From Tuesday to Thursday, Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz prepared for the new DTM season in a joint test at Monteblanco (Spain). Audi Sport deployed two test versions of the Audi RS 5 DTM that were driven by Jamie Green and Mattias Ekström. Audi Sport’s test team reeled off about 3,200 kilometers on the three days in optimum external conditions. On Wednesday alone, the two Audi drivers combined did more than 400 laps: Ekström 206 and Green 200. On two of the three test days, Ekström set the day’s best time as well. From April 5 to 8, another pre-season test will be held at Hockenheim in which all eight Audi drivers are going to participate.
