Tresor Orange 1 defended themselves at the difficult weekend of DTM at Red Bull Ring

September 24, 2023

24.09.2023 - A weekend less satisfying than expected characterized Tresor Orange 1's involvement at the Red Bull Ring (A), in the penultimate round of the DTM 2023.

The Italian team entered the event with two Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II cars, the #40 driven by Mattia Drudi (RSM) and the #83 by Patric Niederhauser (CH).

After the free practice sessions, the Q1 took place in changing weather conditions with rain and red flag interruptions, making things more challenging. Drudi concluded the session in fourteenth place with a time of 1'37.652s, slightly ahead of Niederhauser who qualified fifteenth with a time of 1'37.742s.

Race one also took place under variable weather conditions, with light rain prompting almost all drivers to start with rain tyres. The track gradually dried, with Drudi interpreting the situation better and finishing sixteenth overall. Niederhauser, on the other hand, finished in the twenty-third position.

In Sunday morning's Q2, the Tresor Orange 1 drivers could not fully express their potential. Drudi finished twenty-seventh with a time of 1'28.898s and Niederhauser ended up twenty-second with a time of 1'28.360s.

Starting from the back of the grid did not make things easier in race two. Niederhauser managed to gain some positions and finished seventeenth, while Drudi was forced to retire in the second part of the race due to a technical issue.

Ferdinando Geri (Team Principal):
“It has been another challenging weekend that did not reflect our true potential. The mixed weather conditions on Saturday made this event more challenging, but we are still further behind where we would like to be. There is still the round at Hockenheim where we will try to capitalize on the experience of the entire season to finish the championship with a positive result”.

Tresor Orange 1's DTM campaign will conclude on October 20-22 at the Hockenheimring.
