DTM finale: Audi to mobilize all forces

Dieter Gass, above all, is wishing for ‘good, high-caliber racing’ and, following the Nürburgring, would like to again confirm at Hockenheim that the RS 5 is the fastest car in the field. “There are good overtaking opportunities at Hockenheim. The performance among the three manufacturers has been very balanced in the most recent races, even when deducting the weight difference,” says Gass. “That’s why the fans can look forward to two interesting races in which we’d like to sell ourselves as best we can.”

The first of the two final races, which might already produce a decision in the title race, will begin on Saturday, October 17, at 13.30. The 18th and last race of the year will start on Sunday, October 18, at 15.15. ARD will be airing live coverage from Hockenheim starting at 13.00 and 15.00, respectively. Additional live streaming will be provided at www.dtm.com and www.bild.de. Tickets for the season finale at which the first Champion in the Audi Sport TT Cup will be celebrated as well are available online at www.audi-motorsport.com.
