Das Touring Meister
Posted: 20 May 2010
This is what all racing cars should look like. In fact, it's what all cars should look like.
Deutsche Tourenwagen-Masters - you can see why the DTM acronym took off - might be operating in slightly reduced circumstances at the moment, but it's still easily the world's best saloon car championship. The racing's intense, and there are some interesting personalities involved - apart from Ralf Schumacher, obviously - but really it's all about the cars. They're so cartoonishly extreme they could have been drawn by Warner Bros maestro Tex Avery. Is there a better aero device than the cascade of wings around the wheelarches of an A4 DTM?
