  • Changing weather at DTM tests in Spa
  • Tom Kristensen finishes third in morning session
  • Frank Stippler sixth in the afternoon

Changing weather conditions obstructing the two 90-minute test sessions during the DTM’s first “away-from-home” race at Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium) meant that the lap times achieved were not really conclusive. Frank Stippler was the only Audi driver to complete a lap with new tyres in the second test in the afternoon before rain set in. The DTM newcomer – finishing sixth – was not only the quickest driver of the Audi squad but the best in a car from last year as well.
