DTM Hockenheim 2016

The DTM in its particular form is unique. It is the only racing series in the world that is exclusively dedicated to factory-backed teams. Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz are fielding a total of 18 cars – each car represents state-of-the-art technology and, as a result, is theoretically in contention for winning. Audi is defending Champion in the Manufacturers' and Teams' Championships and has won 20 from 36 DTM races in the last two years.
