Ingolstadt/Hockenheim -- "Is there a dream left" -- this is the name of the new song which Leslie Mandoki and his Red Rock Production have produced right in time for the start to the new DTM season this weekend at the Hockenheimring. The song will accompany the DTM Champions Timo Scheider, Mattias Ekstrom and their teammates during the title fight in the most popular international racing series and also support the Audi drivers at the 24-hour race on the Nurburgring and the 24 Hours of Mans.

As one of Germany's most successful, internationally active music producers, Leslie Mandoki has acquired an outstanding reputation over the past decades. All of his projects with big international stars such as Phil Collins, Lionel Richie or Joshua Kadison as well as national star acts like the No Angels reflect his passion for musical content.

Mandoki was contracted by Audi as the musical director for the market launch of the Audi Q7. This project put him into contact with the DTM scene as well and gave birth to the idea of producing a song dedicated to Audi's racers, resulting in "Is there a dream left." "The song is a hymn of praise for the successful Audi drivers and motorsport," explains Mandoki, who is a big fan of the DTM, motorsport and the Audi brand himself.

Bobby Kimball and Chris Thompson will sing the song. Kimball is regarded as a living legend. He became famous as the vocalist of the band "Toto" and has since been successful as a soloist as well. Six Grammys and many world hits like "Africa," "Rosanna," or "Hold the line" were shaped by his voice. Chris Thompson became popular primarily as the vocalist of "Manfred Mann's Earthband" -- particularly with songs like "Davy's on the road again" and "Blinded by the light."

"Is there a dream left" is the song for the 2009 Audi motorsport season in which the brand with the four rings has two historic chances: In the DTM, Audi can become the first automobile manufacturer in the history of the most popular international touring car racing series to win the prestigious title for the third time in a row. At the 24 Hours of Le Mans, AUDI AG has set its sights on the ninth overall victory and would thus equal Ferrari on the perennial list of the best contenders.

"Is there a dream left" is available for downloading from the internet at www.audi.com free of charge and can also be used as a ring tone for cell phones.

A mp3 version of the ring tone is available at www.audi-motorsport.info in the "downloads" section
