Fourth pole position for Audi A4 DTM

DTM 2004
Mattias Ekström, Audi A4 DTM #5 (Audi Sport Team Abt)

In the DTM’s eighth round of the season, an Audi A4 DTM will yet again be starting from the pole position. Leader of the standings Mattias Ekström was the quickest driver in the singled timed lap (“super pole“), thus clinching the best position on the starting grid for the third time this year. The Audi A4 DTM in its debut season today even achieved the best qualifying time for as much as the fourth time. Martin Tomczyk, Christian Abt and Tom Kristensen – securing the fourth, fifth and sixth places on the grid respectively – complemented the strong performance of the Audi teams as a whole. Today’s qualifying results mean that on Sunday at 2 p.m. local time, all four Audi A4 DTM cars fielded by Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline will be starting from the first three rows. Emanuele Pirro of Audi Sport Infineon Team Joest – with an eleventh-place finish in the qualifying – barely missed the super pole by 85 thousandths of a second. Team-mate Frank Biela will be starting the race from position 14.
