Audi to host numerous prominent guests

Ingolstadt, October 14, 2010 - In addition to thrilling racing, Audi will offer its fans many interesting guests at the DTM race at Hockenheim this weekend.

Actress Alexandra Maria Lara and her colleagues Till Demtrøder, Yvonne de Bark, Jumbo Schreiner and Fritz Wepper have announced their attendance. All the other guests are sportsmen and -women: the two-time Olympic gold medalist, world champion and two-time America's Cup winner Jochen Schumann, Silke Hahlbrock, Toni Wilhelm, Tina Lutz, Philipp Stanjek, Robert Stanjek plus Tornado world champion Oliver Schwall will represent the Audi Sailing Team Germany. Biathlon Olympic winner Kati Wilhelm, Karl-Heinz Riedle and Andi Brehme, both 1990 soccer world champions, toboggan Olympic winner and world champion Felix Loch as well as European boxing champion Alexander Dimitrenko (heavy-weight) would not miss the German finale of the DTM either.

The Audi RS 5 will present itself to the spectators at Hockenheim in a fascinating parade: 35 of the 331 kW (450 hp) coupes will be handed over to dealerships at the "Audi Drive Away" on Sunday before the race by the German Sales organization.

Alexandre Premat successfully completed his second of three marathon runs within seven weeks. After the Paris-Versailles run on September 26 the Audi "factory" driver contested the Paris 20 Kilometers on October 10, just seven days before the DTM race at Hockenheim. As one of 21,315 entrants, he managed the leap into the top tenth of the field - he finished in 1798th place. On his arrival at the Eiffel Tower after 1h 29m 49s the Frenchman had achieved an average speed of 13.36 km/h. On November 7, he will tackle the New York City Marathon.

Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Management Board of Audi, and Michael Dick, Member of the Management Board of Audi for Technical Development, will visit the brand's motorsport squad at the ninth round at Hockenheim.
