DTM countdown: Oliver Jarvis follows in Tom Kristensen’s footsteps
- Eleven weeks to go before the 2010 DTM season starts
- Great chance for Audi’s youngest “factory” driver
- Jarvis to succeed Tom Kristensen in Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline
There is one Audi driver who is looking forward to the opener of the new DTM season at the Hockenheimring on April 25 with particularly eager anticipation: Oliver Jarvis. Jarvis, who at the age 26 is the youngest Audi “factory” driver, will take the place of Le Mans record winner Tom Kristensen in Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline to make his debut in the most popular international touring car series in a current-specification Audi A4 after a two-year “apprenticeship” in a prior-spec model. This automatically moves him into the group of candidates for the title.
