Williams could be looking to get involved with the premier German touring car championship DTM.

It is reported by Switzerland's Motorsport Aktuell that German carmaker Opel is keen on a collaboration in the series with the famous British Formula One team.

Williams chief executive Adam Parr is quoted as saying that a meeting with Opel took place "a few months ago", but described reports of a likely collaboration as a rumour.

But he added: "Personally, I would love to do it. I would be very interested."

Opel is thought to be on the verge of announcing a DTM programme, with spokesman Volker Brien confirming a decision is due "within the next two months".

Reports say Opel would compete with its Insignia model, prepared by Williams.
