DTM 2024: EDAG Group and SSR Performance once again take Lamborghini to the starting line

A successful alliance built on years of vehicle development and professional driving skills continues.

EDAG Group and SSR Performance continue their technical partnership.

The EDAG Group is to support the SSR Team as its technical partner during the DTM – for the third time in a row. The racing team will be represented this year by Mirko Bortolotti and Nicki Thiim, who will be making his debut. The season kicks off at the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben between April 26 and 28, 2024. Following last year's success, the team will be starting the season with two Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2s. SSR Performance finished the 2023 DTM season as Vice Champion, official Lamborghini driver Bortolotti won the DTM Vice Championship title with SSR Performance this year, and Nicki Thiim is a two-time GTE Pro champion in the World Endurance Championship.

"High-performance vehicles have always been the driving force behind innovations in series development - either be reducing weight, using new materials or through hybridization. Future technologies are often tested first in motorsport, especially in the areas of weight, performance and aerodynamics," explains Harald Keller, COO of EDAG Engineering GmbH. "We are delighted to have SSR Performance as a long-standing partner with whom we can continuously further development and celebrate our successes."

The EDAG Group will be expanding its competencies in the field of vehicle dynamics simulation this year. This May, the Group will be opening the EDAG Zero Prototype Lab in Wolfsburg, a simulation center for the comprehensive testing of vehicles, their functions and their driving dynamics in realistic driving situations. The EDAG Group will be focusing on the latest technological developments and using the Zero Prototype Lab not only for motorsport purposes, but also for complete vehicle development.

"We are delighted to be working with the EDAG Group again this year," says Stefan Schlund, Managing Director of SSR Performance GmbH. "Our collaboration has shown that we can rely on EDAG as a technical partner and that by working together, we achieve the best results."
