Reigning DTM champion Rene Rast joins Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler to close out the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship.

Born in Minden, Germany, Rene Rast started karting professionally at the age of 10, competing in national competitions before winning the 2001 North German ICA Junior Kartcup. A year later he won the German ICA Junior Kartcup.

Audi and Rast have had a long-standing and successful partnership in DTM. In his first full campaign in the German touring car championship in 2017, Rast's consistency across the year saw him secure his first title in his rookie season.

The following year he ended second in the DTM standings despite dominating  in the closing stages with six victories in a row. In 2019, Rast reclaimed his DTM title with a commanding performance across 18 rounds with seven wins and six podiums.

Other racing accolades include a run of championship wins in the Porsche Supercup between 2010 and 2012, endurance victories in 2014 in both the 24 Hours Nurburgring around the gruelling Nordschleife and the Spa 24 Hours, and overall honours in the 2014 ADAC GT Masters.

Jumping into the vacant Audi e-tron FE06 for the remainder of the 2019/20 season, the German ace has already had a taste of all-electric street racing, having deputised for Antonio Felix da Costa at Super Aguri in the 2016 Berlin E-Prix.
