Muller, 24, has been part of the Ingolstadt marque's DTM set-up since 2014 - taking a maiden win at Norisring earlier this year - and has also contested a number of Blancpain GT events with Audi machinery.

He will be part of the Gold category in the Macau event as the sole Phoenix entrant in a field of 23 drivers.

Audi's factory line-up, run by Team WRT, will feature Laurens Vanthoor and three-time event winner Edoardo Mortara, who will leave the Ingolstadt marque to race for rival Mercedes at the end of the season.
