Family album

René Rast became DTM Champion again in 2019, marking the second title win of the Audi factory driver from Steyerberg, Germany in the popular touring car series after 2017, and the tenth in total in a motor racing category. Always at close range, from his very first metres in a kart to his biggest triumphs in an Audi RS 5 DTM, have been his parents: Martina and Rüdiger Otto Rast. On the occasion of their son’s second DTM title, the Rasts are opening the family’s album of photographs they took themselves – providing unique peeks into the storybook career of the currently best DTM driver.
