The Mercedes-AMG DTM Team are giving six talented drivers the chance to test the 2015 DTM championship-winning car at the young driver tests in Jerez de la Frontera this week. Testing begins Tuesday 1 December and ends Thursday 3 December. A familiar face, Maro Engel, will be back in a DTM car this week. The German lined up with Mercedes-Benz in the DTM for four years during 2008-2011. Last week, he won the inaugural FIA GT World Cup on the legendary Guia street circuit in Macau at the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3.
Fellow German Marvin Kirchhöfer competed in Abu Dhabi last weekend in the season finale of the GP3 series which was run under the Formula 1 banner. The ex-Formula ADAC and German Formula 3 Champion finished his second GP3 season in third place overall with ART Grand Prix.
