Weinstraße, in addition to racing, specializes in engineering services for the automotive industry.
