Air Kraft: DTM preview
Audi, Mercedes and BMW are going racing, and whoever has the cleverest wings, wins
Posted: 15 Mar 2012
But that's the thing: a modern DTM car is designed for one thing only. To race. There's brain-frying attention to detail, precision and engineering purity, in a car that looks like it was designed by a loon. It's the paradoxes that make it so brilliant. The cars are recognisable, but exciting. Almost attainable, but eyes-wide extreme.
So roll on, Hockenheim. And imagine the fever at the first corner. So much investment, so much rivalry - all that shared history between Audi, BMW and Mercedes, and all of it boiled down to a strip of tarmac 10 metres wide. "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday" never had so much pressure attached.
