From Monday to Thursday (June 8th-11th) the official ITR test will finally take place on the short connection of the Nurburgring. It is the second time for Fabio Scherer that he will be behind the wheel of his Audi RS 5 DTM of the WRT Team Audi Sport. Scherer completed his first DTM test in December in Jerez.

Fabio Scherer: “I look forward to finally get back in the car and to push my Audi RS 5 DTM to the limit. We are going through a very difficult time now, so we just need to stick to the rules, consider that the ITR tests will take place under a very special conditions due to COVID-19. So it will be a really good feeling to get started and to work with my team on the track for the first time after a six-month break.”

For Fabio, who celebrates his 21st birthday two days after the ITR-test, the test at the Nürburgring is special not only because of the long break. The DTM-rookie, who lives in Engelberg, is sitting in the fully branded WRT Audi for the first time.

“I look forward to this moment and I also would like to thank my sponsors – STOBAG and ATS Banding, not only for their many years of cooperation but also for keeping me on my toes during these difficult times. I am really excited and I think we can achieve a lot together with WRT Team Audi Sport.”

Physically, the DTM rookie feels well prepared. “Due to the special situation I’ve done almost more sports than usual. The only thing I missed out this season was skiing. But on the other hand I was running and cycling a lot. And I also spent a lot of time during the last weeks on the wakeboard.”
