Tresor Orange1 Racing to debut in the DTM 2023 at Oschersleben

May 24, 2023

24.05.2023 - The Tresor Competition and Orange1 campaign in DTM 2023 will kick off next weekend at the Motorsport Arena in Oschersleben.

Tresor Orange1 Racing team is already contesting the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS, and is currently on the track at Spa-Francorchamps for the tests leading up to the Crowdstrike Spa 24H. As announced in recent weeks, the team will also participate in the DTM season this year.

Two Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II cars will be fielded on the 3.696-kilometre track located near Magdeburg. The #40 car will be entrusted to Mattia Drudi (ITA), while car #83 will be driven by Patric Niederhauser (CH).

Already teammates at Tresor Competition in the Joburg Kyalami 9 Hour, where they finished third overall, Drudi and Niederhauser will compete in what is recognized in the motorsport world as one of the most spectacular and long-standing categories also after embracing the GT3 technical regulations in 2021.

The racetrack of Oschersleben extends to just over 3.5 kilometres. The long straight leads to the technical Hotel right-hander, which is almost like a long hairpin. The next section is highly technical until McDonald's, where the track becomes faster with the succession of Shell, Amman and Bauer Kurve corners that lead to the Zeppelin braking zone, a good point for overtaking or getting a tow before plunging back onto the straight.

The weekend will start on Friday with two practice sessions scheduled at 12:15 and 16:35. On Saturday, the drivers will participate in Q1 at 9:45 and race one at 13:30. The same schedule applies to Sunday. The races will be broadcast live on Prosieben and Sport1 in Germany, while the official DTM channel will provide continuous video updates from the circuits.

Ferdinando Geri (Team Principal, Tresor Orange1 Racing):
“This year's commitment to DTM enhances our collaboration with Orange1, which has already allowed us to achieve satisfaction in the GTWC, not least with the overall podium at Brands Hatch last week. Here, it will be a completely different story as the races have always been much more intense and there is less room for strategy. DTM is a series where you need to go fast from the first to the last lap, but thanks to all the team members and our drivers, I am confident that we will be able to interpret this new challenge in the best possible way”.
