René Rast leaves nothing to chance while preparing for his first DTM season. As often as possible, the Audi driver takes the wheel of a virtual RS 5 DTM. A simulator from Fanatec on which the “Project Cars” simulation is run has been set up at his home in Bregenz. Rast is supporting the E-Racing project as a “handling consultant” and is now benefiting in the DTM from his side job as well: “The DTM car requires a driving style I haven’t experienced in any other car. Driving that way on the simulator every day means that I’m storing the experience in my mind, so I don’t have to start from scratch when I sit in the real RS 5 DTM.”
