DTM-festival around the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin
On Saturday, May 31, the DTM and its partner series will be presenting themselves during an action day around the Potsdamer Platz in the city centre of Berlin. The programme includes autograph sessions, interviews, driving demonstrations, passenger rides and a public press conference. The start will be at 10.00 h in a specially created paddock at the Marlene-Dietrich-Platz. At 11.00 h, the public press conference will be taking place in the Mercedes-Benz showroom (Eichhornstrasse 3). The driving activities will be starting at noon and will go on until approximately 15.00 h. One week later, the dtm will then be racing at the EuroSpeedway Lausitz with the fourth round of the 2003 season.
Will be present: DTM-drivers Menu, Mücke, Terting and Lupo-racer Stuck
During the DTM-festival on the last Saturday of May in Berlin, three DTM racing drivers will be in action: Alain Menu with the Opel Astra V8 Coupé as well as youngsters Stefan Mücke with the AMG-Mercedes CLK and Peter Terting with the Abt-Audi TT-R. Moreover, the DTM's partner series will be present with race cars from the adac VW Lupo Cup, the Formula BMW Adac championship and the Trofeo Vodafone Maserati. Drivers from the partner series will be present in Berlin, too, like Lupo Cup-driver Johannes Stuck, the son of popular racing driver Hans-Joachim Stuck, and from the Formula BMW the current points leader Maxi Götz. Of course, the young talents from the junior racing series will also be available for photographs and autographs.
Driving activities start at noon -- passenger rides to be won
From 12.00 h, it is action time at a specially created track around the Marlene-Dietrich-Platz and the Potsdamer Platz. First of all, the DTM-drivers with their 460 hp strong race cars from Abt-Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Opel will be taking around journalists in so-called "race taxis", DTM cars with a hot passenger seat. But in the paddock at the Marlene-Dietrich-Platz, visitors can win passenger rides and further attractive prizes, too. The prizes include a passenger ride with Johannes Stuck's Racing-lupo. And last but not least, the scaled-down Formula 1-cars from the Formula BMW and Maserati's noble sports car will be on the track in Berlin, too.
