Two Audi A4 DTM cars on the front row

DTM 2004
Martin Tomczyk, Audi A4 DTM #6 (Audi Sport Team Abt)

For the first time ever in the DTM, two Audi A4 cars will be starting from the front row of the grid. In the super pole qualifying session at the MOTOPARK Oschersleben, Martin Tomczyk clinched pole, 76 thousandths of a second ahead of team-mate Tom Kristensen. Leader of the standings Mattias Ekström will be starting the race from the fourth row. After the Swede in his Audi A4 DTM had clocked 1m 20.471s in qualifying, and thus the fastest time ever to be achieved by a DTM car at the MOTOPARK, he twice hit dirt on the track in his super pole lap. With merely 0.252 seconds behind, Ekström clinched seventh place. Christian Abt missed the single car qualifying of the top ten by as little as 82 thousandths of a second. Emanuele Pirro and Frank Biela will be starting from positions 13 and 15. The race at MOTOPARK Oschersleben will start at 2 p.m. (local time) on Sunday.
