Ekström clinches DTM lead for Audi
Mattias Ekström has clinched the DTM lead for Audi at the EuroSpeedway. A crowd of 74,000 got to see a highly spectacular touring car race, with the Swedish driver engaged in a thrilling fight against the competition. Right in the first turn after the start, Ekström’s Audi A4 DTM fielded by Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline overtook Christijan Albers, who has been leading the drivers’ standings so far, on the outside line. Despite the Dutchman’s vehement attack in the final stage of the race, the Audi driver successfully defended his position, now equalling Albers’ place at the top of the standings. Ekström and Albers had crossed the finish line in second and third positions respectively but both of them moved up one place when the winner was excluded.
