DTM: ACTION IN THE EIFEL

The Nürburgring is Germany’s most famous circuit and a permanent fixture on the DTM calendar. The races on the sprint track attract tens of thousands of spectators to the Eifel every year and, at the same time, are Audi Sport Team Phoenix’s home events. Ernst Moser’s team, which has twice produced the DTM Champion, is based just a few kilometres from the ‘Ring’ in Meuspath. A home victory has proved elusive so far for Audi Sport Team Phoenix.

I LOVE THE NÜRBURGRING AND WOULDN’T MIND DRIVING THE FULL TRACK – INCLUDING THE NORDSCHLEIFE. IN THE DTM, WE RACE ON THE SHORT VERSION, BUT THAT’S GREAT FUN TOO AND TECHNICALLY VERY CHALLENGING.

RACE FACTS

The DTM does not use the entire Grand Prix circuit, but instead the so-called ‘sprint track’. The track features a combination of fast and slow sections and penalises mistakes.

 

Two good overtaking opportunities exist at the end of the start-finish straight and entering the chicane at the end of the back straight.
