FLAT OUT ON THE 'Kö' - DTM GOES DüSSELDORF
Düsseldorf: in the great DTM Launch, held on 26th March, on the 'Königsallee', DTM is going to accelerate flat out. From 13.00hrs, two-time Formula One World Champion Mika Häkkinen, Jean Alesi, Heinz-Harald Frentzen and their colleagues will present their brand-new cars on Düsseldorf's famous shopping mile. As an additional attraction, the shops located at the 'Königsallee' will be open on Sunday, 26th March, from 13.00hrs.
"We are delighted that Lord Mayor Joachim Erwin invited DTM to come to Düsseldorf," said Hans Werner Aufrecht, chairman of the ITR e.V. organiser DTM. "The Düsseldorf citizens are known as sports enthusiasts and will have the chance of getting very close to DTM, its drivers and teams. I'm convinced that this will turn out to be a very special experience for everybody."
Joachim Erwin, Lord Mayor of North Rhine-Westphalia's capital, Düsseldorf, is sure: "The best international touring car series coming to Düsseldorf represents a very special highlight. The Düsseldorfers are going to welcome DTM enthusiastically."
In the paddock that also will be erected at the 'Kö', the fans can take a close look at the DTM cars and the cars used in its partner series. In addition to demonstration runs, autographing sessions and competitions held on the ARD show stage, Düsseldorf will also be the venue of the first duel between Audi and Mercedes-Benz: the pit-stop contest. Who will be the first winner of the 2006 season?
Just two weeks later, from 7th to 9th April, the Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg will be the venue of the season opener.
