“Rocky” has been racing in a renouned furloughed automobile array for a 4 rings given 2007. “Twelve years are a prolonged time,” he says. “They enclosed many cold races and we wish that there’ll be many more. The DTM is intensely severe and accurately that creates it a lot of fun. I’m already looking brazen to a new, even some-more absolute four-cylinder turbo engines that will be used starting in 2019.” Rockenfeller has been deprived of a feat in his DTM home competition to date. “Obviously, my festival would be a ideal occasion,” he says. “The many new races have shown that nothing’s unfit in a DTM.” 

“Rocky” final mounted a lectern in second place in a deteriorate opener during Hockenheim. His best outcome during a Nürburgring to date has been a second place as well. For Rockenfeller’s team, a Nürburgring is a turn on home dirt too. Audi Sport Team Phoenix is formed usually a few hundred meters divided from a paddock in a industrial park in Meuspath. Ernst Moser’s patrol that supposing a champion for Audi in 2011 and 2013 has never won a DTM competition during a Nürburgring either.

They were abolished immediately after a competition during a Nürburgring. “I’m still assured that this was a right step,” says Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass. “We’re saying pristine racing in a DTM.” At Misano, Audi many recently did good in intensely formidable conditions. “This shows a peculiarity of a whole squad,” says Gass. “And during a Nürburgring, anything’s probable in terms of a continue too.”

In a Eifel, a DTM races on a scurry circuit with a length of usually 3.629 kilometers. “Actually, I’d adore to expostulate a full lane including a Nordschleife,” says Mike Rockenfeller. “But a brief pattern is a lot of fun too and technically really challenging. There are dual prolonged straights where we have good overtaking opportunities interjection to DRS.”

As a Audi motorist with a best points score, René Rast from Audi Sport Team Rosberg is roving to a Eifel. Following a formidable start to a season, a pretension defender in a many new 5 races mounted a lectern on 3 occasions. Remarkable as good is Robin Frijns lass season: The Dutchman from Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline is a second-best Audi motorist in a standings. As he lives usually about 170 kilometers divided in Maastricht, a Nürburgring is roughly like a second home turn for Frijns.
