The landing at Pudong Airport in the south of Shanghai was gentle and without any problems: on Saturday afternoon, the seven Audi A4 DTM cars and an Abt-Audi TT-R arrived in China, now being held in the paddock, awaiting their first overseas stint at the 2.85-kilometre track. On Sunday, the touring cars adorned with the four rings and delivering more than 460 hp will be among the protagonists in the DTM invitation race staged in the Asian metropolis. The two races, each lasting 30 minutes, will start at 1.10 p.m. and 3.15 p.m. local time, respectively, with live TV coverage provided in both Germany and China. The realisation of the spectacle in the heart of the city required the largest logistical effort in the DTM’s history so far.
