Jake Dennis has been revealed as the second driver in R-Motorsport’s DTM lineup following the announcement of Paul Di Resta earlier on Thursday.
The 23-year-old will drive one of R-Motorsport’s Aston Martin Vantage DTMs this season after joining the team for its Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup program last year.
“Joining the DTM is a major step up in my career,” said Dennis.
““It’s an enormous challenge which I readily accept, because I know that I must go up against tough opposition in order to prove myself and make progress as a driver at a high level.
“The DTM is the ideal environment for that, and I can’t wait to get the season started.”
Dennis took part in two Formula 1 tests with Red Bull Racing last year, and got his first taste of DTM in the young driver test at Jerez in December, driving a Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM.
“Jake is very talented. He has already shown that previously in his GT3 races for R-Motorsport,” said team principal Dr. Florian Kamelger.
“He achieved consistently good results last year and is now a regular member of our team. I know what he can do, so I think he will quickly make his mark in the DTM.”
R-Motorsport will officially unveil its team and new cars in a launch event on Wednesday.
