Benoît Tréluyer will make his DTM début in the second DTM event at Zolder this weekend, with Duval competing in the American IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
Whilst Tréluyer has previously raced one of Audi’s RS5 DTM cars, having taken part in last year’s Super GT x DTM ‘Dream Race’, he has yet to take the start in a bona-fide DTM race.
The 43-year-old has extensive experience racing with the Ingolstadt marque, having competed in the FIA World Endurance Championship between 2012 and 2016 with Audi and raced in the Le Mans 24 Hours with the brand between 2010 and 2016.
In recent years, Tréluyer has competed in Italian GTs and selected Blancpain GT Series races, always in Audi machinery.
Tréluyer was Audi’s best-placed driver in last year’s joint race with Super GT at Fuji, finishing sixth.
He has also driven the latest RS5 in DTM testing with Audi in the Spring.
