Audi DTM outfit Team Rosberg has revealed the driver squad for its return to the ADAC GT Masters series after a seven-year hiatus, with a pair of Lamborghini Huracan GT3s.
For its return, the Rhineland-Palatinate-based outfit will be pinning their hopes on the driver pairings of Michele Beretta and Aaro Vainio and of Jonathan Judek and Jimmy Eriksson.
“Motorsport is constantly changing, and new and exciting projects are constantly coming along,” says team boss Arno Zensen. “Successful as we have been in the DTM over the past few years, we also want to show what we are capable of in the ADAC GT Masters.
“I think everyone realises that this is initially going to be a learning process.” Team Rosberg last competed in the ADAC GT Masters in the 2009 and 2010 seasons, securing one win and several podium finishes.
“Michele and Aaro are very experienced racers despite their young age,” added Zensen, who runs the team with founder Keke Rosberg, both pictured above, “but even our youngster Jonathan will certainly rise to the challenge and score us some points. Jimmy Eriksson is just the right mentor who can teach him a lot.
“Obviously, you should never underestimate the opposition – there are some well-known teams and very capable drivers on the ADAC GT Masters grid this year. We nonetheless hope that we can cause the occasional upset at the front of the field.”
The 2018 ADAC GT Masters season will open at Motorsport Arena Oschersleben on the weekend of 13th-15th April.
