We’ve reached the half-way mark in the official ITR tests at Hockenheim. On Wednesday 6th April 2016, the Mercedes-AMG DTM team continued with the final week of testing before the race at the same venue which will open the season. Lucas Auer, Maximilian Götz, Daniel Juncadella and Esteban Ocon were on testing duties in their Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM cars as they were on Tuesday. On Wednesday, they jointly posted 408 laps (1,866 km) of the historic 4.574-kilometre circuit which will host the first race weekend of the new season on the weekend of 6th-8th May. Auer, Götz, Juncadella and DTM rookie Ocon covered a total of 767 laps over the first two days of testing which equates to 3,508 km in all.
This was the last day of testing for the four Mercedes-AMG DTM drivers before the start of the season. Their Mercedes colleagues, Paul Di Resta, Gary Paffett, Christian Vietoris and Robert Wickens will take out the four Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM cars being used for testing on Thursday and Friday.
