This weekend saw the debut of the 4th generation Audi A4 DTM at the season opener at Hockenheim and once again the Audi can celebrate another racing success with a commanding 1-2-3 finish with Mattias Ekström (the Swede BALLER) taking the flag ahead of Timo Scheider and Tom Kristensen in 2nd and 3rd place respectively.

The new A4 DTM which made a brief appearance back at the Geneva Motor Show features a number of new innovative features with particular attention focused on the aerodynamics. The Engineers used CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) calculations to work on the vehicle’s airflow and the technology specialists have managed to lower the center of gravity as well as reduce the overall dry weight of the car. Power comes courtesy of the 4.0L – V8 engine pumping out 460hp!



Audi have well and truly taken bragging rights after this first race, race winner Mattias Ekström averaged over half a second quicker per lap over the fastest Mercedes of the day! This latest victory also takes Mattias Ekström (the Swede BALLER) to 11 career wins making him the most successful DTM racer of all time.
