Harrison Newey joins WRT for Nürburgring test

Harrison Newey, the son of legendary F1 engineer Adrian Newey, has joined independent Audi squad WRT for the final day of the official pre-season test at the Nürburgring.

“We had the opportunity to have him with us during the test, so we did it,” said a spokeswoman of WRT to Motorsport-Total.com.

The 21-year-old is behind the wheel of Ferdinand Habsburg’s Audi for the entire final day of testing while Habsburg will share car with team-mate Fabio Scherer.

Newey raced in several different single seater and GT series last year, including the Japanese Super Formula and the Asian Le Mans series.

The team has stated that Newey is not in for a race seat for the 2020 DTM season.
