- Swede to concentrate on FIA World RX commitment in 2018
- Dutchman Robin Frijns promoted from GT program
- Remainder of driver squad unchanged for DTM 2018
It marks the end of an era: After 17 years, 195 races, 23 victories and two championship titles, factory driver Mattias Ekström ends his DTM career, which means that Audi’s most successful DTM campaigner to date is leaving this racing series. In 2018, Ekström will concentrate on the factory-backed commitment of his team, EKS, in the World Rallycross Championship. The new member of Audi’s DTM driver squad is Dutchman Robin Frijns.
