...at Red Bull Ring with drivers Nick Cassidy and Felipe Fraga on September 23-25

 


 
The showdown in Spielberg marks the penultimate weekend on the DTM calendar, and with the championship still up for grabs, teams and drivers will be desperate to make a move before the season finale. Expect high-speed action that’s flat out and all in.


 

With the milestone of Nick Cassidy’s maiden DTM win at Spa-Francorchamps not even two weeks old, the New Zealand driver and his Red Bull AlphaTauri AF Corse teammate Felipe Fraga of Brazil look forward to the championship’s seventh race weekend with “a lot of confidence” ¬– and they’ll have the support of a home crowd as well. Here’s what you need to know:



· Fielding two drivers who are both in their first full DTM season, Red Bull AlphaTauri AF Corse comes into this home race on the ascent. On September 11, Cassidy delivered a masterful performance at the legendary Circuit de Spa Francorchamps, driving his #37 Ferrari with the livery of Red Bull’s premium fashion brand, AlphaTauri, to his career-first win in the high-powered GT3 series.



· Behind of the wheel of the team’s #74 car with the Red Bull livery, Fraga has captured two impressive podiums this season, including his maiden DTM victory at the Norisring, and he finished solidly in the points for both races at Spa.



· Ascent will be key at Spielberg. With spectacular views of Austria’s Styrian mountains, the Red Bull Ring is positioned nearly 700 m above sea level, and a special feature of the 4.318-km track is a vertical difference of 65 m. The maximum incline of 12 percent is a test of power for the machines, while the maximum descent of 9.3 percent propels a nerve-tingling rush to the finish line.



· The recent success of Red Bull AlphaTauri AF Corse at Spa – a track that also included significant changes in elevation – may bode well for the team, as well as the fact that in 2021 their same Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020 racecar swept both wins of the DTM weekend at Spielberg.



· The overall DTM driver’s podium – including the championship itself – is still too close to call, and the racing in Austria will be intense as it provides all contenders a last opportunity to leap up the leaderboard before October’s season finale. In the team standings, a hungry Red Bull AlphaTauri AF Corse is currently in fourth place, just 16 points away from a spot in the top three.



· Cassidy, 28, says, “I’m really excited to be heading for our home race at the Red Bull Ring. It’s one of the tracks on the calendar that in theory should be great for us. We’ll attack like always, and coming in with a lot of confidence from Spa is really nice as well. So we’ll do our best and hopefully get back on the podium.”



· Fraga, 27, says, “We really want to put some results together this weekend, and we’ve tested at Spielberg, so I hope we can get up to speed quick. I can’t wait to drive a Red Bull car at the Red Bull Ring!”
The DTM weekend at the Red Bull Ring features two sprint races of 55 minutes plus one lap, starting at 1:30pm local time on Saturday and Sunday, September 24 and 25, 2022.
