Audi cleans up in this year’s DTM
Hurrah! Audi seems to have won everything at the lightly bafflingly Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters, or DTM.
It is, effectively, touring car racing. Only there are just two manufacturer’s competing - Audi and Mercedes (though next year BMW’s joining in). And to make things more complicated, they’re not all running the same car and only some teams have factory backing.
There are two titles to play for - teams’ championship and drivers’ championship. The latter was won by Martin Tomczyk, who was helming an 2008 Audi A4 for Audi Sport Team Phoenix (non-factory backed). The teams’ championship was won by fellow factory-backed Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline, which was running a brace of five rather lovely 2008 A4 DTMs.
To celebrate, here are pictures of something less baffling - knee-weakening Audi DTM cars being driven by mentalists.
