Audi clinches double lead in the DTM

DTM: In a spectacular touring car race at Brands Hatch (England), Audi captured the double lead in the DTM: Martin Tomczyk and Mattias Ekstrom in the two Red Bull Audi A4 DTM cars fielded by Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline clinched places two and three although, due to previous exploits, they were driving the heaviest cars in the entire field. Today's result means that a fortnight from now, Audi will be travelling to their "home race" in Nuremberg as the front runners in the DTM. At the same time, the handicap weight will be reduced from 21 to merely seven kilograms.

Fourth place in 12-hour race in Belgium

BTCS: In the 12 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps, Jean-Francois Hemroulle and Tim Verbergt in the Audi A4 Silhouette captured fourth place overall. The Belgian duo managed a strong chase to make up ground after the front left-hand wheel hub had broken as a result of a puncture, causing the team to lose a lot of positions. The final result is tentative as the winning team appealed the decision of not having passed the final Technical Scrutineering.
