New Audi A4 DTM dominates in racing debut

DTM: With a commanding 1-2-3 victory at the Hockenheim DTM season opener Audi, yet again, underpinned the brand's slogan "Vorsprung durch Technik", not only on the road but on the circuit. 93,000 spectators (throughout the weekend) witnessed an impressive premiere showing of the new Audi A4 DTM, which outperformed the competition in its racing debut, clinching positions one, two, three and five. At Hockenheim, the race was crucially determined as early as at the start: Mattias Ekstrom managed to take off a bit quicker than his team colleague Timo Scheider, who had started from the pole position. The Swede had to briefly relinquish his lead only during the two mandatory pit stops. Timo Scheider, Tom Kristensen and Martin Tomczyk completed Audi's total triumph with positions two, three and five.
