  • Difficult conditions at EuroSpeedway
  • Frank Stippler quickest Audi driver on Friday
  • Mattias Ekström in fifth place

On Friday, Frank Stippler was the quickest Audi driver at the EuroSpeedway Lausitz, which is the venue for the ninth DTM race of the season this weekend. Heavy rain pouring down on the 3.442-kilometre circuit made conditions extremely difficult and caused several cars to spin. Only during the last minutes of the second test session the racing line dried off, meaning that Friday’s results – with five Audi A4 DTM cars among the top ten and title defender Mattias Ekström 14 places ahead of the current leader of the standings, Gary Paffett – are not very conclusive.
