Audi DTM driver Edoardo Mortara will aim for a fifth Macau victory in as many years when he takes part in the grand prix’s GT Cup race next month.
The Italian, who drives for Team Rosberg in the German-based series, has won the race for GT3 machinery for the past two years in an Audi R8 LMS ultra. Prior to that he won back to back Macau Grands Prix in Formula 3 machinery in 2009-10.
Other big names taking part in the race are five-time DTM champion Bernd Schneider, who has won the 24-hour races at Spa, the Nurburgring and Dubai this year.
Schneider and Thomas Jager will both drive Mercedes SLS AMGs fielded by Australia’s Erebus squad.
Factory Aston Martin driver Stefan Mucke will race a Vantage GT3, as will AMR team boss John Gaw, while Brits Danny Watts and Richard Meins will both be in United Autosport-run McLaren MP4-12C GT3s.
