  • New V8 engine for Audi A4 DTM
  • DTM is the most attractive racing series outside Formula 1
  • Long-term commitment planned

After clinching the title in 2004 with Audi “factory” driver Mattias Ekström and being defeated this season by only a narrow margin, the objectives for next year are very clear: “We want to recapture the lead from Mercedes-Benz to thus underline our position as the sportiest manufacturer in the premium car segment,” says Professor Dr Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG. “At the same time, together with Mercedes-Benz, we are going to continue to work on strengthening the DTM’s role as the most attractive racing series outside of Formula 1. With a long-term commitment to DTM, which currently is planned for at least three years including 2008, we are adding our part to that.”
