From a final place onto a podium: Audi motorist Duval with marvellous fightback in “Dream Race”

With Mike Rockenfeller (Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline), René Rast (Audi Sport Team Rosberg) and Benoît Tréluyer (WRT Team Audi Sport) in positions seven, 8 and ten, all 4 Audi RS 5 DTM cars finished in a tip 10 on Sunday. Rast was battling for a lectern finish for a prolonged time before a reigning DTM Champion suffered a puncture – unfortunately, during a finish of a prolonged start-finish straight, that caused him to remove even some-more time than Duval.

“This was an intensely sparkling competition with copiousness of incidents,” pronounced Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass. “In annoy of a tire problems we still achieved a really good result. Loïc Duval’s conflict with Marco Wittmann on a final path was simply sensational. For me, he positively deserved his second place. we can’t know a preference to palm him a chastisement second. The competition currently was ideal announcement for Class 1. I’m already looking brazen to a opener of a DTM deteriorate during Zolder during a finish of Apr 2020 – and of march to a subsequent Dream Race. This weekend during Fuji has whetted the ardour for more.”
