Audi celebrate double victory in the DTM

DTM 2004
Tom Kristensen in front of Martin Tomczyk

Tom Kristensen and Martin Tomczyk clinched a superior one-two victory for Audi in blazing heat at the DTM’s seventh round at the MOTOPARK Oschersleben. At the same time, Audi driver Mattias Ekström – finishing the race in fifth place – expanded his lead in the overall DTM standings to nine points. Right after the start, Martin Tomczyk, the quickest driver in the qualifying session, had taken the lead ahead of team-mate Tom Kristensen. Yet the crucial decision favouring the six-time winner of Le Mans was taken in the pit lane: Kristensen came in for his second pit stop two laps earlier than Tomczyk, thus clinching his first ever DTM victory. Christian Abt, who finished ninth, barely missed scoring a point. Frank Biela and Emanuele Pirro finished the hot battle in 13th and 15th place respectively.
