Jandelsbrunn, 19 April 2024. Hardly any other form of sport has noted such an increase in interest over the last few years as the popular GT3 race series. KNAUS will be there as the main sponsor of the long‐established team Emil Frey Racing for the 2024 DTM season, which starts in Oschersleben on 26 April. The team, based in Safenwil, Switzerland, has over twelve years of experience racing in this category.

With the Ferrari 296 GT3, the team is using one of the most high‐profile racing cars available today. The top Italian sports car has 608 hp and a torque of 712 Nm on its turbo‐charged V6 engine, giving it every chance of finishing on top of the podium. Its performance gives it every opportunity of seamlessly continuing Ferrari’s history of major successes in motor sport.

28‐year‐old Jack Aitken will take his place at the wheel. The British driver has been involved in motor sport since the age of seven. He first became active in Formula sport in 2012 and even started in Formula 1 four years ago. His DTM Ferrari will bear the prominent KNAUS lettering. Aitken will race with the start number 14 – which is the lucky number of team boss Lorenz Frey‐Hilti.

For Lorenz Frey‐Hilti, it was important that the perspectives from this new partnership between Emil Frey Racing and KNAUS were very much in alignment. He emphasises: „We are delighted that KNAUS has become a partner of Emil Frey Racing and also shares exactly the same values as us.‟ He then noted what both have in common: „Just like ourselves, KNAUS focuses on quality and passion, on tradition and state‐of‐the‐art technology. I am looking forward to plenty of shared success with KNAUS this year.‟

This was underlined by Board member Gerd Adamietzki (CSO),  responsible for sales at Knaus Tabbert AG: „KNAUS cannot wait for the start of the DTM season together with Emil Frey Racing. Our Ferrari 296 GT3 is not only fast, but the KNAUS swallows make it striking and distinctive. I’d like to wish our driver, Jack Aitken, the best of luck in all his races.”

The DTM races for the 2024 season take place on eight different weekends. Six of the events take place on German tracks, whilst one takes place in the Netherlands, and one in Austria:

  • 26 – 28/04/2024 Motorsport Arena Oschersleben
