Tresor Orange 1 in the top ten of DTM at Sachsenring

September 10, 2023

10.09.2023 - Tresor Orange 1 concluded the weekend at Sachsenring, the sixth round of the 2023 DTM season, with a top-ten finish.

The Italian team is participating in the full season with two Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II cars branded as Orange 1, driven by Mattia Drudi (#40) from San Marino and Patric Niederhauser (#83) from Switzerland.

On the challenging German track, after the setup work done during the free practice sessions, Niederhauser set a time of 1'18.188s in Q1, placing thirteenth. Meanwhile, Drudi struggled a bit more to put together his best lap and finished twenty-second with a time of 1'18.557s.

Motivated to recover during the first race, both drivers started the challenge with determination. However, due to sudden technical issues, both cars were forced to retire.

In Q2, held on Sunday morning on a dry track, Niederhauser once again had a good start, finishing the session in twelfth place with a time of 1'18.246s. Drudi, on the other hand, brought the #40 car to the twenty-fourth position with a time of 1'18.906s.

In the second race, the Swiss driver managed his pace well in car #Tresor Orange 1 in the top ten of DTM at Sachsenring83, climbing two positions and crossing the finish line in P10. A post-race penalty to one of the competitors allowed Niederhauser to move up one more spot, finishing ninth in the final standings.

Unfortunately, luck was not on Drudi's side, as after starting his comeback, he had to stop again due to technical issues.

Ferdinando Geri (Team Principal):
“The weekend has been challenging and less positive than expected, and it is disappointing to have had to stop the cars on three occasions when we could have made up positions. We knew that the Sachsenring track would be tough, but a top-ten finish was a desirable result with both drivers. Therefore, we will work to try to achieve better results in the last two events”.

Tresor Orange 1's commitment to the German GT series will continue from September 22nd to 24th with the event in Austria at the Red Bull Ring.
