Audi have confirmed the six drivers that will take part in a DTM Series rookie test for them.

The sextet is headlined by FIA World Rallycross Championship race winner Andreas Bakkerud. 

Bakkerud, has been a regular WRX frontrunner since the inception of the series back in 2014.

The Norwegian, spent this year racing for two-time DTM champion Mattias Eksröm‘s Audi backed EKS team.

Benoit Treluyer, who won a FIA World Endurance Championship with Audi as well as a trio of Le Mans 24 Hours, is also taking part.

GT and touring car racer Frederic Vervisch will also test, having had numerous outings with Audi customer Team WRT – who will join the DTM as a customer team in 2019.

WRT will be present at the test which takes place at Circuito de Jerez on 10-12 December.

Joining the three, will be three younger drivers who will sample the Audi RS5 DTM.

FIA European Formula 3 Championship race winner Ferdinand Habsburg and series rookie Jonathan Aberdein – who scored three podiums in his debut campaign – will take part.

Mattia Drudi, finished runner up to Lance Stroll in Italian F4 back in 2014 and has since gone on to become a front runner in Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.

Who will make up the Audi 2019 race squad is still uncertain as its drivers are yet to confirmed.
