2021 DTM: with customer teams rather than works outfits

15.10.2020: In the duel with BMW, the brand from Ingolstadt has again secured the DTM triple to mark the end of the era of the two-litre turbocharged engines. For the DTM, that had its baptism of fire at Zolder in 1984, a new chapter starts in 2021 with powerful spor

In the duel with BMW, the brand from Ingolstadt has again secured the DTM triple to mark the end of the era of the two-litre turbocharged engines. For the DTM, that had its baptism of fire at Zolder in 1984, a new chapter starts in 2021 with powerful sports cars.




As a result, the works teams from Audi and BMW will be not be racing in the upcoming season. Instead, classic motorsport outfits will be filling the DTM grid with sports cars from various car manufacturers.



Among the strong customer teams that are already happily racing among the works outfits is the WRT team from Belgium. With the customer Audis, the three WRT privateer drivers Fabio Scherer (SUI), Harrison Newey (GBR) and Ferdinand Habsburg (AUT) impressively finished in fifth, sixth and seventh place last Sunday.




After the 75th pole position for BMW: Glock has still unfinished business at Zolder



And not just the WRT drivers are providing action in the high-class field. Ex-Formula 1 driver Timo Glock (GER), who ended Audi’s run of 20 consecutive fastest qualifying times with BMW’s 75th pole position in the DTM, and young Sheldon van der Linde (RSA) started from the front row of the grid for the 14th race of the season last Sunday.



21-year-old van der Linde, who, together with Auer, has scored the only race wins for the BMW M4 DTM so far this season, claimed his maiden pole position in the DTM at Zolder last year.



Benoît Tréluyer, meanwhile, will be competing in his first-ever DTM race at Zolder. Audi’s official replacement driver will be racing for the first time as his fellow Frenchman Loïc Duval will be participating in a ten-hour race for the American IMSA SportsCar Championship at the same time.



Tréluyer, a three-time Le Mans winner with Audi, will be racing alongside Mike Rockenfeller, second at Zolder most recently, with Audi Sport Team Phoenix. Tréluyer is bringing some experience: almost a year ago, he ended up sixth as the best-placed driver of a DTM car in the so-called Dream Race at Fuji (Japan). This spring, he drove the Audi RS 5 DTM during test sessions.
