DTM countdown: Mattias Ekström’s race against time
- Only eight weeks before the season opens at Hockenheim
- Left hand in plaster after sport accident
- Good fitness helps the Audi factory driver
One man is particularly happy that the new DTM season starts relatively late: Mattias Ekström (32). The Audi factory driver broke his left wrist in a sport accident in the middle of February. As a result a race against time began for the two-time DTM Champion, since the Swede aims to be sitting at the wheel of his Audi A4 DTM when the season opens on May 1 at Hockenheim.
