Audi driver Mike Rockenfeller faced an unusual challenge during the DTM event in Spielberg: Rockenfeller dared to swap between his near 460 hp Schaeffler Audi RS 5 DTM and get behind the wheel of a Steyer Daimler Puch built in 1948. In a competition with two DTM driver colleagues, ‘Rocky’ also demonstrated his abilities with the tractor. The challenge was to complete a slalom course within a specific time and afterwards to park the antiquated vehicle backwards. In the end, Rockenfeller narrowly missed taking victory.
