DTM 2023: EDAG Group and SSR Performance in the line-up with Lamborghini
The EDAG Group is to support the SSR Team as its technical partner during the DTM – for the second time in a row. The racing team consists of Mirko Bortolotti, Franck Perera and Alessio Deledda. The first race will take place in Oschersleben, Saxony-Anhalt, on May 25 - 28. The team will be starting the season with three new Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2s. After their successful debut last year and their victory in the race in Spa-Francorchamps, SSR will be starting their second year in the DTM this 2023 season.
"The kind of high-performance vehicles we see in motorsport have always been innovation drivers for series development – in terms of weight reduction, the use of new materials, hybridization or in the development and use of e-fuels. Future technologies are often first tested on the race track, especially with regard to vehicle attributes such as weight, power and aerodynamics," explains Harald Keller, COO of EDAG Engineering GmbH. "We are pleased to have found such a professional and dedicated team as SSR Performance for a technical partnership."
The EDAG Group has long-standing international development expertise in the mobility sector, and, as a premium engineering partner, serves many well-known vehicle manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers worldwide. Founded in 1969, the company pursues an all-round engineering approach for vehicles, production plants, and also in the field of software and digitalization. Always with the ultimate goal of proactively developing concepts and solutions for the mobility of the future. In the high performance sector, too, the EDAG Group can look back on years of experience.
Stefan Schlund, Managing Director of SSR Performance GmbH, is certain: With the continuation of the technical partnership with the EDAG Group, the 2023 DTM season will once again be a joint success: "With the EDAG Group, we have for more than two years had a reliable and competent partner at our side. We are really looking forward to further developing this strong cooperation."
