Hungarian home turn for Audi in a DTM

Posted on 12. Jun, 2017 by in Audi Canada

For a patrol around Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass, a revisit to Hungary is roughly like a home turn since Audi’s plant in Győr is located usually an hour and a half’s expostulate from a competition track. That is since many of a roughly 11,000 employees are going to transport to a Hungaroring again this time and keep their fingers crossed for a Audi campaigners.

Last year, a fans during a Hungaroring witnessed a ancestral day for Audi. For a initial time, a manufacturer managed to explain a initial 4 rows of a grid in a DTM race, followed by a one-two-three-four-five-six outcome for Audi on a initial and a one-two win on a second day of a event. “We’re anticipating for a likewise clever display of a new Audi RS 5 DTM,” says Gass. “At Hockenheim and during a Lausitzring, we were strong. However, since there are usually few overtaking opportunities during a Hungaroring, good grid positions will be utterly crucial. At a initial races this season, we still had some intensity in this respect.”

As a runner-up in a standings and Audi motorist with a best points score, Jamie Green will be entering a third DTM competition weekend of a year. The Briton will applaud his 35th birthday before streamer for Hungary and is a good fan of a Hungaroring: “For me, a lane numbers among a biggest hurdles on a competition calendar. Due to a many turns and brief straights, we have to constantly stop and accelerate again. There’s no territory in that we can disencumber your hold on a circle and there’s no time to think. In 2014, we was struggling utterly a bit there. Last year, with second place on Saturday, things went clearly improved – that’s where I’d like to collect adult now. Mike Rockenfeller expects “the tires to reduce some-more heavily during a Hungaroring than during a initial dual events.” Mattias Ekström, a widespread leader of Sunday’s competition in Hungary in 2016, is forgetful of “making it into a tip 5 in subordinate – in that case, anything will be possible.” René Rast and Nico Müller have lustful memories from other racing array of a lane which, by contrast, is new to DTM rookie Loïc Duval. “Still, my aim is to finish both races in a points,” says a Frenchman.

In further to a new Audi RS 5 DTM, fans in Hungary will be means to see a Audi RS 3 LMS since a TCR International Series will be holding an eventuality with a production-based furloughed cars as partial of a DTM’s ancillary module for a initial time. The dual DTM races will be promote live on ARD: on Saturday starting during 14:10 and on Sunday starting during 15:00 (CEST).
