First DTM title for Timo Scheider
DTM: The most extensive motorsport programme in the history of AUDI AG is now the most successful one as well: following the triumph at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the title wins at the Le Mans series in North America and Europe, Timo Scheider with a victory at the finale at Hockenheim also secured the title in the DTM.
In front of a record crowd of 165,000 spectators Timo Scheider held up to the pressure of his rival Paul di Resta. With an absolutely flawless drive he impressively clinched the first DTM title in his career. The second-best Audi driver at Hockenheim was Tom Kristensen, who made an impressive recovery from seventh to fifth place. With seventh place in the race, last year's champion Mattias Ekstrom secured third place in the overall classification.
