British driver Adam Carroll will start his debut DTM race from 17th on the grid in front of a sell out 140,000 crowd at Hockenheim. It was never going to be an easy task for the Team Futurecom-TME driver, who is in the 2005 Audi A4, and up against the 2006 and 2007 spec cars.

“It was not a great start for me and 17th is certainly not where I want to be. I’m not exactly sure what happened out there. We made some changes during the weekend which will be better for the car in the long run but obviously didn’t work for qualifying. Now I’ve just got to get my head down and get on with tomorrow’s race,” said Adam.

It has been an eye-opening weekend for the 24 year old who has not only had to get to grips with a new series and get used to working with a new team, but even relaxing and walking around in the paddock has become difficult as a whole new fan base demands his time and attention.

Adam, from Portadown in Northern Ireland has won races in every series in which he has competed. Most recently in GP2 with three wins coming at some of toughest circuits in the world; Imola, Monaco and Spa. In 2005 he was part of the BAR (now Honda F1) Young Driver programme, testing the F1 car successfully on a number of occasions. Adam’s car runs in the colours of sponsor Ethos Organics and Castrol-Edge.
