Audi have announced that Loïc Duval and Rene Rast will complete their six-car lineup for the 2017 DTM season.

Duval and Rast join Mattias Ekström, Jamie Green, Nico Müller and Mike Rockenfeller at the manufacturer, while Miguel Molina, Adrien Tambay, and Mercedes-bound Edoardo Mortara have all left.

"We’re happy that our driver squad for the new DTM season is complete," said Audi Sport's DTM chief Dieter Gass.

"In Mattias and Mike, we have two DTM Champions on board who in my book will be among the favourites next year, not least due to the new rules and tires. Jamie, no doubt, is one of the strongest campaigners in the DTM. Nico convinced us with consistently good performances and his first DTM victory last season. Not only on delivering a strong race in the finale at Hockenheim, René has shown that he’s also going to be in contention at the very front in the DTM. And in Loïc, we’ve integrated one of our best drivers from the Le Mans program into our DTM squad. I’m convinced that we’re in a top position with our driver lineup for the 2017 season and have six strong characters in our team."

Duval previously competed for Audi in the FIA World Endurance Championship, while Rast stood in for Audi stalwart Mattias Ekstrom at two DTM rounds last season ass the Swede successfully mounted a challenge for the FIA World Rallycross title.
