Mortara considers Audi DTM future
2 November 2010 – Edoardo Mortara looks forward to a DTM test drive this off-season, with the touring car outing coming as a reward after picking up the Formula 3 Euro Series title. Furthermore, the Geneva-born 23-year-old is now considering a full-time role in the German championship.
“I'll try to give my very best," he said. “My Formula 3 Euro series season was really good and now I want to confirm this performance in the cockpit of a DTM car.”
Having contested a six-hour race at Brno last month, Edoardo is now poised for a very different experience.
“Both the car and the tyres weren't the ones I'm going to use during the test but the race offered me the chance of familiarising myself with such a touring car, nevertheless,” he continued. “Furthermore, my participation in the six-hour race definitely was a great present from Volkswagen and Audi.”
“DTM is a highly professional racing series and a manufacturer such as Audi offers its drivers numerous possibilities,” he began to sum up. “Being a part of the Audi squad sometime would be great.”
