  • DTM newcomer quickest of the day at EuroSpeedway
  • Best times for Audi in both test sessions
  • Mattias Ekström fastest in morning

His only second DTM race and already fastest: in the two 90-minute test sessions at EuroSpeedway Lausitz, Audi driver Pierre Kaffer sprung the surprise by delivering the best time of the day. The 28-year-old DTM rookie at the wheel of the Audi A4 DTM entered by Audi Sport Team Joest was the second-quickest in the morning session, then topped this result in the afternoon by achieving his very first best time of the day in Europe’s most popular Touring Car series. This also meant that Kaffer gave Reinhold Joest’s team its first best time in the “new” DTM. In the morning, title defender Mattias Ekström had clocked the fastest time. On Friday, Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline – using different programmes – fully concentrated on gathering as much data as possible for the race.
