Rutronik Racing is the first racing team in the ADAC GT Masters to announce its full driver line-up for 2021. In Dennis Marschall (24/Eggenstein) and newcomer Kim-Luis Schramm (23/Meuspath), the team has now confirmed the two men who will share the driving duties in its second Audi R8 LMS in the German GT Championship. The ADAC GT Masters kicks off its 15th season from 14th to 16th May in Oschersleben.
“I am delighted to be able to announce our crew for the second car, in the form of Dennis Marschall and Kim-Luis Schramm,” says team principal Fabian Plentz. “Dennis will be lining up in his third season with us. In Kim-Luis, we have a strong partner at his side. I think they are a good match and can definitely be up there challenging for top results.”
Marschall has been driving for the team from Remchingen since 2019 and last year won the Pirelli Pole Position Award on two occasions. The youngster caught the eye in his first season with Rutronik Racing, with impressive performances in qualifying and the races themselves. At the start of the year, he was signed up as a driver by Audi Sport customer racing. “I am super happy to be lining up for another year together with Rutronik Racing, and am obviously also looking forward to the additional challenges together with Audi Sport customer racing. I have known Kim-Luis for a long time and we have both come through the ADAC Formula system. Kim is also already very familiar with Audi, so I am confident about the year ahead.”
Kim-Luis Schramm is also looking forward to the new challenge, and is motivated ahead of the coming season: “I have a new team in Rutronik Racing. Together with Dennis, I want to challenge at the front of the field in the ADAC GT Masters. I already know the Audi well, and am confident after initial chats with the team and Dennis.”
Rutronik had already recently announced its first pair of drivers for 2020, in the form of Elia Erhart (32/Röttenbach) and Pierre Kaffer (44/Schlieren).
