Winter athletes visit Audi at DTM

Ingolstadt/Klettwitz -- 80,000 fans witnessed the DTM race at the EuroSpeedway last year. The audience at this year's round (Sunday, starting at 1:45 pm live on "das Erste") will also include prominent winter athletes.

Two of the most successful winter athletes of the German Ski Federation (DSV), Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle and Rene Sommerfeldt, will visit the Audi DTM team. National coach Jochen Behle will accompany them on their trip to the Lausitz region.

Cross-country skier Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle won the gold medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City in the relay and silver in the sprint event. Rene Sommerfeldt was the first German cross-country skier to clinch overall victory in the World Cup, in the 2003/2004 season.

Another guest in attendance at the EuroSpeedway will be Michael Dick, who -- as Executive Board Member for Technical Development - is also responsible for AUDI AG's motorsport commitment. After the DTM season opener at Hockenheim and the 24-hour race at the Nurburgring, this will be Dick's third race weekend in a row, which is a clear indication of how much importance the Audi brand attaches to motorsport.

Katherine Legge is now bringing "Glamour" to the DTM. Starting with the race at the EuroSpeedway, the Briton from the Audi Sport Team Abt Lady Power who lives in Switzerland will not only advertise the Audi collection on her Audi A4 but also the women's magazine "Glamour" published by Conde Nast-Verlag.
