Both drivers are new to the Westphalia-based outfit. 31-year-old Vervisch is a member of the Audi Sport customer racing squad and has competed in numerous GT and TCR races as a standard-bearer for the brand in recent years. His most recent competitive outing in the ADAC GT Masters was in 2016 as a Montaplast by Land-Motorsport driver - also at the wheel of an Audi R8 LMS.
"We are pleased to announce the first of two strong duos in the shape of Frédéric and Nikolaj," says team boss Frank Aust. "We are convinced that this combination of precocious talent and an experienced professional will be very effective. Our preparations are already in full swing, and soon we will be releasing more details about our plans and driver line-up for 2018."
