  • Entire field within seven tenths
  • Pierre Kaffer in 2004-spec A4 in the top ten

By clocking the third-best time on Friday, the defending DTM Champion, Mattias Ekström, has shown that the Audi A4 DTM has good chances for victory in its “home game” at Nuremberg’s Norisring as well. In blazing heat with temperatures of up to 33 degrees in the shade, the Swede from Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline was leading the field for a long time until being relegated to third place shortly before the end. Ultimately, the leader of the standings was lacking merely 0.018 seconds vis-à-vis the day’s best time.
