In Hockenheim (October 7-9), the CV Performance Group will report back in the DTM Trophy. In a guest start in the ITR’s junior series, the team from Niederzissen will field two Mercedes-AMG GT4s. In 2021, Christian Voß’ racing team already competed in the series and only missed out on the title with Will Tregurtha in the final round of the season at the Norisring in Nuremberg.
Lucas Mauron from Switzerland and the US-American Phillippe Denes will pilot the two cars at the race weekend at the Hockenheimring.
The 24-year-old Swiss Mauron already competed in the racing series in 2020 and 2021. For various Audi teams he celebrated four race series in the production-based GT racing series so far. In 2022, the former Lamborghini junior driver will be on the Mercedes-AMG GT4, which he will pilot in the GTC Race. The Swiss also completed a start for the CV Performance Group in the ADAC GT4 Germany at the Nürburgring.
Phillippe Denes is a Californian with Hungarian roots. He returned to real-world motorsport in 2022 and successfully competes in the GTC Race with CV Performance Group. Before that, he was active in simracing in the past years. Before dedicating himself to virtual motorsport, he raced in the American junior series of the Road to Indy platform and was able to gain his first experience in GT racing in the International GT Open and the 24H Series.
Team owner Christian Voß: “We are looking forward to our return to the DTM Trophy! We are entering two talented drivers, I am confident that they will play a good role at Hockenheim.”
The two DTM Trophy races will be recorded at 15:15 on Saturday and Sunday. DTM TV will broadcast both races in a livestream. In addition, the DTM streaming platform will also broadcast both qualifying sessions on race days as well as the second practice session on Friday live.
