Although no DTM championship points will be awarded for the invitation races in Shanghai, the Audi works team wants to make a good impression in front of the Chinese public. In addition to the six Audi DTM regulars (Christian Abt, Frank Biela, Mattias Ekström, Tom Kristensen, Emanuele Pirro and Martin Tomczyk) Rinaldo Capello and Peter Terting also start. The Italian driver drives an additional Audi A4 DTM looked after by the Joest team. “Star of Tomorrow” driver Terting drives one of last season’s Abt-Audi TT-R racers. All eight Audi drivers only had two short practice sessions before qualifying to get used to the newly built track. Emanuele Pirro about the 2.840 kilometres long circuit.
