Christian Abt to end his DTM career
- Last DTM race at Hockenheim on 14 October
- Decision matured last winter
- Audi factory driver intends to stay active in motorsport
Christian Abt will end his DTM career on 14 October at the close of the 2007 season. The Audi factory driver announced this decision on Friday during a press conference at the Norisring race. “For me, the DTM is the greatest racing series in the world,” stated the 40-year-old driver. “That’s why I’ve always planned to step down while I’m still going strong rather than waiting until people start writing me off behind my back. Although this departure is difficult, I’m leaving with my head held high, strong and happy because I’ve achieved my goals in any situation. And most of all I’ll be taking lots of good memories with me.”
