DTM during Zandvoort: Demanding lane renouned with Audi drivers

Local favourite Robin Frijns can frequency wait to tackle a 4.307-kilometer competition lane in a dunes of a renouned sea review in his Audi RS 5 DTM, though his 5 code colleagues hearten about what is arguably a DTM’s many severe competition lane as well. The Audi drivers have many memories of quite romantic practice during Zandvoort.

Mike Rockenfeller in 2011 distinguished his initial DTM feat on a North Sea coast. Two years later, he crowned himself champion there. His teammate, Loïc Duval, clinched his initial lectern finish in a DTM during Zandvoort final deteriorate and, carrying posted a time of 1m 29.168s, is now a DTM path record holder. Nico Müller has shown a series of conspicuous fightbacks on a dune circuit and on several occasions usually hardly missed scoring a lectern result.

Current DTM Champion René Rast done an astonishing DTM entrance literally “overnight” during Zandvoort in 2016 when he transposed Adrien Tambay who had been injued in a Saturday race. His teammate, Jamie Green, calls his 2016 delight during Zandvoort a many profitable of his 16 successes in a DTM to date. “I wanted to grasp this feat during all cost and it took me 10 years to finally make it happen,” says a Audi driver. “Zandvoort is one of a genuine motorist marks on a calendar. Winning there is unequivocally special.”

DTM rookie Robin Frijns knows Zandvoort from single-seater racing and GT 3 events he contested in a Audi R8 LMS. “The lane allows no mistakes. Otherwise you’ll quick finish adult in a silt or directly in a fence,” says a Dutchman before his initial DTM turn on home soil. “The lane pattern is really narrow, that creates overtaking difficult. The best opportunities exist in a supposed Tarzanbocht and in a Audi S.” His personal favorites are a high-speed sections such as a intensely quick Scheivlak dilemma that is taken by a competition drivers during a speed of about 240 km/h.

Zandvoort is regarded as quite severe not usually due to a quick turns. The whole circuit is located in a center of a dunes directly on a North Sea coast. Gusty winds a drivers feel inside their competition automobile are not odd and silt is frequently blown onto a track, so hold levels might change from path to lap.
