Almost half a year after his first test Fabio Scherer was able to jump in his Audi RS 5 DTM again. For the 21-years old DTM-rookie the season finally kicked off when the teams were allowed to take part at the official ITR-tests. From Monday to Thursday Scherer completed a total of nearly 400 laps in the freshly foiled car of WRT Team Audi Sport.

“It felt good to finally sit in the car again and work with the team,” says Scherer. “Especially the last three months were tough. But now I’m looking forward to the season opener on my favourite track in Spa-Francorchamps on the first weekend of August.”

Scherer, who sat in the fully branded STOBAG/ATS-Banding-Audi for the first time, ran an extensive program at the Nürburgring. “For me as a rookie, every mile counts. I already had a good feeling during my last test in Jerez. And also now I feel very comfortable in the car and in my team WRT.”

The test went smoothly apart from a technical issue on day three. Because the problem on Scherer’s car couldn’t be fixed on place the Lucerne native from Engelberg switched to the Audi test car on day four. “This was a good opportunity for me to compare the two cars,” says Fabio. “We now know where we need to improve until the first race and will work hard to solve these tasks. I learned a lot during testing and I am very confident for the season opener. I can’t wait until we finally get going.”
