Another Audi one-two-three-four win at Zandvoort

DTM: Audi showed a dominant performance at the sixth DTM round at Zandvoort and, like last year, celebrated a one-two-three-four victory in the Netherlands. It was the new Audi A4 DTM's best result so far and Audi's 45th victory in the DTM. One day before his 30th birthday, title defender Mattias Ekstrom celebrated his second exploit of the season, after winning the season opener at Hockenheim. Following the twelfth DTM triumph of his career, the two-time champion is now the best Audi driver in DTM history. Scheider extended his lead in the standings from one to five points. He is followed in the championship by Mattias Ekstrom, who bumped Mercedes driver Jamie Green from second place.

Mistakes prevent Audi triumph at Lime Rock

ALMS: Audi lost all hopes to take outright win in round five of the American Le Mans Series at Lime Rock (US State of Connecticut) owing to small errors. The diesel sports cars were the fastest cars in the field but at the end of a thrilling race, Team Audi Sport North America had to settle for fourth place. A time penalty cost Lucas Luhr/Marco Werner one lap but they won the LM P1 class and finished fourth overall. Their team mates Dindo Capello/Emanuele Pirro took a commanding lead in the first hour of the race before becoming involved into an accident.

JTCC: Mixed weekend for Reinberth

JTCC: Whilst his mentor Mattias Ekstrom triumphed at Zandvoort, Simon Reinberth who is supported by the DTM champion in the Swedish Junior Touring Car Championship had a weekend of mixed results. The youngster who is only 16 years old finished 12th and 14th at Falkenberg in his Audi A3. Just when a points finish was in sight in heat one, Reinberth became a victim of aquaplaning as did many competitors when they were caught out suddenly by heavy rain.
