It is confirmed that Nick Cassidy will drive an AF Corse Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo in the German DTM Series. Cassidy will be part of a two-car Red Bull team, alongside Alex Albon and fellow Kiwi Liam Lawson.
Red Bull’s most recent DTM involvement was with two-time champion Mattias Ekström during his last years in the category. Now Liam Lawson (NZL) will run a full season in one Red Bull cockpit, Alexander Albon (THA) and Nick Cassidy (NZL) will share driving duties in a car carrying the colors of Red Bull’s Premium fashion brand, AlphaTauri
After winning two races in F3 last season, Lawson will run a dual program in 2021, including F2 as well as the full DTM season.
“GT racing is going to be very new to me,” commented Lawson. “I am super excited for this opportunity in such a high-level series with world class drivers, and to team up with someone who has top experience like Alex, I’m also super excited to drive the Ferrari.”
DTM series manager Gerhard Berger commented, saying, “Both Red Bull and Ferrari are leading global players that represent absolute success in the world of motorsports and beyond. We are very delighted to unite these two top brands in a unique project in the DTM, where they will join forces in the effort to win the prestigious championship.”
Berger continued, “The unprecedented collaboration of the three high-class drivers is particularly promising: Formula 1 driver and podium finisher Alex Albon, GT professional and multiple race-winner Nick Cassidy and young talent Liam Lawson in one team – it is the perfect mix, which will keep the excitement level high in the upcoming DTM season.”
