Audi clinches double lead in the DTM
- Runner-up Martin Tomczyk takes lead in the standings
- Mattias Ekström on podium at Brands Hatch as well
- First points for Alexandre Prémat and Christian Abt
In a spectacular touring car race at Brands Hatch (England), Audi captured the double lead in the DTM: Martin Tomczyk and Mattias Ekström in the two Red Bull Audi A4 DTM cars fielded by Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline clinched places two and three although, due to previous exploits, they were driving the heaviest cars in the entire field. Today’s result means that a fortnight from now, Audi will be travelling to their “home race” in Nuremberg as the front runners in the DTM. At the same time, the handicap weight will be reduced from 21 to merely seven kilograms.
