An historic moment in testing at Jerez de la Frontera: on Monday 30th November, 2015 ADAC GT Masters champions Sebastian Asch and Luca Ludwig got their first chance to test a DTM car at the track in southern Spain. This was a reward for their achievements on the AMG Customer Sports Programme. The test took place in the presence of their famous fathers, Roland Asch and Klaus Ludwig, who drove for Mercedes-Benz in the DTM during the nineties. Ludwig won two of his three DTM titles for the three-pointed star in 1992 and 1994. In Jerez, both fathers returned to the cockpit of a DTM car for a few laps. Sebastian Asch and Luca Ludwig jointly won the 2015 ADAC GT Masters in a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3. They have the combined experience gained from 76 races in the race gullwing. The DTM test was in recognition of their achievements on the AMG Customer Sports Programme.
This week, six more young talents – Maro Engel, Jazeman Jaafar, Mikkel Jensen, Marvin Kirchhöfer, Kevin Magnussen and Raffaele Marciello – will get the opportunity to test the Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM during the Young Driver tests scheduled for December 1st-3rd.
