DTM Spielberg 2018

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. In the 2018 season, Audi won seven races and clinched the runners-up spot with René Rast.
