Safety first: DTM-event in the Lausitz cancelled for torrential rain
By Harald Bloche -

Because of torrential rain and, as a result, dangerous aquaplaning, the sixth event of the DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) at the new EuroSpeedway Lausitz was cancelled. The first of two races had been started behind the safety-car, but was stopped after eight slow laps under caution. At 15:45, race director Roland Bruynseraede decided, together with the motorsport directors of the manufacturers, not to start the race anymore and to cancel the event.
